    Comments:

    I'm a recreational cyclist who typically rides between 1000 and 2000 miles a year. For 11 years I rode a Trek hybrid bike with wired cyclocomputers. I recently upgraded to a Trek Madone for a lighter, faster ride. One of the features of the Madone is a socket in the fork for a wireless digital sensor. I wanted to take advantage of this mount for the cleanest installation, best aerodynamics, and lowest weight. Trek is not very clear in its literature about compatibility of this sensor with other brands of computer, so I decided to go with the Trek Incite. The Incite is very easy to install and it's sturdy and lightweight. I've never had a problem with pairing the sensor and the computer, and the data transfer has always worked flawlessly. My main complaints about the computer involve its design. The computer does not start automatically at the beginning of a ride, and although it has an auto start/stop feature, if the bike doesn't move for about 5 minutes, the computer will not restart automatically -- you must push 2 buttons simultaneously. If you forget, the computer will not start. The display is a little slow to react, especially in cold weather. Speaking of cold weather, the Incite has a built-in thermometer which is practically useless. It's very inaccurate -- usually about 5 degrees off -- very slow to respond -- and unduly influenced by the sun. There's also a low battery indicator that doesn't seem to be mentioned in the instructions. I didn't know what the icon was, and I even called Trek to find out. The customer service person didn't know. Finally, after the battery died and I replaced it, the indicator disappeared -- so what it means is that the battery is low. The clock also runs slow. On the plus side, the data transfer is flawless, and I believe the distance and ride time data are accurate. You can reset the odometer easily after you replace the battery. It's a decent computer, but if I ever have to replace it, I wouldn't buy another one, as long as I can get a better model that uses the same sensor.

    I received this as a gift and I didn't enjoy it. The instructions didn't really tell you how to activate it when starting to ride. I would turn it on, seemed like it was reading my speed, then stops reading while I'm riding. I'd lose track of mileage or average speed while on the trails. I think I needed to ride really slow at first to get an initial reading. The thing stops registering anything while I'm well into my ride. With 4 buttons to change functions, I'd forget which is which. I haven't fully given up on it but it's a sign that more expensive toys aren't always better or 'improved'.
