Velomann V1.07W

 

The Velomann V1.07 is a great value, easy to use computer, with an uncomplicated display.  The 07 bit is a clue to the number of functions you get and these cover all the basics, unless you are really a slave to the numbers.  You get current speed, average speed, speed comparison (whether your current speed is up or down on your average), maximum speed, trip time, trip distance, two odometers (plus a total), 12/24h clock and two pre-set wheel diameters to enable you to run the unit on two bikes with ease.

The head unit and sensor are fixed to the bike with zip ties and the three-piece magnet stayed in place regardless of the quality of the surface we rode over and worked with all the spokes we tried it with, including bladed spokes.   

 

We were also impressed with the range of the sensor, which worked well wherever we located it on the bike and the sensor and magnet proximity, which needs to be ridiculously precise on some computers, was not at all fussy.

 

Setting up computers can be a bit daunting, typically the text for the instructions is tiny and the sequence of button pressing can be testing, but we managed to get the Velomann  V1.07W up and running quickly.  You just need to know which two buttons to press at the same time to get you started and then it is pretty much intuitive.  And that’s it, you’re ready to go, with no unsightly wires running down the frame.

 

The auto-start function is really handy – no danger of missing any miles and on the move, the display was easy to read, with large numbers and buttons that could be worked even with winter gloves to scroll through the stats.

 

We reckon the Velomann V1.07W gives you everything you need at your fingertips.  Easy to use and great value for money, which includes a three year warranty.
