|Cateye CC-MC100W Micro Wireless 10-Function Bicycle Computer
Mounts to your stem or handlebar, so you it can be used with aerobars and handlebar packs. Dual bike compatibility allows you to track mileage on two seperate bikes.
- Cateye's newest wireless computer
- LED Backlit display
- Mounts on stem or handlebar
- 10 functions, 12 features
- Inexpensive way to calculate speed, time, and distance.
I wanted a way to compute speed, time, and distance, but didn't want to spend to much since I wasn't sure if the information would be useful. I'm not training for anything. I mostly do 1 hour mountain bike rides and short rides to campus. I was just curious how far I went. This simple bike computer does the trick.
The instructions are a little scary looking, but not too difficult to follow. Just read carefully first. I was up and running in about 30 minutes. The computer itself is simple to use. The MPH is the big number, and I keep mileage on the the small number. Once I'm done riding, I note the numbers and I'm done. It's nothing fancy, but a good place to start if you don't want to spend too much up front. I may upgrade to a bike computer that can store and upload info to my laptop later, but for now, this one works. ...more info
- OK for the first year.... then forget it
I bought this 2 years ago. Getting it to work right was a little difficult, but I eventually succeeded. What worked for me was to put the transmitter on the front part of the fork, not the rear. For some reason, I got no signal at all if the transmitter was mounted to the rear of the fork, but it worked fine in front. It seemed finicky to me, but at least I got it to work.
This spring, I replaced all the batteries - in the transmitter and the head unit. Then I went on a ride. It worked fine for 20 minutes, then the display went to 0.0 mph. Then it came on. Then it went off. I replaced the batteries again (checked them with a voltmeter first to make sure they were good) and same thing. Very erratic. I contacted Cateye Tech support (email only these days - even the phone # tells you to email them) and got no response. Twice.
I'd like a little more reliable unit. And with no Tech Support to speak of, I can't recommend any Cateye products.
- A little powerhouse
This cyclocomputer is truly that; tells you what you need to know, is very easy to install, and represents great value for money....more info
- Great! Very Accurate, Easy to Use! Highly Reccommend!!
This bicycle computer is the best on I have ever purchased, and the most accurate. The instructions are easy to understand and installation was quick and effortless.
When I first installed this computer the speedometer readings were so different from my last speedometer, I tested its accuracy against my friend's Prius. Turns out, this is the most accurate by far!!
Can't recommend enough....more info
- Great with two minor complaints
This is my third cycle computer, and there's quite a bit I like about it; first, it looks cool and is relatively compact. It has every feature I would want, and so far doesn't seem to interfere with my chest-mounted heart rate monitor. This is easily the best fork-mounted wireless sensor available (compared to Sigma and Blackburn), as it's small and solid. It's relatively easy to use, the backlight feature is helpful at dusk.
Now the complaints: The instructions are the worst I have ever seen on any product I have ever purchased. Cateye should be ashamed of themselves, and if you decided not to purchase this for this reason alone, I wouldn't blame you. also, the plastic tie system for adhering the computer to the stem or handlebars is cheap, and doesn't cinch tightly....more info
- Initial review
Cateye delivered as promised with Super-Saver shipping. Product in-tact with no concerns.
Instructions may be a bit confusing for some, but pretty straight forward. Can't figure out for the life of me why 5mm is the max. distance between sensor magnet and sensor zone. For my Trek 4500 this seems too close for comfort while riding the trails. I'll be watching closely during my first ride to see if this thing slips from position. With zip ties I don't think the computer or fork sensor will fall off yet the spoke magnet.... we'll see.
I bought this Cateye because of so many positive reviews. With so many positive comments, I don't feel this will be a waste of my heart earned cash.

- Cateye Micro Wireless
I looked at many computers before selecting this one. My neighbor recommended it over the computers he currently has on his bikes. He plans on getting two new Cateye computers soon. Installation was very easy, and I haven't had any problems at all. It is very accurate. For the price, I really don't think you can find a better computer. I highly recommend it....more info
- Great Features
The computer is a great tool to use when you are riding. It has kept me more motivated since I can set goals for myself based on my previous performance according to the computer. This item works great every time....more info
- Cateye Bicycle Computer
This is a great bicyle computer with top featers and backlighting. It is the main reason I purchased the unit...the button on back is pressed and the display is momentarily illuminated. Another great feature is a choice of mounting options shiped with the unit. It may be mounted on the handlebars in the traditional way, or, mounted on the handlebar stem. The latter keeps your handlebars free of clutter....more info
- Nice features for the price.
Installation and usage was a snap. I really like the size, position and read-out. My complaint is the timer/counter keeps stopping during my rides. I am not hitting the stop button or any buttons, yet it always halts during my last 3 rides. It may be from hitting bumps in the road, not sure. I am frustrated by this problem and hope I can solve the issue soon....more info
- manual start/stop feature a plus
The manual start/stop is the most important feature to me. It's the only way to save all my data at the end of a ride while I'm still on the bike cooling down. Most computers are exclusively auto start/stop, other than the bottom end generic ones that only have manual start/stop or the very expensive ones that have both auto and manual. The only con I have is it could be a little brighter display. ...more info
- Good device if you can figure out the instructions
This is a good bicycle computer if you can figure out the setup instructions. Mounting it was a snap, thanks to zip ties, but the instructions are the worse I've seen for any product. One sheet of paper has "instructions" in six languages written in a tiny-tiny paper saving font. Most of the text is devoted to warnings and features (the assumption must be that the bike shop set it up for you) and the critical section, the setup, is only six sentences long. I was lost after the first sentence: "If the MENU button is pressed with the measuring screen displayed, the menu screen appears." What is the "measuring screen"?
