It's true, the CatEye Strada Double Wireless Computer doesn't deliver GPS, touch-screen, or ANT+ technologies. Big deal. Because, what it does deliver in spades are accurate, reliable readings for the metrics that we all use the most.CatEye designed the Strada Double with its ease-of-use at the forefront of design. Accordingly, its ClickTec design provides a simple-to-use, single button operation system. So, you can easily navigate through metrics like current speed, trip distance, elapsed time, average speed, maximum speed, and cadence. That's right, for under $100 you get access to cadence readings.This is made possible by CatEye's ISCTec sensor. It mounts to the chainstay of your frame and is responsible for both speed and cadence readings. And as a technology update to problems that we've experience from CatEye in the past, the Strada Double's wireless communications are now transmitted through 30 different ID codes. This way, there's no confusion or intermixing of your readings while you're riding in the peloton. Another couple of key features are the Strada's minimal size and weight. The CPU measures out to 46.5 x 31 x 16mm, and it only weighs around 22 grams. Additionally, the CPU setup is a simple affair, as is its mounting setup. In fact, CatEye includes its tool-free FlexTight bracket that mounts to either your stem or bars.The CatEye Strada Double Wireless Computer is available in the color Black and in one size. Each computer includes a CR2032 battery, FlexTight mounting bracket, and an ISCTec sensor.

Update: Computer had 1 episode in April 2015 & another in May 2015 where screen freezes. Speed & ride distance just stuck on the display (does not change speed or distance, even when you come to a stop), does not respond to anything. Had to use all clear button which led to losing my total odometer reading (approx 14.5K mi, not happy). Called CatEye the 2nd time it happened & they said send it in. They sent me a replacement updated version which is the 2.4GHz wireless version. No questions, no receipt from Amazon, & extremely fast service & shipping. I mailed mine on a Sat & had the new one in hand the following Thurs. CatEye stands behind their products & takes care of their customers. This is a very rare thing these days & is how it should be done.
I'm mostly satisfied. It's nice not to have wires coiling around your fork and cables to reach the computer. Other positives are: it's sleek and good looking; you can mount it either on your stem or your handlebar; it has two separate trip odometers; a live clock; elapsed time; avg. speed; max. speed and about every other measurement you could want on a bike. And, of course, mph (or km/h) and cadence. And also pace arrows next to the speed to indicate whether your current speed is faster or slower than your average speed.
I miss two functions of my old Cateye. It allowed you easily (while on the move) to swap the position of the mph and cadence readouts, so you could have the cadence up above, in larger numbers, with the speed below. It also allowed you to set up the elapsed time with a choice of having it continue or stop when the bike is not moving. This unit defaults to having the time stop when your bike is stopped, which I suspect is how most people want it, but it was nice to have the choice with the older unit.
As others have noted, no backlighting makes this pretty much impossible to read in dusk or at night. And for my middle-aged eyes, there are occasions when clearly seeing the smaller numbers on the screen, even in daylight, can be a bit of a challenge.
Installation isn't as bad as some of the reviews make out. Yes, the instructions are a bit of an organizational mess (the hardest part is finding the right language!), and you will spend 10 minutes or so just figuring them out -- but all of the needed information ultimately is there. I think the biggest tip I can give you is to put all the zip ties on (once you've made sure you're putting things in the right orientation/place) and snug them up without over tightening. Then you can do the fine-tuning to get the gaps between the magnets and the sensors right and, only then, tighten.
A nice touch is the computer allows you to set two wheel sizes, so you can use one computer with two bikes (obviously you'll have to separately buy a second mount). Also appreciated is that you can enter/change your total odometer mileage at any time through the menu system, so you don't lose those hard-earned miles when you're changing batteries or otherwise doing a total reset of the computer.
Accuracy seems very good so far. I do notice a tiny bit of a lag (at least compared to my wired computer) in the cadence registering when starting up or stopping riding, but not enough to be an issue. It seems to reflect pace changes when riding quickly enough.
So, overall, very good (but not quite 5 stars).
