cateye micro CC-6000
I've been searching the internet for cateye micro CC-6000 bike computer instructions but it only gives me the new wireless stuff and the downloadable instruction pages dont show up on my computer. can someone tell me how do install this thing.
can someone atleast tell me what the second thing is for? I know that one is for the magnet that goes in the spokes.
I'll give it a shot. The computer comes with a mounting bracket for the computer on the handlebar and two sensors. The sensor furthest from the computer mounting bracket attaches to the left chain stay and works in conjunction with a magnet attached to the spokes of the rear wheel. Make sure that the magnet and sensor are close enough to each other for the sensor to register ever time the back wheel rotates, but not so close that the two rub together when the wheel flexes. The other sensor measures your cadence and it also attaches to the left chain stay and works with a magnet attached to the inside of your left crank. Adjust the placement until your cadence registers on the computer when you turn the cranks. Now attach the mounting bracket and the computer to your handlebars. From here you should be good to go.

Then, simultaneously, push the two buttons on the front of the computer and the button on the back. The screen should change and you will see a number. The number is the circumference of your tire in centimeters. Adjust as needed and then save the value.
I still own and operate a cc-6000 (bought it in '88). By pressing all three buttons simultaneously, the unit is cleared and mile/h is displayed. Press 'Start Stop' button to alternate between km/h and mile/h. Once you've made that selection, press 'mode'. Now you should see 216, the approximate circumference of your tire in cm. To determine a relatively accurate measurement of the circumference of your tire, measure the distance your tire travels with three tire rotations (more is better if you have a long enough tape measure). Divide this measurement by 3 and multiply by 2.54 if you measured in inches. This should give a number close to 216 as displayed. To change the number in the display, press 'Start Stop'. The number can only be increased, but by pressing and holding 'Start Stop' the number will increase rapidly and start over. Once you have the proper value, press 'Mode' and you're set to go.
will not only give you a downloadable copy of the manual for the cc-6000, but several other models as well.
I have a cc-6000 which has moved from bike to bike since I purchased it secondhand in 1989 - I have manual somewhere, but after googling it, I found this and have copy on the PC now.
I was just going through some older cycling stuff I had in a shoebox, and I found the Cateye CC-6000 that came off of my Great-Uncle's Erickson road bike, hand built by Glen Erickson at R and E cycles in Seattle. I put in a new battery that I happened to have in a spare set of cycling lights, and it turned right on. Thanks to your discussion, it is now programmed and ready to run! Now I just need to find the wheel magnets, and it will be reading speed and mileage like it did just over 25 years ago! Thanks!
