|I'm thinking of replacing Sigma Sport Targa with the cordless Cateye 7 on my road bike. I originally got the Targa because it has a stem mount. Looking at Cateye's website, they do sell a stem mount with zip ties. Does anyone have any opinions or experience with this Cateye?

|Have them on three of my bikes. No complaints. Sometimes a little tricky getting the sensor lined up with the magnet, but great reliability.|

|Do not like it, all buttons are hard to use and very easy to get stuck. Beside, it is overprice.|

|...the new cordless unit that Mavic introduced at Interbike? looks nifty...might be worth an investigation.

|I've seen it in magazines but have yet to see it up close. My LBS says they should have one in a couple of weeks. The price will be around $100. I've seen the Cateye Cordless for as low as $30 so that's why I'm considering the Cateye. That being said, I do use Mavic K's and the new Wintech computer would fit quite nicely.|

|I've had the Cordless 7 for 8 months now without any problems.
In fact I just bought and switched to the stem mount a few weeks ago. Did so I could mount a headlight on the bars. I bought it straight from Cateye for like $3.
The stem mount is nice but I would add a strip of double sided tape (not foam) to the mount as it can slip a bit if you grab the stem. It comes with some non-slip material on the mount, but it doesn't keep it as snug as I would like. It's not a problem while riding, I just have a habit of grabbing the stem to walk the bike....
Over all I really like it.
