Bontrager’s Trip 100 computer will score points among coordination-concscious riders thanks to coming in four options – red, neon yellow, black and white. This neat unit is totally intuitive and easy to set up, but it’s not without its flaws.
The rubber ladder strap needs a fair heave to get it round 31.8mm bars, and it’s a real fight to fit it to 35mm bars. The calorie reading is based off such limited data that it’s largely pointless, though the unit does a great job of displaying the rest of the data.
The two-line display prioritises big, bold average, max and current speed readouts up top, and the other five features below. Each has a separate side button for scrolling and the bottom button then toggles between the current reading and clock displays.
The analogue wireless communication isn’t any more flaky than digital wireless units. Overall the Trip 100 is well priced.
