Has anyone fitted one. I need to retro fit the ergo brain to my Chorus 10 equiped bike, and after a quick glance at the litrature think it looks a bit of a nightmare.

I also got the impression that the computer can work out your cadence from speed/gear ratio - without the need for the cadence sensor being fitted!!!

Have I got the wrong end of the stick here, or should I jst spend a few more £££/$$$ to get it fitted for me.

Check out www.campyonly.com. They have an extensive review of the Ergobrain, with detailed installation information and comments about things that Campy omitted from their installation instructions.

It is a pain to fit but relativly straitforward, the instructions are pretty good. The pain is having to undo you grip tape and take off the levers. You need the cadence sensor to get cadence (unlike the Shimano flitedeck) which is well worth installing as it gives you your actual cadence and not an estimation.

It is a good computer, I've had mine for about 5 months now, it took 2 hours to fit and I'm not particularly technical.

Happy riding

Like Chris, I took about 2hrs. It's not that difficult really, just time consuming, especially if you are the neat type like me. Do check out campyonly like DMoore says. The site gives some pretty good advice. Things to watch out for are the two plastic semi-circular pieces which you are supposed to fit under your ergo levers. I overlooked them completely and left them out, although everything works perfectly without them.
