IMPORTANT INFO : The instructions seem to show that the transmitter should be installed on the rear (trailing) edge of the RIGHT fork, but that might lead to the transmitter getting sucked into the wheel spokes if it comes loose or is knocked inward. I installed it on the front (leading) edge of the LEFT fork, and also much closer to the wheel hub (to reduce the distance between the magnet and transmitter), and it works perfectly.
And now,.......my new wireless Strada.
Wireless, sounds great, but not quite. The problem is that in handling the bike stem or bar the Strada accidentally gets touched or pushed and my information gets erased or changed. Did not have that problem before with my wired Strada.
Also. you should know that removing the Strada from the bracket it difficult, It requires a lot of force to remove it and then it erases the info.
My solution has been to attach the Strada to the stem and remove the whole bracket when I stop to secure my bike. It is easy. Just don't lose the little black wheel to secure it.
By the way installing it was not difficult.
I've only ever used wired bike computers (Vetta), so I found the attachment of the sensor to the fork super easy, and the placement of the magnet equally easy. No wires to run all over! I put mine on left fork (just personal preference), with the writing facing in. You'll see a little indentation in the upper, right-hand corner of the face of the sensor that is the zone you need to line up to the magnet, so get within 5mm of that, the closer the better, and you should be good. The counter with its strap is also very easy to attach. Just make sure to follow the directions, making the counter flat on your handlebars, not tilted toward you. For it to work right, it needs to be parallel to the magnet.
My only issues came because of the tire size recommendations. I have a Haro Del Sol Lxi 7.1, with 700cX40mm tires. They also have an ETRTO (European Tire and Rim Technical Organization) code on them, which is 42-622. According to the table supplied by CatEye, that combination of ETRTO and my tire size isn't possible. lol But it's what I have.
Sooo....I called Haro and asked them what number to use. They said skip the ETRTO code and use the actual tire size. I tried the 2200 that CatEye recommends, but that was a bit off. So, I tried a smidge below that to adjust, 2190, and that was perfect. My point to all this is that your "fitting" may require a little trial and error.
I was going to take one star off because the buttons on the back, especially the reset and mode buttons, are painfully tiny and hard to press while looking at the face of the counter, and programming is not too intuitive. BUT, it's a tiny device that has to do a lot of functions, so I'm letting all that slide. :)
I found the CatEye QuickStart site that was MUCH more helpful than the paper instructions in the box. Amazon won't let me post outside URLs, so just Google CatEye Strada Quickstart.
Plus a really helpful tutorial from Ivan's Bikes on YouTube.
I have purchased 5 of these for different bikes over the last 3 years. All of them are still working perfectly. All together, I have around 8500 cumulative miles on them - mostly harder off road and with some on road training miles mixed in. I have crashed numerous times and they have not been damaged. They have been rained on, sprayed with the hose, exposed to mud and sand, got caught on shrubbery, and exposed to countless hours of sunlight. I have zero complaints about their durability. I did lose the circular plastic thumb tightener that secures it to your bars or stem but that only happened once and now i check their tightness frequently and they are always tight.
When I got the first one, I measured it's accuracy with known distance markers and gps (on straight pavement) and found it to be extremely accurate - as long as you set the wheel size correctly. Later on, with a different bike and same model computer, a 50 mile off road race was physically measured using a measuring wheel (not by gps or computer which will always be less than accurate off road). The Cateye read 50.10 miles at the finish and I took a wrong turn at one point that probably accounted for most of the extra 1/10 mile. It just doesn't get more accurate than that. My gps measured 5 miles shorter (normal variable for all gps off road in the woods) in the same race. I trust my Cateye for the real mileage and mph average over my gps.
I dinged a star due to the fact that although the batteries last a long time (8 months or so when used several times a week), when you have to change them in the head unit, it resets the odometer. A running mileage tally on each bike would be nice to help keep track of service intervals for parts. So if you want to keep the total, you have to write it down each time. All of the settings (wheel size, time, etc) must be reset after a battery change in the head unit (this is the same for most computers), but it only takes a couple minutes. The speed sensor uses up batteries slower than the head unit and will usually last longer than a year.
I only want basic functions and don't care about cadence sensors or a computer that syncs with a heart rate monitor (my cell phone does that if I want it) so this model has been excellent for my needs. When I need another, I'll buy this one again.
