Bontrager Node 2.1 Digital Computer

Get up to, ahem, speed with the next generation of computers. Bontrager's Node 2.1 Digital Computer lets you train smarter with power, speed, cadence and distance on one easy-to-read screen. Heart rate training is a snap with the included transmitter strap, too. It also tells temperature (the air's, not yours, which is probably good), and gives you your altitude and the percentage of the grade that you're climbing. Additional features include auto start, 20 minute time-out sensors and a settable interval timer. Node computers can receive data from 3rd party power devices that are ANT+ compatible like SRM cranks and PowerTap hubs, too.

Unit looks good, and would be perfect if it actually worked. Unit will not "pair" with sensor. LBS couldn't get to work either and reported numerous similar complaints.

Computer resets itself during a ride

By Tom

from Woonsocket, RI

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Unreliable

Best Uses

  • Long Rides

Comments:

I ride 25 mile trips 3 times a week over suburban roads. 2 times in the past year the computer has reset itself and erased all data . The first time I had 500 + miles and the second time 255 miles. The time of day is wrong everything is lost. I have replaced the battery and adjusted the magnet and this still occurs. It is upsetting to lose the data.

    This is an awesome computer. I owned a Nano 1.1 and this is a vast improvement. I have had none of the issues mentioned in the reviews. It keeps track of my interval trainingl program and lets me know the results of the zones I train in which has been a big help in improving my average speed and endurance. For the price it is a bargain.

    I purchased it because I liked all the funtions. Little did I know. That if you want the speed and cadence you have to purchase the Interchange ANT+ Combo sensor. I wanted to us is on another bike. Yes you have to get another Interchange ANT+ Combo sensor for the other bike. This reminds me of car racing. If you want to make a small fortune invest a large one. With all I'm investing in this one for two bikes. I probably could have purchased two Cat Eyes to do all this and cash in my pocket.

    This is an great computer for the money. Not a GPS computer, but it also does not cost $600+. Love how this unit integrates with a duo-trap compatible TREK. Easy to set up and sync. Can customize the split screen, in my case I can see speed, heart rate and cadence all at the same time. Live in Nebraska so altitude and percent grade not a feature I use but I do see the value for those living in terrain. Wish the temperature was displayed on the home screen like my previous Node, but not a deal breaker. The only drawback, if it is one, is the sensor driven data (speed, cadence, HR) will sometimes read zero in the middle of a ride. Seems like it loses signal for a time then comes back to normal. Understanding it is a wireless device, more of an annoyance than anything. Other than that great computer coming with my highest recommendation!

      An incredible computer. I do triathlons and this gadget does it all for me. I've tried others but just would take em back for a refund. This computer leaves me feeling happy after a ride when I expect to find all my data at my finger tips. It's a must-have if you are a stickler about your equipment performing, cuz I'm hard on my equipment physically and expectationally. Give it a try, don't worry about the money.

        I had a Bontrager Trip 4w but wanted cadence and heart rate. Like the screen and the ease or use. The negative has been the sensor. Do not know if it is the magnet or sensor and either does my lbs. It started being real sensitive to where it was in relation to the cadence magent, then on Saturday the cadence function quit. I thought though only 2 months old it could be a battery and so I put in a new one and now both the speed and cadence do not work.
