Good, but hard to read if stem-mounted

    Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

    Happy with this computer for the most part - it's easy enough to install and configure, the data reported is accurate, etc. I like having one reader for both speed and cadence (you mount the reader to the left rear chainstay and mount the magnet on the rear wheel) vs. having two separate readers. That's one less battery to replace, and battery replacement is a snap :)

    My gripe is with readability of the display. I have it mounted on the stem of a drop bar bicycle. Unless my hands are on the bar tops, i.e. unless I'm looking at it from an angle, I cannot read the display - it gets dim when you look directly at it (not a battery problem - installing a fresh battery was the first thing I tried - you must indeed look at the display from an angle, not straight at it). Accordingly, this computer is NOT RECOMMENDED for drop bar use and a stem mount. Otherwise, you should be OK.

    Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

    I use this computer to track my commute and for long rides on the weekends. The best features for me are the wireless design and the many functions it has. Wireless function is a good feature because wires are usually damaged over time making the computer useless or by generating interference. Cadence is one of the functions included, which is rarely included in computers. The price is not low, but it is reasonable considering the functions. Casing does not look of a very high quality.

    Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

    I really like this product. I bought it because of it's display. It has both cadence and speed at the same time, plus another function. Just what I've wanted, having come from a Cateye that you need to toggle back and forth between one or the other. Setup was easy and installation wasn't bad. My only complaint is seeing the display. There's not enough contrast between the digits and the background. It's fine in direct sunlight, but get the sun behind you so there is a shadow on the display and it's gets hard to read. I installed new batteries before using it, so low battery isn't the problem. Oh, and Nashbar, this would look like a much more expensive unit if you would change the two buttons from cheap looking red to something else, like black!

    Good but limited viewing angle

    Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

    Having interest in a Cateye Double wireless, I saw this as a perfect cheaper alternative and as a way to outfit my wife's bike and my own. Atttachment wasn't bad - zip ties. The base rubber wasn't super easy to align while putting on the zip ties but not terrible. I was able to install it rather quickly. First try and all aspects were working. Instructions are fine and supply adequate detail to be able to set up everything. the order could be improved but otherwise all the information was there. the only issue I have is with viewing angle. I mounted the computer on my stem. I have a relaxed geometry road bike where the stem has a very slight upward angle. If I ride on the tops, the lcd is clear. When I am on the hoods, they start to disappear depending on the angle of the light. When I am right over it and in the drops, the screen cannot be read. Moving this to the tops of the bars would allow a better tilt and solved the issue but it is not my first choice for mounting. Really like the cadence and all the metrics. I would recommend this to someone looking for an inexpensive computer with wireless cadence.

    Love the product. Just what I wanted. It does take a while to install if you want it to look nice and be solid. The extra time is worth it.

          Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

          Not sure if this is normal, but when i was biking in below freezing temps the unit blanked out and reset itself to zero in the middle of a ride...after i warmed it up in my hand it worked again but all data from the ride was gone. Also if you need reading glasses you will need biking glasses with built in readers to see all the numbers on the unit.

          Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

          Given the price, I was initially skeptical. However, it is very easy to install. The one sensor design is not only a clean design but not finicky. While it does have a plastic feel, buttons have been responsive. Setup/programming is very easy. Initially, used smartphone to measure its accuracy and found my unit very accurate. Battery has lasted all season (nearly 6,000 miles). I had no issues in rain this summer, nor now in below freezing weather. Backlight could be brighter. Overall, extremely satisfied with this product.

          So far, pretty good.

            Comments about Nashbar Tempo Double Wireless Cycling Computer:

            Installation was pretty painless. I was, however, getting inconsistent mph/distance readings even after moving the magnet several times to get a better signal. I have logged about 150 miles of the 250 I actually rode while using the device. I have recently added a second magnet to get a consistently clear signal. Now it seems to get a consistent reading.

            The housing does not have the quality feel of other brands, but for the on sale price, I did not expect it to. I have not ridden with it in the rain as yet, so I cannot speak to whether or not it would be waterproof/water resistant.

            recommended, with added magnet (easily remedied) reservations

                  I bought this computer for my girlfriend replacing a Vetta V100 that never seemed to work. This one worked from the start. A very simple computer to mount. I like the single sensor on the back wheel stay and the large screen. Easy to read without glasses. It contains cadence which was a strong reason for purchasing it. Easy engage and disengage from the computer mounting bracket. Didn't give it a 5 star rating as haven't had it long enough to know it's durability.
