The Review
Good for your first wireless cyclo-comp with cadence but you wouldn't want to buy another one.

Strengths
Serves it's purpose. All-weather proof and can withstand heavy rain. Bang-for-buck. Sleek and simple looking. Easy to set up and synchronise. Functions are great.

Weaknesses
Cadence sensor fails occasionally. Speed sensor failed once. When you stop, it takes 4-5 seconds for the computer to finally display a zero on the screen-meanwhile, due to the long reaction time, your average speed decreases. Previous computer that's cheaper takes less than 3 seconds. Buttons are slightly hard to press.
