    New computer...needing assistance

    I just got a Cateye Enduro 8 and am trying to set the thing. I have 26" tires and the measurements on the computer are metric it looks like. The directions are poorly written. It was pre-set on 241 or something and in my checking it out, i changed the factory pre-set. Does anyone know what the number should be for a 26" tire? Thanks in advance.

    Roll out calibration is most accurate.

    My pleasure. Bookmark his site, it is a gold mine. We lost a treasure when we lost Sheldon Brown. I've been using his wisdom for well over 20 years.

    You know you could just measure it? The unit the Enduro 8 uses is centimeters so roll down a tape on the floor, align your tube valve downwards with the beggining of the tape, go forward one full wheel rotation, mark the length and enter that value in your computer.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    The Sheldon Brown link I posted above explains that, and other methods too. Check it out, great information!
