Can anyone tell me if they have had good or bad experiences with the wireless set up on the Flight Deck Computer? I currently have the wired setup and have been considering converting. Thanks.

I've purchased them at Excel, Cambria and LBSs. There are good deals occasionally, just look around.

The batteries for the wireless pickup are LR44 (or A76); they are very common and easy to replace.

I love mine! I have 1 bike wireless and one with wires. really no difference in performance, but it so much nicer looking! Frequent (2-3or4)battery changes in one year though.

Anyone want to buy a Flight Deck?tarwheel

I've got a Flight Deck 6501 model (wired, w/ two control buttons) that I would sell for a reasonable price. Battery was replaced a few months ago. The only problem is the strap that holds the sensor was cut when it was removed from my old frame. It could be taped to a fork and would work fine, or you could buy a new sensor/harness (possibly the wireless version). Includes two sensors/harnesses (both with cut straps) and owner's manual. Contact me if interested. (jetmather@msn.com)
You don't need to cut the strap.Spoke Wrench

If you stick an itty bitty screwdriver into it, you can release the little finger that holds the sensor strap in place.
Ya, it hurts to see that.the other Tim

Everybody thinks they have to cut it off. Even some shops do it.
