I was going down "the wonderwood" today (a locally popular bridge for riding... pretty steep, and long... it is close to the ocean so the winds can really turn it into quite a ride) I had a nice tailwind and was going down it at 37, 38, then 39, then POP... POP, POP!!! I thought to myself "This is it! I am dead!" Thank god I was able to quickly and safely slow down. (keep in mind the fastest i have ever gone before was 38 on this same bridge... weighing in at 265 takes a little time to slow down... think of a train..) I thought I had survived a double blow out... but then after taking a moment to pull myself together, I realized that my tires were fine... but my computer was gone! That 140 dollar little bastard came off!!! I guess that the first pop was it hitting my from tire on the way down and that threw it forward, then both of my tires ran it over (700X23 tires on a Giant TCR2)
I always thought that the computer did not connect very tightly... well now it is even worse, so i put a wire tie around it to hold it on. One thing, the dam thing did survive a 40mph fall, then being crushed by 265 pounds!
*Has anyone experienced this problem with this computer?
*Is Cat Eye going to help me out here, or are they going to say it was user error? (the computer itself pretty much needs to be replaced... the fall did make the mount even worse
*When I get up to those speeds I am off the saddle, with my hands on the drops, as low as I can be... over about 35 or so the bike really starts to shake. My wheels are true... Is it just my weight, or should is something maybe out of wack on the bike? I am sure this shaking helped the computer to wiggle off... it is pretty bad.
