    Good bit of kit, especially the cable free aspect. Lots of functions and provides more than enough information especially for the price.

    Pros
    Small, large screen, great functionality

    Cons
    Sensor battery does not last long and light button is difficult to press, especially in gloves.

    Overall I really like this computer. Considerably better than my old Axiom (it eats batteries for breakfast). I have had mine for 2.5 years on my MTB and it never fails me. Basic and simple to operate. Easy on the wallet.

    Pros
    Large readout, 2 year + battery life, Automatic or manual start/stop of ride timer. A/B functions to keep track of overall trip and individual legs. Light. Easy to setup/operate

    Cons
    Mounts are flimsy and even though I have never lost mine, I worry about it coming off every time I take a minor tumble. Does not register slow walking speed. Spoke magnet needs occasional adjusting (might be normal)

    Overall this is an excellent everyday bike computer. The menu system is quite simple and doesn't take long to master. Versatility of two wheel/bike options is useful.
    I'm on my third in 7 years and they have been very reliable. Definitely recommended.

    Pros
    Large speed display.
    Instant average speed indication.
    Easy menu system.
    Wireless for no mess.
    Rugged enough for trail riding.
    Provides enough information for most riders.
    Ability to set for two bikes/wheels is useful.

    Cons
    Lost my first one after a fall and the latch had worn so didn't retain the head unit. Light is of minimal use and difficult to operate when attached to the stem.

    This rig does all the average rider will need for a good cost.

    Pros
    Keeps most all the stats that you will probably need for a trail ride. Battery seems to last a while.

    Cons
    More zip ties would be nice with the purchase.

    This does exactly what I need it to do. Easy to set up and mount onto your bike. Highy recommended

    Pros
    Easy to set up. Large numbers make it easy to read while you ride.

    Cons
    None yet. Wary now of battery life from earlier review.

    Works well once dialed in right, lots of functions. But it will eat batteries, if you wanna keep your odometer milage and do not keep it on file for battery changing you are screwed.

    Pros
    Works well, no wires

    Cons
    Batteries die pretty quickly.

    Small and versitile. This computer has everything that you need to keep track of your rides and can be used on 2 different bikes. Easily mounts to your bike and easy to read. The system is put together great.

    Cons
    Once its mounted, dont mess with the mounts, can sometimes be hard to dial in.

    Great computer that has been very accurate and hasn'tlet me down in 4 years. recommended since most peoiple don't ride in the dark anyway...

    Pros
    Small and light. Mounts easily to handlebar or stem (my preference). No wires to run or get tangled/snagged. easy to operate. nice display that is easy to read while moving down the trails.

    Cons
    backlight is a cheap system like on the digital watches from the '80's. You can't see the whole screen. Should have some sort of EL/"indiglo" style light.

    Great computer. Easy to use. Includes two settings for different sized tires or multiple bikes. Has everything except cadence. Wireless. Directions are only weakness, but still easy setup.
