Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good...with a caveat I've had several CatEye bike computers and they all work well. I got the Padrone for my new fat bike and it works well on the Alaska trails. My one complaint is that since the mode button is activated by pressing the front of the computer (rocking it), riding over very rough terrain sometimes causes the computer to vibrate enough to cycle the modes. Twice it actually reset itself completely, however I do ride fast on some pretty rugged single track. I also like that you can save your odometer reading when changing the battery. Go get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intelligently designed to be user friendly Aside from the usual difficulty of figuring out the mounting instructions from tiny hand-drawn diagrams and sparse text, this product is very intelligently designed to be user-friendly in actual use. The initial set-up is done with buttons on the back. Then, once the unit is mounted by snapping it onto the mounting bracket on the handlebars or handlebar stem, all operation is done by simply tapping the lower part of the unit. This is in contrast to another popular brand that has 4 unlabelled buttons which users are somehow supposed to memorize in order to operate it while they are riding along. Specifically, tapping the unit scrolls through the functions of clock, elapsed time, distance, total distance, average speed, and maximum speed. Current speed is always shown, and all are shown in large, clear letters. Pressing down on the bottom of the unit for a few seconds re-sets everything other than clock and total distance. I have not yet had an opportunity to verify the accuracy of the unit, but like all other reputable bike computers, the set-up process involves entering the wheel circumference. A previous CatEye computer that I had for some 15 years was very accurate (and I only bought the new one because the old sensor would not attach to the larger fork of my new bike).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makes biking more fun Purchased in November and set up was very good, easy and straight forward and worked well when it was warm. When it turned cold it became intermittent. I emailed CatEye and complained and they said it was designed to work down to 32oF. Waiting for spring and warmer weather to see if it works accurately. During my testing I did find that when my Polar heart rate monitor got too close to the bike odometer the distance increased even though I was standing still. Two wireless devices that must use too close of a frequency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential info, at a glance I've used other wireless cycling computers, and they're all similar in many ways. I like the Padrone for its larger display, and one-button control (the button is on the back, and the computer serves as a lever to press the button). The stem/bar mount is an interesting departure from the norm, using a plastic nut to draw the toothed strap tight. Easy enough to secure, but probably should be checked, regularly, for any possible lossening. The computer, itself, provides all the usual information (current speed, max speed, average speed, all the "elapsed time" functions, and time of day). The system was easy to configure, using the built-in specs for wheel and tire size, or you can measure your own wheels, and input the data. That may be more accurate, but I don't know. It's easy to remove and replace the computer, so you don't have to leave it installed when stepping away from the bike. There is an auto battery shutoff, after a period of inactivity, to save battery life. The sensor is fairly easy to install, but uses zip ties (!), so make sure you're putting it where you want it, and try to give the back of the computer a clear "view" of the top of the sensor, if possible. The spoke magnet is, also, easily installed, although it seemed a little less robust than some other spoke magnets I've used. It's fine; just not as sturdy, I suppose. Overall, I like the computer, especially the large, easy-to-read display.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, intuitive Much easier to use than my previous Sigma. But it has fewer functions, as well. Just the essentials. Perfect for me. Always a bit off (not in my favor!) on miles ridden compared to GPS on my phone and other riders' computers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to read The Padrone is your basic Cateye cycling computer, but with a display that is bigger and thus easier to read. I'm a fan of the range of Cateye products, and this one is great.

My Cateye Padron will not measure speed,total time or distance when it is below 60 degF. the clock still works. I've changed the batteries and still the same. When it warms up it begins to work. Or when I leave the house it works until it gets cold.

Asked by: jay uu
I know of 2 other bikers with wireless computers AND larger cyglolite batteries, usually mounted close together. The batteries do seem to interfere with the computer, especially when the computer batteries are running low. Might be one of the issues with the receiving unit.

Asked by: bond_db7Rockaway
​According to CatEye, you can purchase an Analog Speed Sensor to go with this unit. This is a wireless bike computer that comes with a bracket, bracket band, rubber pad, nylon ties sensor, sensor bracket, magnet, and the general instructions for the unit.
