As with many cyclists, be it mountain bikers, BMX riders or road cyclists we want to take the time to make sure we get the best products. Where cycling is a passion for many we often invest a lot of our time and money into the hobby. And as we know, getting the right products can give us that small competitive advantage either over our actual competitors, our mates or even just beating our own goals. But because we do invest so much in our bikes and our equipment it’s really important to buy from recognised retailers, in our most recent search, we found many products available online for ridiculously (almost laughable) prices. They were just so low that alarm bells should instantly be ringing. That’s why we only recommend buying from the retailers that you really know and trust, names like Wiggle, Chain Reaction and Evans Cycles are just some of those that we use regularly. With these retailers you know you’re in safe hands and can expect great service, great returns policies and if anything was to go wrong great customer service under a warranty claim.

But onto the reason you’re here today, let’s delve into some of the details of Bontrager RIDEtime Elite Cycling Computer to help you understand a bit more about where it sits in the market against some of the many alternatives that are available out there. We’re very aware that by buying our cycling stuff online that we’ve missed out on the opportunity to actually see and test the product first. This is where reviews come in to their own, as it gives us that chance to hear from other like-minded cyclists about how good or bad a product is.

As you would expect, our first and top piece of advice before buying, is to read lots and lots of Bontrager RIDEtime Elite Cycling Computer reviews. With a review score of 8.1 out of 10 it’s likely that there will be lots of great detailed reviews to help you. And if you find that actually the reviews are suggesting Bontrager RIDEtime Elite Cycling Computer isn’t right for you then there will be tons and tons of other reviews for other products in the Cycle Computers category. In fact we’ve got 6 products reviewed in this category alone.

Something that makes it particularly challenging is the vast range of choice, as mentioned above there are 6 products in the Cycle Computers category. There are also 168 products from the brand Bontrager. And then getting into the specifics even more there are 2 products from Bontrager in the category “Cycle Computers”.

  • Price Comparison

So let’s take a look at the second most important decision making tool we can use when shopping online, price. Whether your goal is to just get the cheapest Cycle Computers available, or to get the best quality at a reasonable price, there’s always going to be a need to do your research on price.