Changing the settings between mph and kph is tricky. The crux move is that the "all clear" button must be pressed to clear all settings.
I hope that Cateye gets enough complaints about the instructions for this product that they rewrite them and TEST THEM WITH REAL PEOPLE. I am a computer programmer and I could barely figure them out.
- Difficult to operate
This is a reliable, nice, bike computer BUT the instructions are incomprehensible. CatEye should be ashamed as they have made bike computers for like 20 yrs.
Their website is sleazy as well as I gave a fair review of the product and they then removed my review from their site after one week.
A good product that is difficult to operate. My friends totally corroborate my conclusions....more info
- Easy to install, works great
I bought two and they both work perfectly. I just used the included tie straps to put the sensor on the front works and then attached the receiver to the handlebars, set the diameter of the wheel (just the number on the rim) and everything just worked. Very cool....more info
- Cateye Micro Wireless
Great product, directions for operation a little confusing but once you get the hang of it it's great. I like the wireless feature, much better than wires lining your bike frame. I recommend mounting on the rear wheel fork and rear wheel. This will allow easy transport and taking off and putting on the front wheel. ...more info
- Works great - wife loves it!
The wife and I love to bike ride just about everywhere. We ride for both fun and exercise.
My wife has wanted a bike computer for a long time. I did some research and found the reviews of this unit favorable.
The unit seems small, but the display is easily readable and the backlighg works well.
The 2 main things that she wanted were a trip odometer as well as a stopwatch feature to help determine how long we have been riding.
The installation was easy,and I am not mechanically inclined. The only slight hiccup is navigating the menus for the initial setup. Other than that everything else was easy to get working. I recommend keeping the instruction sheet as you will need it to accurately setup the wheel size if you ever change bikes and it does not have the same wheel size....more info
- great computer, lousy mount
First off, this thing works great. It was easy to install, a snap to get going, and it does everything advertised.
The problem is that Cateye has paired this great computer with a really poorly designed clip that attaches to your bike's handlebar. After only a week of riding with it, the little tab that releases the computer body broke off. It is a small tab that is connected to the rest of the holder with only 2 tiny slivers of plastic. After a ride I punched it down and it popped off. The result is that the next time I went riding the computer flew off somewhere out there. Fix the holder and it would be great....more info
- Easy to use, comes with everything you need
first thing, it comes with all the zip ties you would need to mount it. also comes with all the mounting hardware you need.
2 sets of data, so if you accidentally reset one of them, you still have another set, or if you're comparing 2 sessions of record.
very informative instruction and easy to understand with diagrams....more info
- Worth it.
Yes, the instructions are muddled. However, setup and installation was a piece of cake. The only thing that I think should be different is having the "Start/Stop" button switched with the "Mode" button, because it seems counterintuitive, but that's just personal preference. If I had to, I'd buy it again. It sits on my bike and does its job. It's worth the money to know your speeds, times and distance....more info
- Mounting system is not good but the computer is great!
The computer is great, it has a lot of functions and features and the wireless works very well. The only thing I was dissapointed was the mounting system, it is with nylon ties while the Strada Wireless has the "FlexiTight" Bracket Mount which has a faster installation. Besides if I need to switch it to another bike is faster and I don't need to have spare nylon ties with me....more info
- Very Poor Wireless Range
Item description says it can reach up to 70CM away from the sensor... well this is not the case at all! Even with a fresh battery, I was only able to reach about 20CM which was not nearly long enough to put on my front wheel.
- Works Great
I've only had the bicycle computer for a couple of weeks, but although the installation instructions are kind of vague, the computer works well. It mounts with double sided tape and cable ties, so it tends to move around instead of being clamped solidly to the handle bar. ...more info
- Great Product
Easy to install and very accurate. I first drove a stretch of 10 miles and then rode it on my bike and it was right on. I would definitely recommend this to a friend....more info
The computer works good at keeping tract of your speed and distance. The amount of time it took to get it was very short. I think that the owner's manule could be a little more straight forword, and the instructions on how to navigate through the different settings should be more clearer to read. Other than that, the product is well worth the money....more info
- Nothing Good to Say
Right now this product is sitting in an open box on my desk. When I installed it on my Mongoose it turned out that the sensor and the magnet were too far apart to get a reading. Nothing stated that it would not work with a Mongoose bike. The only way I could find this out was to open it and install it. When I tried to return it to the retailer, Niagra Cycle Works, they refused return because it was opened. I would appreciate it if any one can tell me how I would know it didn't work unless I opened it, I would love to hear it. I have contested the charge on my credit card and will see what happens. I will probably lose but at least others will see this and hopefully cost Niagra Cycle Works more then the stinking $40 it cost me....more info
