CatEye does it right
Here's a bit of back story from the CatEye website at https://www.cateye.com/en/:
CatEye is the leading manufacturer of cycle computers, lights and reflectors to cyclists in the world. Founded in 1954 in Osaka, Japan, CatEye has always been a leader in innovation and technology.
In 1964, CatEye created the first flashing lamp for bicycles. CatEye went on to create the very first bicycle head lamp using white LEDs in 2001. The company is truly a world leader in lens and reflector technology.
CatEye's first cycle computer was released in 1981. Now we offer a full range of computers to meet the demands of cyclists around the globe. Always at the cutting edge of technology, we were among the first companies to integrate altimeter, heart rate, and cadence technology into cycle computers.
From it's head office in Osaka, Japan, CatEye manages two factories in Japan and one in China, and is an ISO approved manufacturer. On the leading edge of technology, CatEye continues to innovate and lead the industry in bicycle electronics, and is committed to safety and comfort in cycling.
These little jewels are light, simple, and get it done. The mounting bracket on the Litespeed Strada wasn't threading properly, so I sent an email to CatEye customer service. I had a response email in less than a day, letting me know a replacement bracket was on the way. A couple of days later, the replacement was in my mailbox.
Here's a shout-out to CatEye. Great products, great prices and class act customer service.
