I have this computer on my mountain bike. I bought it for the cadence feature which I wanted for use during training for the AIDSRide. The cadence feature has not worked since the third time I used it after I bought it. From what the salesperson told me in the shop, it seems that the cadence feature is one that doesn't typically work well on most cyclocomputers. The speed functions also haven't worked in a while. It could just be that it's not lined up, but I tried re-align it and it still does not work. I've had other computers that were much easier to line up. Cateye is supposed to be a very good brand, and I've had a few that were extremely durable, so maybe it's just this one unit.

I have two of these units. One is on my Mountain bike the other is on my roadie. I bought the first one at the recommendation of a friend who is a triathlete. It was recommended for its Cadence feature. I put this cyclometer on my MTB to help train for the Northeast AIDS Ride. In training and in actually doing the ride, I rode about 2000 miles with this cyclometer. It operated without flaw in cold weather, rain, hale storms, excessive heat. It has always worked great for me. Its easy to read. You can switch the Cadence reading to the large display to swap it in for the speed reading. Overall very functional. My only complaint is that it is a total pain in the butt to install. The wire ties that came with it weren't long enough to go around the fat tubes on my MTB. So, if you get this unit, get some extra long wire ties.

When I got my road bike, I had the shop install the astrale for me. It has functioned perfectly for over 700 miles thus far.
