    bryton or cateye

    hi fellow riders,
    Looking for a cycling computer with cadence functions.

    Narrow down to bryton rider 10 & cateye strada wireless digital. on a budget so no garmin on the list.
    currently using cateye strada slim, nice device but without cadence.

    do any had experience with bryton? which one better?
    options is much appreciate. tq

    Are you sure the Cateye Strada Slim has a cadence option? I know the Strada Digital Wireless does, but that's a different animal.

    I'd avoid the Cateye. The one you're thinking of is the one I started with and it was trash. Several of them reset and eventually failed on me. I eventually got fed up and bought an expensive Garmin.

    I haven't heard much of anything bad about recent Bryton products, quite the opposite. I know several that switched from Garmin to Bryton for the more expensive units.

    I'd go Bryton.

    i see, initially looking at the wireless digital, but then bryton seem to be quite attractive. so might very considering the bryton, and bryton customers service also very responsive. Nice to heard your opinion bro, thanks.

    How about a used Garmin? The interwebs are full of "I had to upgrade to the newest computer" slightly used Garmins. I'll admit... I've got a perfect 500 sitting in a draw... 'cause I had to have a Wahoo Bolt.

    I have owned several Cateye's and they are my go-to brand. I am using Cateye Stealth 50 on all my bikes. Works great.

    I have a Bryton Rider 330. They have improved substantially over the years and can do most of the things that a Garmin and Wahoo can do to the point where its quite comparable to something like a Garmin 500. The thing is you can get the whole thing, box and dice with heart rate monitor and cadence sensor for under $200. It measures pretty well everything from speed, to cadence, even to the gradient of the hill your climbing along with the more important things like speed, power and heart rate. It even has basic maps you can set up and the interface is quite functional.

    Its a great little computer if you want a small computer that can do all the vital stuff. I'm really surprised how far Bryton has come.
