Mounting system not too good and gimmicky features

PostedFebruary 6, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, gimmicky
This computer looks good and has been working well. My main criticism is that it was not easy to install securely on handlebars (well, impossible to install really securely), because of the shape of the bracket and thin feeble sticky rubber pad supplied. The problem lies in the fact that Cateye are trying to accommodate both handlebar and stem mounting with one bracket, curved in two directions, which really will not work. It doesn't give enough contact area, so I had to add more bits of rubber to fill out the hollow.
A more minor criticism is that I don't think it's a good idea to make the sensor mounting pad sticky, as that makes it hard to reposition if you don't get it right first time.
I think the readouts for "CO2 saved" (how on earth do they calculate this? Compared to what?) and calories used are pointless and gimmicky, and just get in the way of the information you want to see if you are cycling through the display.
Apart from these criticisms it is a basically good product, but only average value for money.

Easy set up and usage...

PostedSeptember 2, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
If all you need is a basic computer then this is the one, it was very easy to install, very simple to use and seems reliable after a few weeks of cycling.

Decent run-of-the-mill wired speedo

PostedAugust 31, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Simple features, easy to use
Unsure why Cateye included a CO2 offset meter, waste of space in my opinion.

Solid product if standard features

PostedAugust 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Hasn't been used for long but hopefully the longevity of the product shouldn't be a problem. Easy to attach despite being a wired model and was set up and running quite easily.
