Flight Deck Question(3 posts)

Flight Deck QuestionLI Biker

My old Flight Deck was replaced under the warrarnty with a new 6501. I had a 6500 previously. There are a few differences and no new manual was provided.
Is the followinga defect in my unit or just a flaw in all of them?
In the cadence (on top) and current speed (below) mode, when I shift the gear sizes are not shown. Nothing changes. That is not the case in any other mode.

I'm not sure, but I believe that is a product improvement. Based on other things I've read, a lot of riders complained that everytime you shifted you got a reading of the gear (which you probably already knew by looking at the wheel display) for a few seconds, so they took it out.

I don't know if it's a defect/flaw or just the way the circuit works but my unit, like yours, does not show the gears when Cadence is the primary mode.
