Bike computer setup ?..(5 posts)

Bike computer setup ?..dmoller
Feb 18, 2002 6:49 AM
Going through the setup on the new Cateye Enduro 2 yesterday when I got to the part about wheel size setting. The default is 210 cm for a standard 700x23 wheel. I did the rollout measurement a couple weeks ago (Velomax standard wheels on a new Airborne) and came up with 83 inches, which at approx. 2.2 cm per inch would translate into about 182 cm. Am I way off somewhere, or do I need to adjust the setup on the computer down to 182 cm? Thanks

I don't remember the precise conversion factor off of the top of my head, but it's 24.??. If you use that, it will get you close to the 210 default setting.

I think that it is 2.54cm = 1 inch
That makes more sense, thanks*dmoller

Softrider is correct. 1 inch is exactly equal to 2.54 cm.

It looks like you were getting it confused with 2.2 lbs per kg.
