Strengths:    Gear display

Weaknesses:    Tricky and more time to reset.

Bottom Line:   
My husband fixed the problem of accidentally turning off all the trip info, mph, etc. ~ I unknowingly kept pressing the on-and-off button on the left hood just by varying my hand placement. So he peeled back the rubber to expose the button and placed a metal washer (with a hole in the middle)centered over the button, replaced the rubber covering over the washer, which holds it in place. He also trimmed off the little rubber nipple on the underside of the rubber covering. This works! But, the only drawback is, in order to reset and zero out after each trip, to press left and right button at the same time requires peeling back the covering and pressing the left button with a little tool, like a pen tip. But I always have this handy, and I'm getting used to it, and am getting pretty fast at it. I feel this is better than the alternative: losing a lot of your trip mileage and tracking. I really like the gear disply enough to go through this every time!

Strengths:    Cool display of current gear and integrated cadence without the need for an extra sensor.

Weaknesses:    Very difficult to program. Too easy to accidentally reset. Expensive.

Bottom Line:   
This computer started out as a great idea, but has numerous problems in its execution. First off, it is very difficult to program, not because the instructions are confusing, but because the rubber set buttons are so unresponsive. The first one that I had took me over an hour to get half way through programming. I sent that one back for a replacement. The replacement only took me a half hour to program, but my finger tips still hurt from pushing the set buttons! Once it's programmed, the unit functions fairly well. The gear indicator is accurate, and the cadence and other functions seem to work well. That is, until you accidentally push the stop/start button and it stops tracking speed, mileage, etc. It is VERY easy to accidentally stop or reset the unit while riding because the buttons are placed right on the brake/shift units, so when you're really cranking and not paying much attention to your grip or the display, it gets reset and you don't notice it until you're several miles past the turn at mile X on your cue sheet.

Strengths:    Broad range of information, integrated into brakes/shifters, easy to read display

Weaknesses:    Overly complicated for the price, Inability to switch between bikes without reentering all data

Bottom Line:   
This product has all the potential in the world....integrated with the shifter/brakes, ability to set up for several bikes but comes up short with several shortfalls primarily the difficulty to shift between bikes.
