First, the good news, which outweighs the bad:
The CatEye Velo 9 screen is large and easy to see. The single button operation to scroll through the displays is easy and fast. A long push on the same button will also serve to reset trip mileage and stats. Again, intuitive and easy. The unit reasonably accurate with the limited settings that a use needs to input to set it up. The automatic-ON capability is flawless; the computer senses when the wheel is moving and brings the unit up to full power. Otherwise, it eventually sleeps to save the battery and just shows the time like a watch. If you want a simple computer that fits your basic needs, then this unit pretty much fits the bill. The cost is also competitive.
Now the few bad points. Let me say that ALL of the points could easily be addressed by CatEye without much expense. So the long-winded detail here isn't about being critical just to be mean to CatEye; I am going over these things so that...
Fantastic product. I was a little leery to install this because I had never installed one before but the directions were very clear and I was able to quickly and easily install it with just a few typical tools you'd have around the house. One tip I'd give is to make sure you are very happy with the zip ties before you pull them tight. I made the mistake of pulling one tight before I had it in the right stop and had to get a blade to cut through it to get it off. If I'd gone a little slower and made sure I had them in the right space before I tightened it, I would have gotten this installed a lot sooner. Once I got it going, it was pretty intuitive to use. I actually didn't even read the directions and I was able to easily use it on my rides to see how far I've gone, my speed, and my time. It is very useful to easily see your ride statistics as you go so you can make adjustment real time. I thought the price was good too especially for how well it works. I Love it and I would...
For the time that I had this computer on my significant other's bike, the cateye velo 9 worked great. I ordered it to help her build up a little bike she could putt around on with me on rides. It was about the same price as the velo 7 (used) and had a couple extra features. I liked the simplicity of the device and the easy to read screen. Sadly, the bike was stolen and I ended up replacing the compute with a cheaper computer. However, Cateye makes really great computers -I've used them on all my bikes and recumbents to date. The wireless Strada is very good and dead simple to operate. If you wanted cadence as well, the double wireless Strada is a great alternative. However, for the budget minded, the Velo 9 is a great wired computer for you average commuter.
