The first thing that convinces is the simple assembly with which twist around-Handlebar mount, the bike computer is easily mounted on the handlebars or stem. The speed sensor can be easily attached to the fork with the included cable ties and the magnet to a spoke.

The Easy touchThe operating concept ensures that you can switch through all functions in sequence. All functions means: current speed, average speed, maximum speed, comparison between current speed and average speed, trip distance, total distance and trip time.
General features are the adjustable wheel size, time, automatic start/stop function, and the ability to transfer data to a PC. The Mini PC Free via an input mask on the PC and transfer all settings.
Even a ride in the rain didn't bother the little all-rounder, because it's waterproof up to 3 bar.
Thanks to the large display, good readability and ease of use, the O-Synce Mini PC Free a good companion for everyday standard tours. It is quickly attached and then immediately ready for use. If you park the bike somewhere, it fits in any trouser pocket, where it is not particularly annoying with its 18 grams. However, it is only suitable to a limited extent for active drivers, as there are no corresponding functions such as heart rate and cadence.
