If you have the new version (the 6501) then you program it in when you set-up the computer (it's the second thing you set in the set-up routine).

If you have the old version, then you can't program in the mileage (that was one of the most common gripes which people had with the old design).

I currently have the 6500. Does the 6501 use the same wiring harness as the 6500? That is, if I *lose* this computer, could I just replace it with a 6501 without changing anything else? TIA.

Shimano should have included a roll of toilet paper with each 6500 computer because they are so cr@ppy. If I had a sledge hammer my 6500 would be dust right now.
Amen. It was not well thought out at all (nm)Brian C.
