          Bought this only for use on my trainer since wireless range doesn't work well. The wire is not long enought to use on rear wheel. Might try to modify.

                The manual was in every European language except English. Found the English manual on the internet and finally got it programmed. Otherwise very good for the price.

                      The instructions are of no value . Very poor communication from Bike Nashbar. I will probably return the item.

                      Setup not as intuitive as the manual (a tome in 12 languages, tell you everything but what you need to know!) would like you to believe. After much searching, found the info online. NB would be nice to include a printout (or link) to the setup info with each sale.

                      A little frustrating to set up initially. the english online manual does help, But the manual isn't perfect. I bought this as an inexpesive replacement for a new bike. I didn't want to deal with two batteries of the wireless variety. This unit does more than I need.Easy to mount and utilize.

                        I understood from the beginning that this product would have a foreign instructional book, so that didn't frustrate me. I returned this product for the fact that it didn't work. Either I got a "bad egg" or it could be in this product generally. The functions turned on and I was able to program it, but the devices magnetic clamp did not read the odometer and avg. speed.

                              It replaced an el cheapo Bell device that was a piece of junk. It is head and shoulders above the old unit. It is easier to use and seem to of higher quality of manufacture.

                                      I like wired because it's one less battery to deal with, although the sensor wiring is tacky looking. The instructions are on-line in English. When installing the head into the bracket, you must rotate it until a click is heard, or it will not work. The head will line up with the bracket. It's a little tight at first. The rest(programming, using) is easy once you read the directions.
