Strengths:    Looks nice

Weaknesses:    Unreliabile.

Bottom Line:   
I haveused many cateye products icluding lighting systems and cycle computers and found them to consistently do exactly what they claim. Recently I decided to have all my bikes use the same type of computer. I brought three strada cadence units. Within weeks the cadance sensor cable broke on one. Soon after I found a second stopped working because of corrosion of the contacts. The third now stops working because it is loose . I jiggle it and it works again but hard won ks aren't recorded. I can"t believe cateye have released such a rubbish design. I realy can't believe I have three of these pieces of crap.

Strengths:    Lightweight, well made.

Weaknesses:    Wiring, long term stability of the mount.

Bottom Line:   
These are a very popular computer, can't believe no one's reviewed it. The GF and I must have 5 or 6 of these going on all the bikes. They do what they claim to do. My beef is that after a couple of years the computer will no longer sit tightly in the mount and begin to slip and fail to read signals, sometime later it will fall out entirely, esp when bumped lightly. Until that happens, its great!! It is the mount/base component that is at fault due to soft plastic. Installation is pretty easy, however you may not like the aesthetic of all the wires running along your bike's chainstay and downtube. In a fairly heavy rain the contacts between the computer and mount will short out, you have to pull the computer out and blow the water off to get it displaying again. 1 x CR2032 battery life is about a year for me, these cost about $3. I find the display hard to read at times, as it is not huge, but that is because it is not huge, it is small! I keep buying them, so I must think they're the way to go.

Strengths:    none

Weaknesses:    it does not work (speed and cadence reads zero or other incorrect value) and the warranty support is almost as good - 4 weeks of waiting for replacement and only because I kept ringing the shop every week. The LBS installed it so there is no issue of "user error", it worked for a first few rides and then it stopped working or worked on and off, erratically.

Bottom Line:   
my review is similar to previous one by Gary Geller, in almost all respects. This computer is rubbish and the Australian CatEye distributor (is it Pacific Brands?) are incompetent (or worse!). I returned it back to the shop and after 4 weeks of waiting and 4 phone calls they are finally giving me a replacement but I dont have any faith in this product or warranty support. Dont buy CatEye cycling computers - this is my honest opinion. I have had 5 cycling computers over last few years - this is the only wired one that did not work at all. Zero out of 5 score, pity 1 is the lowest one on offer.

Strengths:    - Small size
- Good performance while it lasted !

Weaknesses:    - Not reliable
- Looks to have super flimsy cables
- Zero customer service

Bottom Line:   
Very poor product. Bought for a second bike and the speed sensor stopped working within a month. The shop couldn't figure out why it stopped working, couldn't do anything under the warranty and 3 weeks later the UK distributor has still not responded to my email. My Cateye HR10 heart monitor was also a complete waste of money.

CatEye Strada Cadence (wired) problems

who is using wired CatEye Strada Cadence? I got one in Dec 2009 (3 months ago) and my bike shop installed it (so there is no finger pointing) and it only worked for a few rides. Then it started to read speed and cadence wrong or just show zero in one or both cases. The shop fiddled around a coup ... Read More »

cat eye strada cadence problem

The cat eye computer on my bike is having some issues. It's about 1 1/2 years old and every time that I come to a stop and then start to accelerate the readout stays at '0' for speed. I have to 'wiggle' the computer a little for it to start up, and this gets to be a pain on my commute, plus it throw ... Read More »
