Cateye Velo Wireless Cycle Computer
Clearly I have managed to get a faulty product as it is impossible to set up, returning to flashing 26" after every reset even with a fresh battery.
Difficult to mount to bike as cable ties do not attach brackets securely so the sensor/magnet clearance of 5mm is unsustainable . Release mechanism on the bracket may as well not be present for the amount of good it does. Be prepared to break nails if you wish to remove from your bike (assuming yours works of course)

Great bit of kit; really easy to understand, install and use. Bought to replace a major brand one I did buy though really struggled to understand and which after fitting didnt work anyway. Should have read the reviews of that one first - a lot of duds and early breakdowns. Which is why I went for this one as a replacement; great reviews and they were right. Easy to fit, use and reliable on 2 bikes so far. Recommended.

Excellent wireless cycle computer
An excellent basic wireless computer with the added feature of average speed. Easy to set up, fit to the bike and easy to scroll through the different read outs on the move.

A quality product at a reasonable price, easy to use and appears sturdy.

Overall does what you need
Fitting was nice and easy as it uses cable ties. These are not great because no matter how you try you can not get them completely tight but I put mine on my handlebar stem and it stays in place. The sticky bad they give you helps a bit.
The cable ties on the detector on the fork again don't fully tighten but I have had mine on for 2 weeks now, mainly road and cycle track riding (including bumping over tree roots) and it has stayed in place.
No light so you can't see it in the dark. And you can only see current speed and 1 other measure but the button is easy to press even with gloves on so you can switch between the readings if you want. I tend to leave mine on average speed or distance.
I have only had one incident of interference when the readings just started to show silly values but it only lasted a few seconds. I assumed I was passing a house that generated a lot of radio noise in the relevant band. I have LED lights and these do not interfere.
This is my first device since trying to get back into cycling and overall it has done what I want.
Cheaper online than in store which is really stupid. I stood in the store and ordered mine on my phone for collection at that store.
Only major con is the release clip in impossible to use so you can not practically remove it from the bike, but I doubt a thief can either

Purchased a Cateye velo wireless cycle computer for my hybrid, was impressed with its quality, accuracy and simple installation that I purchased another for my road bike.

Does excactly as it says on the box
It works very well and excactly what I needed.
The only complaint is the lack of a bracket instead of the cable ties to hold them on fork and handlebars but otherwise excellent
