My first bike computer; I like how the design gives you a lot of info on one screen. There is rarely a need to hit the button. The piece that attaches to the spoke of your tire is made of metal with a metal screw so it doesn't slip or shoot off like other ones that I have read about. The only possible issue that I have seen is that the screen sometimes has a slightly dark appearance when I first start riding (and I'm not in direct sunlight at all). But it seems to clear up within a few minutes. Overall very good.

Wow! It's great to have 4 items on the same screen? Controls are real simple - one button! Well constructed - heavy sensor wire.

But, no average speed - aargh. And, it falls asleep at rest stops, and sometimes resets itself when it wakes up. I'm not sure whether this is user error or a defect....

First, the good:

1. The display is wonderful. Tells you what you want clearly and with great choices.
2. Mounting is the usual pain in the neck, but the instructions are adequate.
3. Same for setting up the display functions.
4. Quality of workmanship seems very fine and it does what you want.

Now the bad:

1. It failed in less than 60 days and it wasn't the battery. Amazon has a 30-day return policy, so no help there. I e-mailed Planet Bike, the mfg., but no answer yet.
2. The round bracket for the display mount on the handlebars is gigantic, as though the handlebars are as big as an exhaust pipe! You have to use rubber, cardboard, duct tape, etc. to build up a thick collar on your handlebars to mount the display head. That ugly mounting collar looks awful and is not very secure.
3. Instead of buttons to push, one slides the whole display forward on the mounting, depressing a button on the bottom, to make display choices. This is a pain in the neck and as clumsy as it sounds. I much prefer a couple of top-mounted buttons

Would I buy another? Maybe. I'll know if Planet Bike supports me with a replacement. If no replacement, then I reject this product and it's mfg.

I love this bike computer. It is so easy to use, much easier than the Schwinn 17 function which I returned. With the Planet Bike computer I don't have to worry about resetting the computer when I want to look at the data because the information I want is displayed on the screen. There are four functions displayed at one time, if I want to see the other function (I mostly don't), one push on the bottom and the bottom line toggles between two different functions (I can't remember which functions), but it is really easy to see all 5 functions without having to remember a complicated series of button pushing. Unless you are needing more data, this is the bike computer to buy.

Shipping was quick. Opened it and waited a day or two for hubby to install it. After following the instructions it would not work correctly. I could get the clock function to work but nothing else.

I remember reading a review post of a guy who had trouble getting his working and returned to his review and he gave a very good and needed tip in order to get the bike computer functioning correctly. Here's his advice:

"Remember to align the Spoke Magnet at the same level of the Wheel Sensor where a glossy mark like (-) at the upper side (not the lower side of the Sensor). Do not get confused. See the picture in the manual."

This advice made all the difference and is very important and is not clear in the instruction manual.
Other than that small frustration once we got it running it's been a fantastic odometer. I LOVE being able to see it's 4 functions at once. It turns itself off if your bike remains idle for too long but saves your information. Just a little movement from your bike and it turns itself back on. Buy this odometer you will not be disappointed. It's very readable and I had no problem seeing it on sunny days or gloomy ones.

Just got back on a bike since 1951. Bought this amazing cyclocomputer to keep daily record of travel. It is TERRIFIC!! Took about 30 minutes to get it installed to my satisfaction, however think the instruction book has made an error. States that it needs to be "1-2cm" apart. No way! My first rotation of the front tire started registering everything and the distance is at least 3/8"in apart. Everything very easy to view, goes to sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity but wakes right up on the 1st turn of the front tire. Am just a recretional rider and this one will last me to the "last ride". VERY satisfied w/this purchase. :)

Protege 5.0 is a eat little computer. Took me like 15 minutes to install, I had plenty of cord from the sensor to the unit, and it works just as described. Nice little size but easy to read. So far its been totally weatherproof too.

I recommend this bike computer for anyone interested.
