cateye question....koala
Jun 24, 2003 6:02 AM
My friend just picked up a new Lemond and he has a new computer. While riding I noticed he was clocking a full mile per hour faster at 18. He said he checked his against a mile marker and it was dead on. Is 5 to 6 percent variation normal? My clock seems to be losing some time slowly as well. I assumed a battery would go dead fast. Do I just need a new battery?

Try a new battery. My wife's specialized comp. started getting weird readings, sometimes a couple of miles off of mine. Replaced the battery and it's fine now.

Your friend might also want to check his wheel size in the computer to make sure he/the LBS set it up right.
