      Comments:

      I got this so I could monitor cadence. The display is very easy to read, but that's about all I can say that's good about this thing. It's about as accurate as map my ride, which isn't saying a lot. It's very temperamental and often quits one or more functions in the middle of a ride. It's frustrating to stop and align things PERFECTLY in order to get it working.

      Regrettably Unreliable

        Comments:

        Wish I had read the prior reviews before buying. Only had it for a few days. After the first ride, one of the set buttons froze and is not workable. On paper, the fact that its wireless seemed like a great idea (particularly in concert with the sensor inset in the Trek fork). In reality, small buttons are difficult to work while riding and the fact that it "broke" on only the second ride is discouraging.

          I use this for cadence mainly, but speed and distance are handy as well. Set up was easy, pairing was easy and connecting happens within a few seconds. Buttons are simple and display is easy to read. Much better than the wired computer I had used before. Has 9 functions, couldn't be simpler.

          No help from Bontrager customer service!! They do not answer emails. Computer has issues when pairing next to another node(s)in the bike group. Readings varies from one ride to another as in distance.

          I use, or try to use it, in my road bike, a madone 5.2 . I regret buying this device. It does not get started at least 20% of the time. The HR detector never worked even though I am using a Garmin ANT+ HR monitor. I agree with the other reviewer that this device should be recalled.

                Extremely difficult to figure out how to use, and this is coming from a gadget guy. Doesnt have a charger. Very hard to pop in/out of the mount. Didn't have the right size hex wrench for the Speed Trap sensor (need a really small one...they should've included). Lousy product that I returned.

                    I'm already using a Garm fr60 and Sony Ericsson phone with ant+ but was looking for something on my steering wheel for easy reading while my phone takes gps info without using it's screen so it doesn't depleeds battery. So far it's just what I needed.

                        Unreliable, buttons don't always work and the read-out is often inaccurate. Trek will need to recall all of these and the Node 2.1 (I tried them both). Funny my Node 1.0 worked great for about 2 years.

                        Comments:

                        Takes up to a minute to load, and wheel must be spinning so it can locate the sensor. After a cafe stop you need to spin the wheel again to have it restart, and this makes you look like a fool, plus I just want ride, Cateyes start up immediatly. It also sometimes shuts down for no apparent reason, and you have to repeat the start up proceedure. I would not buy another, I purchased it because it works from my Garmin sensor, but would rather settle for a wired Cateye than go through the hassel of getting this to start up on each ride.
