Whether you are training for a race, using a stationary bike for daily fitness, or just want to know your mileage for weekend rides or commuting, the Planet Bike Protege 9.0 9-Function Bike Computer is the perfect, easy-to-operate computer for multiple uses. A must have for any gadget enthusiast or anyone who is data driven, the Protege 9.0 allows you to track your progress and improvement as you build strength through multiple functions as well as view the temperature and time on one easy-to-read screen. Small enough to fit nicely on your handle bars, but large enough to read clearly, the Protege 9.0 provides all the information you need in a sleek and elegant form.
The Protege 9.0 has a "buttonless" design that allows for a large Macromonitor LCD screen with most of the information displayed on one very readable page. Displaying four lines of information on one screen, the computer provides up to five pieces of data at once without you even needing to press a button. Switching displays only requires a simple tap on the computer, making it is easy to operate in the midst of your ride, even with gloves on. A longer tap on the computer will reset the data. The functions include current speed, speed comparator, ride time, trip distance, dual odometer (for two wheel sizes), average speed, maximum speed, clock, and temperature for up to two different bikes.
The Protege 9.0 makes it easy for you to record and track your trip information effortlessly as you ride. The computer auto-starts when your bike begins moving, and mileage and time stop recording when you stop and restart automatically when you begin again so you can get an accurate reading of your time and distance no matter how many times you stop.
The Protege 9.0 has a two bike capability, allowing you to set the wheel circumference for two different wheel sizes so you can preset odometer readings for both. A single button on the back of the computer allows you to toggle between bikes. An additional wire/sensor harness is all that is needed to use the computer on two different bikes. The computer itself is removable from the holder it sits in and easily switches between bikes.
Built to last, the Protege 9.0 is backed by a lifetime warranty. It comes complete with a heavy-duty oversized wire harness with an 82-centimeter wire mounting kit for the front wheel and a case. The device is ultrasonically welded to be completely weatherproof. Installation is simple with easy-to-follow directions. Combining a clear, easy-to-read display, user-friendly operation, and a sturdy design, the Protege 9.0 is an excellent computer for any biker.

About Planet Bike
In November 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, WI. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.
Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.
Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high-quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, the company strives to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short 10-year history, it has made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the four-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that 10 years ago started as a one-man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve its product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

- We love this cyclocomputer!
I purchased this item for a Father's day gift for my husband, and he is very happy with it! The technology is impressive, and it is easy to use. When we rode across the USA about 15 years ago, these cyclocomputers were far more expensive and less tech savvy. Overall, I would recommend this product!...more info
- Excellent Value from a Mountain Biker
This is the second one I have owned and I use it on my mountain bike. It is reliable and easy to install. What I like most is that I get all the info I need most of the time on the first screen, but I get the additional info with just a tap of my thumb. One of the features I like most is that it tells you the temperature, all for under $25. I have a $200 GPS that doesn't do that. One thing to make sure is that when you install it you get the magnet as close the sensor as possible....more info
- Planet Bike Protege 9.0 bike computer
This bike computer works as described. It was very easy to install and use at the same time. 3-modes to choose from, to switch modes, simply click the computer by sliding it forward on the station. MPH, Temp., clock, ODOM., etc. all seems to be working just fine. I gave it a four star because my bike has smaller handle bars than the docking station, so I had to install on the column (mid-section that holds the handle bars to the bike frame) of the handle bar instead AND i will need to make some adjustments to get it to fit on the handle bar. *****MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL THE MAGNET ABOUT HALF WAY IN BETWEEN THE MODULE READER, ALSO THE TWO DEVICES NEED TO BE VERY CLOSE TOGETHER*** IF YOU DO IT RIGHT THE COMPUTER SHOULD FLASH RIGHT AWAY!@...more info
- Makes exercising fun
I love this thing. It takes some time to install -- about 20 minutes -- but then everything is automatic. It auto-starts when your bike starts moving, and has an auto-off feature that turns off 2 minutes after you stop. It is small and out-of-the-way, but the display is large and clear. I like watching the average speed monitor to see if I'm riding above or below the average trip speed at any given time....more info
- A really great device
I've used a few really bad bike computers, so I wasn't expecting much from this. It really surprised me with its stability, ease of use, and accuracy. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone....more info
- Maximum information in a single glance
Bought this item about 3 weeks ago and have logged 150 miles and am very happy with this product. Looking at the other reviews for this product I have the following comments -
User interface: Very simple and easy to use. Most of the information is displayed at all times. The 4th line can change what it displays and this is done by pushing the whole unit on the mount instead of fumbling for buttons while riding. No other product comes close to this UI.
Installation: Very easy to install. There are no wires to connect. The mounting clamp + cable + sensor is all in one piece and the removable display unit has to be seated over the mounting hardware which automatically connects the sensor. If you have ever assembled any IKEA stuff, this is easier.
Display in wet weather: I haven't tried it yet.
Temperature accuracy: The temperature sensor is at the base of the unit. WRT comments about wrong readings in the sun etc., I would only say that it is obeying the laws of physics as the whole unit gets heated in direct sunlight and correspondingly it shows a higher temperature.
Cons: No backlight display. But then, practically speaking, I rarely ride after dark so I wouldn't consider that a drawback....more info
- Great Product
I have had this unit for about two months. Very easy to install and set up. Functions flawlessly and has all the information on it that I need. I don't see how anyone could go wrong for the price here....more info
- Display LCD functions poorly
I installed this on my golf cart and it functions well except for the display. I've only had it 4 weeks and have put about 50 miles on the golf cart and the LCD segments are beginning to disappear....more info
- 9 For 9
I like this bike computer. Having the 4-line display is very helpful. It was easy to setup and is easy to operate. I like it!...more info
- Planet bike Computer
best computer I have found yet. Pircahsed additional computer for my wife. Simple operation. Three pages of info. Fairly accurate except for temperature....more info
- All I'll Ever Need
I've ridden seriously for about twenty five years but this was my first bike computer purchase as I just felt I never really needed one. Boy was I ever wrong, I love this little thing. Installation is a breeze and operation is flawless so far. Having everything on screen without having to fiddle is great. I really like the way that the computer stops everything when I stop and retains all info until I reset it but the clock continues to display. Restarts when I restart without me having to think about it. Being able to set it for two bikes is also a very nice feature. Only thing I would change is the ability to have it illuminated for night riding. Highly Recommended without hesitation....more info
- just what I needed
it is great! all the features I needed in a simple cyclocomputer. Easy to install and the computer can be easily popped out form the cradle any time I leave the bike....more info
