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?

Thanks.

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.
