Cateye Velo 5 computer review£14.99

No-nonsense reliable unit

BikeRadar score3.5/5

This simple wired computer gives you the no-nonsense basics in an easy-to-use format. You get a two-line display with your speed up top while on the bottom row you scroll between trip distance, total distance, maximum speed and time of day using one chunky rubber button, a solid ‘click’ letting you know you’ve pressed it. And that’s it.

You don’t get your ride time or average speed – it really is just the basics – and the mount will only attach to your bar, not your stem. For £15, though, you can’t complain.

The figures are certainly on the small side but you’re unlikely to have any difficulty reading them and interference from other electrical devices won’t be an issue.

The skinny sensor is pretty unobtrusive and setting up this computer to begin with isn’t complicated – you just need to wind that wire around a cable to keep it out of harm’s way.
