5.0 out of 5 stars STOP! Look No Further! This Is The Computer You Need
By TK on March 26, 2019
Topics in this review include:

1. Overview
2. Pro’s and Con’s
3. Recommendations
4. How To Measure A Wheel For A Speed Sensor?

OVERVIEW

I’ve spent hours researching two brands of computers because I spend so much time on the saddle and because they are expensive. It’s obvious the leaders are Wahoo and Garmin. I watched YouTube video after YouTube video and what it came down to is ease of use.

I’m not a Garmin hater, in fact I have had three Garmin’s over the years, and they are have served me well. However, their User Interfaces have way too much to navigate and configure. I want to ride, not program a bike computer. Don’t get me wrong, I am very computer literate with 30+ years’ experience writing code. I just want to ride.

Wahoo boasts that if you are familiar with using mobile Apps, you will be familiar with using a Wahoo Element. It’s true, the user interface is well thought out. There is nothing else to say, it’s that simple, and so is connecting other devices like speed sensors. I literally set up and personalized my Wahoo Element in about 10 minutes.

PRO’S AND CON’S

PRO’s
• Ease of Set Up.
• Large screen
• Easy to read in daylight.
• Crystal Clear Black and Grey Screen (Perfect in sunlight). Can also turn on a backlight which is just as easy to read at night.
• Decent Battery life.

CON’s
• It comes with a plastic one-piece platform/base computer mount. Also, it has no torque specification. If you accidentally over-tighten the bolt that hold it on the handlebar, you will strip the plastic threads that holds your expensive computer in place.

RECOMMENDATIONS
• If you want to have accurate data, buy a wheel sensor ($39.00) - do not reply upon GPS data, especially if you ride trails. GPS uses line of sight to run calculations. GPS data is why your STRAVA data is mangled and of course a couple other reasons – you get the idea. A wheel sensor will correct missing line of site GPS inaccuracies. However, you must enter the correct wheel size to have accurate data. I will explain how to do this in the next section.

• Upgrade to a K-Edge mount because the platform/mount that comes with the Wahoo Element is plastic. Yes, the K-Edge mount it’s an added expense and a little pricey, but worth it because it’s sturdy, and sturdy is an understatement. You will have peace knowing when you make it to the bottom of the mountain after hitting, jumps, drops, and rock garden your computer will be with you and in one piece.

HOW TO MEASURE A WHEEL FOR A SPEED SENSOR?

To make this simple, especially for newbies, there are multitude of methods to calculate wheel size. You will find lots of information on search engines, YouTube, cycling computer manufactures, and the sources goes on and on. However, what I found is the majority of these resources make this process more complex than what it actually is. SIMPLY PUT, IT’S MEASURING A WHEEL SO AN INDIVIDUAL CAN INPUT THE CORRECT NUMBER IN THE BIKE COMPUTER SO SPEED AND MILEAGE IS CORRECTLY CALCULATED WHILE RIDING.

You need a couple thigs before you get started.
• ¼ inch vinyl tube. I picked up ¼ tubbing from the local hardware store because it was cheap at $0.19 per foot. Buy about 10 feet, just in case you mess up. You will understand why in the directions below.

• Tape - Meaning you should use any tape that will stick to a rubber tire.

• Tape Measure

• Calculator

• Scissors

• Sharpie Marker

First, you need to measure your tire. When I say tire, I mean the outer rubber of the tire; the rubber that hits the dirt or pavement when rolling, NOT THE RIM that holds the tire. The most accurate method to measure a tire is as follows.

1. Run the vinyl tube along the outer rubber of the tire until both ends meet. See the attached image. It’s the green circle.

TIP: This is where I used tape. Since I did not have anyone helping me and I wanted to get an accurate measurement, I taped the tubing as I ran it along the tire.

2. After running the tube around the tire, mark where the tube meets each other. A snug fit will suffice. After running the tube around the tire, I pulled the tubing off and cut where I marked the tubing. Now you have one long piece of vinyl tubing that needs to be measured.

3. Using your tape measure, measure the length of the vinyl tubing that you just cut.

4. Now all you need to do is perform two simple calculations to get the number you need to input into you bike computer.

Calculations
1. Multiply Inches of tubing you cut from above x 25.4 = Millimeters.

2. Divide Millimeters from the first calculation by 1000 = Meters a.k.a. your Computer Input Setting

Example:

1. 89 inches x 25.4 = 2260.6

2. 2260.6 / 1000 = 2.261

3. Enter 2.261 into your computer.

CONCLUSION
Wahoo Element is my choice for a cycling computer, for everything I stated above in the Pro’s list and much more. In retrospect after using this for a few months, the choice of a Wahoo over Garmin is not even a consideration, the Wahoo Element wins every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 17, 2018
I'm going to start out being honest - I've never been a fan of cycling computers. Always seemed to be a gimmick to me

But I now need a navigational aid so, after extensive research, I purchased the Elemnt

And what an eye opener!
So many useful features especially the GPS navigation. The app, on my mobile, is very easy to use making the computer ideal for me

Only thing is I could have bought direct from Wahoo saving myself £50 - that's not the fault of the seller here though rather mine for not researching further

After sometime........

I still believe this is the best computer I could have purchased. So many functions with not only the GPS mapping and the usual speed/average speed/elevation/descents/cadence/heart rate/time/ride time etc. the Strava segment is superb for my training - pick a sprint, set a target and train/ride until I achieve it (sometimes I take the KOM!)

Brilliant addition to my cycling/running/training kit and highly recommended
