I just bought a Schwinn computer from Walmart today. Cost me $11.xx. It was easy to install imho. I first mounted the receiver on the fork loosely and then the magnet. Flipped the bike upside down, attached the computer to its stand, and spun the front wheel till I got a reading on the computer. Adjusted the placement of the magnet and receiver, then ran the wire up on the inside of the fork, and wrapped around the front brake cable. Check to see if there was any binding with full turns. Once everything was good, I mounted the bracket to my handle bar, tightened up all the zipties and cut off the excess, and took the bike out on a test run to see if everything was working properly. I needed to adjust the magnet placement to get a solid reading. All in all, I'm satisfied with the product and glad I didn't spend twice, or three times what it had cost.
