I have an old sigma sport BC-800, and for some reason, every time I try to reset my time/speed/max speed/average speed yadda yadda, everything goes except for Distance travelled and Clock. When riding, these two functions don't record anything, it's like they're just frozed there. Any suggestions?

I'm pretty good with things that have chains and sprockets, not so good with silicon chips. It sounds to me like you have a bad silicon chip connection. Options are to either live with it or buy yourself a new computer. Don't you wish every problem in life could be solved for $30.00.

Ditch it, and go computerless. I did and I'm glad.
Have you replaced the battery???? (nm)Dave Hickey

Your computer is fine. The clock is just that, a clock, you set it when you reset the whole computer. The distance feature you mention is like an odometer. It can be reset by reseting the whole computer. They're not the most important features anyhow. Hope this helps!
