The Cateye Velo 9 is a great entry-level wired cycle computer for riders who want to monitor their ride performance without breaking the bank. The large screen is easy to read and comes pre-programmed with tyre sizes to make set-up even easier.
The Velo 9 now comes with additional functions including calorie consumption and a carbon offset measurement. All the functions you?d expect from a cycle computer come on the Velo 9 including current speed, elapsed time, avg/max speed and total distance etc.
For the price, this wired computer is fully-featured.
This unit does what it says, nothing more nothing less, It all i need to know but if you need more then you get what you pay for.

What are bike computers?
A bike computer is a brilliant gadget which tells you how far and fast you’ve ridden and how long it took you. They are easily fitted to your frame or handlebars and are ideal as a training aid or just to simply chart your cycling.
Who needs a bike computer?
Anyone can benefit from a bike computer. If you’re serious about making improvements, they easily provide all the data you need to analyse your efforts. However, they can also make a handy navigation tool for exploring.
What are the choices?
The more expensive the computer, the more functionality it has. A basic computer will tell you your time, speed and distance, but at the top of the scale, you’ll find GPS navigation, heart rate and cadence info, instant ride sharing and the option to race against yourself. Wired computers are directly linked to the sensor, whereas wireless are ‘wire-free’.
What should I buy with it?
If a mount isn’t supplied, you’ll need one of these to fix the computer to your bike. Additional mounts are great if you have more than one steed. Cadence and heart rate sensors may be needed if not supplied.
Waterproofing is an essential feature to look for, as is ease of use (especially when wearing gloves). Make sure you remove your computer if you’re leaving your bike unattended.
