PROS - looks great, competitive price, does what i needt it to, easy to install
CONS - none
Would recommend this product, hasnt let me down yet after my 6th ride. Dont be fooled by much cheaper ones, these seem to give bad readings of 70mph on stationary roads, £15 - £20 and a quality name is needed.
In short a great little computer at an excellent price - happy to recommend.
Fitting and setting up are quite simple and to suppliment the paper instructions there is a usefull installation video on the manufacturers website. Both the transmitter unit on the front fork and the computer mount on the handlebars are fixed using rubber bands. Longer term it would make sense to replace these with cable ties. The manufacturer quotes battery life as approx 1 year based upon 1 hours cycling per day, which seems quite reasonable. The product requires two button cell batteries.
I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone wanting a simple, reliable, wireless cycle computer.
I was after a reasonably priced device that would offer all the basic functions I required. This was mainly speed, distance and some averages. The BC 1009 fits my requirements perfectly.
It was easy to install. Although it was supplied with rubber o-rings I opted for using slim black cable ties to secure the sensor and the mount. Both the sensor and the mount are designed to take cable ties so the installation was easy and looks nice and tidy.
The device is well made and the screen size is perfect. I think it is very good value for money and regardless of how much you spend you aren't going to get anything that looks better.
The four large buttons are easy to use which is handy if you are wearing gloves.
I've also uploaded a video to YouTube showing how easy it is to configure this device. The video is called "Setup A Sigma BC 1009 Cycle Computer" and is available on my MattHawkinsUK channel.
The manual is available from the main Sigma Sport website.
Overall this device looks good, is good value for money and does exactly what I expect from a cycle computer. If I need any fancy data I will just use my phone, GPS and Google Tracks!
Installation was straightforward when following the supplied instructions. It's important to get the sensor matching the wheel magnet and close by (under 5mm). For my bike that meant mounting lower than expected. All it's doing is getting a pulse when the wheel passes, so it doesn't matter that it's halfway down the fork. It was a little confusing selecting my wheel size, but once figured out no problem and won't need doing again. It seems to work well, starting when I move off and stopping when I stop. The buttons are a little tricky when on the move, but all cycle computers would have the same issues. Removing it from the bike is no problem, and it's light weight.
A couple of points that lose that 5th star for me: No details on the upload to PC (read the Sigma website to find out it's more hardware and software); It's always on, when I expected to be able to turn it off, although it does just show the time. The battery is suposed to last 2 years.

I'm not sure if the product is useless, or if i'm useless. I'm sitting on the fence. I never got it to work.Published 17 months ago by Matt
Great little computer. Replacement for an old basic cycle computer, as I wanted a little extra functionality. Easy to mount, view and change between modes.Published on 26 Jun. 2014 by Rob
We bought 2 of these as Christmas presents and they went down really well. What a pity this model now seems to have been superseded.Published on 8 Jun. 2014 by Alan Fletcher
