Flightdeck manual?(9 posts)

Flightdeck manual?TSlothrop
Feb 9, 2002 9:47 AM
I don't have a manual for my Flighdeck, I've managed to get it set up properly but am a little puzzled with regards to exactly what functions it has. Is it possible to find an online manual? or what are my chances of getting one from shimano, or should I just speak very nicely to my LBS?
thanks, john
Speak nicely to your LBS, and buy something! nmMB1

someone on rec.bicycles.tech asked this ... I thought I remembered him saying he found it on Shimano Europe's site, BUT it's not there - I just checked.
if there's anything in particular you want to know, you could ask me - I've got the manual.

thanks for the offer of help. After posting my question, I had a look around, a managed to discover about the two different display options, which solved my biggest query. The only other one I have now is regarding the selction of wheel size. I thought I'd entered the actual circumfrence of my wheel, however, according to someone else, the Flightdeck only lets you enter either 19, 21, 23 tyre sizes. Which I though was odd. so either I've messed up my wheel size, or shimano have changed the setup. (this guys comments were from 1998). Appreciate the help. john

If you have fax capability, Shimano will fax you the appropriate 8 pages in a language of your choice for a telephone call.
