    26" vs 29" calibration

    I have a Bontrager Trip 3 computer for tracking mileage. I had it on a 26" bike but have moved it to my fat bike. I set it for 29" wheels to compensate for increased diameter of the 4.7" tire. Any way to check how accurate it is reading?

    Do a rollout and reset the calibration.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    the presets in computers are notoriously garbage.

    RTFM. we don't know every detail of every computer ever made on this forum. This procedure is described in every computer's manual I've ever looked at. Even the cheapest $20 computers.

    You can do your own reading.

    It is not on the paperwork it came with. MUCH more detail (inluding actual words) on the link you sent.
    Thanks
