what is the correct tire circumferrence measurement for michellin axial carbon to be used with cateye cordless 2? ive ben usin 2096mm as recommended by cateye but my computer doesnt seem to be registering the correct distance travelled.i also tried the "floor rolling method" and arrived at 2110mm but still imnot convinced by he mileage.
sounds about right.....C-40

Don't know why you're not convinced. The range of values that you've stated should be pretty close. The difference between these the two values is less than 1%. I use 2114 for a Conti GP3000 in the 700 x 23 size.

The only other thing that could cause an shortage of mileage is a failure of the transmitter to register each revolution of the wheel, or the receiver might not be getting all of the signals. Wireless units are sensitive to distance. Some won't work if the unit is placed on aero bars, which increase the distance from the transmitter. Be sure that you maounted the transmitter as high as possible on the fork.

If possible, compare mileage with a wired unit.
