    Strength:

    More features than most

    Weakness:

    No support

    I used CycloSport CM 4.33 for about one year before it failed. Problem identified as a failed receiver component. No dealer found in USA. Cost of component plus S&H far exceeded the value. Support from SailGB was nil.

    Strength:

    Accurate speed and mileage.

    Weakness:

    Slow to update % gradient

    The horrible rubber band they have holding the computer to the handlebar

    Confusing control buttons

    After several years of use my CM 434 finally bit the dust and I am looking forward to getting another computer from a different manufacturer.

    Why? The % grade took forever to update. You'd get the reading for a patch of hill that you rode like 50 ft. ago. And I'm not sure if that reading was all that accurate

    The rubber band they provide to attach the computer to the handlebar is a joke. Would it kill them to give us an attachment with a screw to secure things? And about a year ago the adhesive that sticks the computer bracket to the handlebar gave out. I had to use some double sided tape to secure the bracket.

    The control buttons were confusing as heck. I've had this thing for 3 years and I still can't remember how to get into the secondary level of the computer information interface (total mileage, total feet climbed, etc...)

    Strength:

    None

    Weakness:

    complexity, awkward interface, lack of accuracy, bad/non -existant support

    This product is deeply flawed in almost every respect. The user interface is not only complex, but awkward... impossible to operate when you are on the bike. The computer is innaccurate...up to .4/mph error in average speed, on every ride.(Note: this is a calculation function, not a distance measurement function: the computer shows 20 miles ridden in 1 hour...but shows an average speed of 19.6 mph). And, support is terrible. When I called the distributor to explain the consistent errors, (twice), I was told that calculation errors are present in all computers, and that I shouldnt expect total accuracy.
    On every level, this product was a disappointment.
