To start, almost everyone is correct in stating it's difficult to install; honestly, it is! The instructions suggest a 1mm distance between the magnet and the sensor, which basically means: as close as you can get it without the two pieces hitting! To achieve this, the task takes a considerable amount of fiddling, but once you find the right spot on the fork and spoke to where they come closest without hitting, you're golden. I spent about 10 minutes doing this. After the magnet and sensor were on, the setup of the computer was a breeze. It asked for wheel diameter (which is required if you want accurate readings of speed, distance, etc), age, weight, time settings, etc. If you read the instructions, it will explain how to set each of these values.
I want to address a few of the complaints on this page. The first was from a young man who said he was riding 60 mph. Your problem: you didn't set the correct wheel diameter! The instructions provide you a handy chart to tell you what code to type in based on the corresponding diameter. Now, if you don't know what a diameter is, or don't have the intelligence to look it up online, you probably shouldn't be using this computer in the first place.Read more ›
Under $10! Can't be beat! Ride on!!
Update 8/2013: It is a little over $10 these days, but still a great little unit!
Since everyone will need wheel factor, this is what I found from Trek's websites:

20" X 1.75" 1600
24" X 1.95" 1920
26" X 1" 1950

I did notice that one review mentioned you cannot reset things such as distance, calories, etc. All items are easily cleared. The device has two buttons. The right button allows you to scoll through the functions. The left button when held for about two seconds resets that function to zero. So before each trip or each day I reset distance, calories, average speed, etc. That way you can keep track for trip, a day, a week, or whatever you desire. The device shuts down when you stop so you don't have to worry about shutting it off.
Installation is simple. No tools required, except maybe a pair of pliers to pull the supplied wire ties nice and tight. The only thing that is a bit tricky is that the sensor which mounts on the fork, and the magnet which attaches to a spoke need to be close together. The instructions say 1mm. Thats only about 1/32 of an inch. Mine works at about 1/8 of an inch. You need to slide it up or down the spoke/fork to get the correct clearance.Read more ›
Update: after moved from one bike to another, it started to work again! I believe there are some bad contact in the wiring but do not know exactly where.
Update: My unit died after 14 months! The problem happens on the wires. I would still give it 4 stars for its price.
It is a good gadget for riders.
1. It is accurate in mileage - better than any of those wireless bike computers.
2. The temperate is not accurate.
3. The installation is easy. Pay attention that the direction of the bands to fasten it and the direction of the clip on your steering.
4. The battery comes inside the meter, not separately, have to change shortly after start.
5. Functions are good and practical, no gimics.
