" Brought these as replacement training wheel from my Ultegra 6800's. I'm a heavy rider at 90kgs and do 250km+ a week training. Had them for about a month now and they are solid and roll very fast. I can feel the extra rim weight at times, but once up to speed they are fine. They run a 25mm tire really well with the GP4000's having a nice shape on them. Happy with my purchase and they can be de-stickered easily if you want that look. "
Pros: Attractive, Durable, Great Value, Rugged
Cons: heavy

" These pads stop OK, but what annoys me is the shape of them. They come with a curved face that is supposed to wipe mud/rain of the rim jsut before it contacts. All this manages to do is stop you from adjusting the amount of lever movement before the pad makes contact. I like to have my brakes operating after about a cm of brake lever movement...the profile stops this and causes the first part of your braking to be spongy. "
Cons: Low Quality, Poor Fit

Will stop slow leaks and punctures. This Solution converts standard (non tubeless) tyres to tubeless. Also works with any tubeless tyre or tubular tyres. When properly used, it will seal up to 1/4 inch punctures.

" I brought these as a backup plan in case my Stan Rim tape plan didn't work. The stans tape is holding air well at the moment on my PXC-2 Giant rims, but I plan to use these later on as these are a much more safer long term solution. Great construction and look really tough, value is high quality. "

" For the price these shorts are great for my training rides. I wouldn't wear them for a hundred km session, but for short rides the chamios is comfortable. I'm an XL in most gear, so was a little disapointed with the slightly tight fit around the crotch...it was only slightly, but I'll be ordering XXL next time, just for the extra room. "

" I have used Cateye in the past and found them to be well made and reliable. This Computer had the best combo of Features, Quality and Price with a brand I trusted to work.
The HR monitor works from many metres away. My mates Polar has to be within 60 cm to work, but I impressed him the other day by walking to order my coffee at the counter and it still working and picking up a signal.
The one piece cadence/speed sensor is very clever and easliy adjustable. Out of the box set up was a breeze. "

Are you able to download your data from the Cateye V3 to your PC? thanks.

Best answer
Having recently got this computer, I can tell you that no, it does not hook into your PC. It does however store your training data in files on the unit for viewing later on...up to 99 sessions I think.
