Sigma Sport Base 1200+ Wireless Bike Computer
Bad instruction book and you couldn't set up the computer.
The instructions for this product are written very poorly. Once I figured out how to install the computer it failed to except any modifications. It's cheap and I would say, "Buyer beware". I just hope that Dick's will refund my money.

Very good bike wireless computer.
Once you understand the manual & able to the set it up, program the right tire size numbers in the computer. Then it takes a little time(30min)to adjust & dial in the sensor on the front forks. Once you get all that stuff completed, do a test run on the bike. It is a very good computer, don't care much for the Orings. All ready log over a 100 miles on it with no troubles

Good value, good price
My Sigma cyclometer is just right for my purposes. Rides are between 25-40 miles. I like to keep track of: Distance. \ Avg speed. \. These features are all on the Sigma Top speed / Trip time / Sigma is easy to install, easy to program. I really don't have anything negative to say about this cyclometer. Sigma is easy to use, but to get the most out of it, read the Instructions.

Front wheel only, poor instructions
I purchased this to use with my bike on a trainer. The sensor only has enough range to be mounted on the front wheel if the display is mounted on/near the handlebars. I had to return this and purchase the wired version and the wire is not long enough to reach the handle bars either. Instructions are mostly pictures with poor english descriptions.

Love this product!!!
I received this as a gift and was concerned when I read all the bad reviews. Nothing is further from the truth. This product was EASY to set up and install and works PERFECT! I was so impressed with the accuracy. I highly recommend. I don't know what issues others have, but I have been using this for a while and LOVE it, don't know what I did before I had it. Try it!!!

Decent bike computer
Kind of complicated to work, display is not large enough for those that need reading glasses to see, other than that it works well.

It does work
Well it was hard to set up. I had to go online and watch someone describe how to set it up. Directions are not easy to read or use. It is OK, Could be a little questionable as far a accuracy goes.

I got what I paid for
Despite what the other reveiws said, I still purchased the computer. I did find it hard to install on the front fork of my mountain bike. The stretch band that the bike computer came with was too small to fit around my fork so I had to use 2 peices of metal wire and some plastic ties. I did however find the functions easy to use. It does what its suppose to do. My only concern is that due to where on my fork I was able to install it, the wheel measurement is off and, therefor the mph and odometer is off just a bit. I'm no proffessional rider so it works just fine. The odometer is off by a few 10ths of a miles.

This unit does not have a good way to secure the computer to the bike. It took forever to setup the computer using the O-rings. I was wondering why they supplied extra o-rings but I soon found out when the o-rings started breaking. I expected more for what I paid for this item. It seems simple but it is very hard to get the computer to recognize the sensor. Do not get this unit unless you want to spend a lot of time making a lot of adjustments. I've got to try to find something else that will sit on the bike frame and not move while riding and has a good base for installation. Warning....Be ready to work to get this thing to work for you.

Great Bike Computer
This is by 4th bike computer in 2 weeks and finally got this one installed and configured in 20 minutes. I am so happy I did not read any of these reviews before purchasing it from Dick's Sporting Goods. I purchased a Schwinn wireless from [@] and was unable to configure the computer. Purchase a Bell wired from [@] which was very basic with only two functions, speed and time. This is all I thought I wanted until I configured the computer and installed the sensor and magnet and was unable to get the computer to work. I went to [@] and told the rep in the bike department I will purchase the computer only if he could configure the computer. I paid for it and stood at the register for more than 20 minutes and he was unable to configure it so I returned it there and then. I went to Dick's Sporting Goods on 8/2/2012 and asked the rep in the bike department which was the easiest to use and best bike computer. He told me the Sigma Sport Base 1200+ Wireless based on what the pro, one of his coworker has always said. He said if I had any issues I could return later when his coworker would be at work. As I said above it only took me 20 minutes and I was up and riding. I am not sure what all the fuss is about on this one. 1. It has great instructions for configuring the computer and installing the computer and sensor. 2. There are multiple O rings, which I had to use the larger one for the sensor because I have a mountain bike with a larger fork. I can see if others a concerned with the rubber O rings and their durability but as another person said you can always use zip ties.The display is very large and easy to see when riding. While riding you see your current speed and distance traveled. While dormant the time is displayed. I am finally happy with this computer and not having to use my smart phone. This is a great computer and to each his own. All I have to say is if you are looking for a computer that is easy to configure, install and use if you are can follow instructions then this is a good buy. Another thing is if you buy it and have issues you can always return it. If you don't because of the negative reviews you will never know if it will work for you. If I had seen most of these reviews I may have had second thoughts so I am happy I did not see them.
