Trip distance / odometer inaccurate

By Sue

from St. Cloud, MN

About Me

Comments:

Although the screen is easy to read, I was disappointed in that the trip distance / odometer is inaccurate. Went for a 10 mile ride and it said I went over one hundred miles. (My average speed was great!) I was on a bike trip across Minnesota. I rely on the trip distance to help me know how much farther until the next rest stop, etc. Again, my trip distance / odometer jumped. There was no way of knowing how far I had gone and how much farther I needed to go. Also, the sensor that goes onto the stem of the pedal broke within days of having the Bontrager 300. Luckily I found it on the floor of my garage. I duct taped it to the bike. I would not recommend this item to anyone.

Trip Distance Inaccurate ...

By Sue

from St. Cloud, MN

About Me Advanced

Comments:

The trip distance / odometer gives inaccurate readings. I like to have an odometer because I do a lot of training rides, and I bike across Minnesota on a bike event. If it's twenty miles to the next rest stop, I like to be aware of how far I still have to go. On several of my training rides, when I had gone about 10 miles, the odometer showed over 90 miles and another time over 100 miles. (That sure made my average speed look great!) Unfortunately, it also malfunctioned on the ride across Minnesota. Since I was in unfamiliar territory, I had no way of knowing how much farther to my next rest stop. Also, the sensor that attaches to the pedal, a rubber piece that fits over the stem of the pedal, broke within days of my purchasing the Bontrager 300. I used duct tape to keep it attached.

Expensive Paperweight

Pros

  • Very Readable Display

Cons

  • Distance Wrong
  • No Custom Wheel Size

Best Uses

Comments:

Bought this thinking a 2.4ghz more expensive wireless speedometer would keep accurate speed. On my first trip out, I went 10 miles. Speedometer said - 95 miles. Piece of junk. Also, neither I nor the shop could figure out how to set a custom wheel size. It's in the manual, but the speedometer won't do it, just generic "700x25c".

not an improvement on 15 year old technologies

Cons

  • Cadence Not Functional
  • Complex Clumsy Start
  • Cadence Not Consistent

Best Uses

  • Trip Distance--that's All

Comments:

Wanted to work on some indoor cadence drills over the winter and the avg. speed. and trip distance works fine but the cadence is: 1. inconsistent with number jumping from 30 to 86 to 109 every few seconds--VERY frustrating; 2. Cadence too often says 00 (doesn't work at all on many rides). Con: 3 Poor starting mechanism.
