I'm going to be installing a Shimano FlightDeck Head and wireless sensor, the newest configuration available. Are their any do's and Don'ts before I install this.
I have read much about this computer and find alot of pro's and con's
I was using a Avocet 45tt which is excellant, gotta have cadence. But, since I just upgraded to a new Ultimate I don't want to see wires going down the downtube etc. The new bike came with ultegra 6510 STI so I have a button on the left and right hood anyway I have some new bar tape comming with the computer any suggestions,recomendations greatly appreciated

If you're not fluent in Japanese, try to find a language that you think you understand. You'll do fine, this isn't that hard to do.

I have the older levers with both buttons on the right lever, it took a LOONG time to get used to not accidentally hitting the button and turning off the computer, or at least the trip distance function. As far as the cadence goes, the virtual cadence can get annoying when you are soft pedalling or coasting down a hill not pedalling at all and it is telling you that you are pedalling at like 110 rpm or someting. Just my two cents...
