    Strengths:    Nice looking. Easy to read data. Very reliable.

    Weaknesses:    Sensor magnet for the cadence needs to be anchored better to the crank arm.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is for the Vetta RT77. Computer worked flawlessly right out of the box. Have had no problems with it in over two years I've been using it. It's great. Cadence feature works beautifully, although the sensor magnet came off the crank arm after repeated wet weather riding. Reattached with some 3M double sided tape. The instructions were pretty good. Could not ask for a better cycle computer in my opinion.

    Strengths:    Fits oversized bars
    Installation is fairly straightforward

    Weaknesses:    Provided directions are very poor
    Cadence didn't function on my unit
    I didn't like the feel of the buttons
    Button presses seemed unintuitive to me (holding vs single press etc)

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought this computer purely for the cadence feature. I already had an inexpensive computer, but it lacked cadence so I thought this would be a good upgrade. Wrong. I could never get the cadence to work. Everything else worked, but even the cheapest computers provide those features these days.

    Strengths:    Cadence, cadence, cadence.

    Weaknesses:    Install instructions, small buttons, screen size.

    Bottom Line:   
    I purchased the RT77 a couple of days ago and set about installing it. My comments here are purely about installation and are offered only for first-time cyclocomputer buyers/installers. Here goes. . .

    The RT comes with instructions which are reasonably clear as to the use and controls of the computer. Where the instructions fall down dramatically is on intallation/wiring of the device. There are no instructions or diagrams on clean routing of the cadence cable. Without having installed 3 cyclocomputers in the past, I would have been at a total loss as to how to run the cadence cable properly. If you are installing your first cyclocomputer, expect to pay a bike shop to install it for you--which changes the economics of your purchase significantly.

    All of the preceding said, once the computer was on the bike, it worked well. As other users have said here already, the buttons and screen could be larger, but for $29, I am happy with the performance of the RT77 thus far.

    Strengths:    Cadence
    Easy to read display

    Weaknesses:    Sometimes I struggle to reset the daily odometer

    Bottom Line:   
    Down here is pretty dry, BUT I've been caught on the road raining, and the unit has worked as before. I like the cadence option. It has been now in two road bikes, I'd to add a piece of cable to mount the speed sensor on the rear wheel (trainer blues), no problems either there.

    Very pleased with it.

    Strengths:    None

    Weaknesses:    Abysmal quality control. Will never buy Vetta again, despite all the hype about the V100.

    Bottom Line:   
    A piece of unadulterated crap. Worked fine for first week, then wire to candence mount broke when I pressed on it lightly.

    Then I rode it in the rain. Fagetaboutit! Never worked right again. Tomorrow I am going to enjoy cutting it off my bike and replacing it with a Sigma 1200.

    wired computer, Vetta RT77

    hello everyone I never had any luck with wireless cycle-computers (I had two Vetta V100 wireless units with cadence for 6 months which never worked well, first one was replaced and second one thown out in disgust). Reading this forum, I am not alone. So my LBS is suggesting a *wired* Veta RT77 ... Read More »
