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.

Oh, one last thing. You may need to calibrate the computer by adjusting the computers setting. To do this switch the computer over to the odometer setting. 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.

Good luck!

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!

You have probably forgotten all about this post, but it sure did help me.
We bought two of these Cateye Micro CC-6000 units 10 to 12 years ago, and they have worked perfectly.
My wife's unit stopped displaying anything just recently, so I changed the battery, but still nothing.
I decided, since the next step is to throw it away and refit the bike with something new, I would take it apart, and see if I could se any reason for the fault.

Wow, what a really nice piece of design, mechanically and obviously electrically too, totally water proof, spotless in the inside after so many years.
Nothing obvious, so I put it all back together, and amazingly, some glimmer of hope, some hieroglyphics displayed for a few seconds...
Press all three buttons simultaneously, and bingo, it is back and working perfectly.

So, thank you for your tip, above. I do have the original instruction book.
This tip was buried at the bottom of page 8, under ALL CLEAR.
I was anxious not to do, this, so as not to loose my wife's ride statistics, especially her 900km plus total.
So I did not speed read the last line.

To complicate matters, page 9 explains how to replace the battery, but there is no mention of the need to do an ALL CLEAR.

cateye micro cc-6000

I purchased my Cateyemicro Cyclocomputer CC-6000 probably 35 years ago and it has remained unused for perhaps 30 years. I recently put in a new battery, reset the device, but the old lcd display is only partially showing, with some critical lines not readable. In light of the improved technology, I don't think I will spend any more time trying to repair this old technology (although that is killing me!).

On a brighter note, our 35-year old bikes are looking pretty good (Lotus Unique circa 1982 paid $425, Raleigh circa 1984 paid around $300), both with original gear but with new tires. My wife just bought a new BMC for $3.5k, but I think I can kick her ass with my old Lotus! All I need is a new computer, perhaps $100!

How about $17 if wired and only basic functions are adequate: CatEye Velo 8 Wired Cycle Computer

Or $50 for wireless and a few more functions: CatEye Micro MC100W Wireless Bike Computer

Found two closed ebay auctions, original cc-6000's sold for $35 and $11 in box, plus shipping. I noticed the new ones don't have cadence.

This Cat Eye does and it's $35 brand new.

CatEye Astrale 8 Bike Computer

It has a rear wheel pickup for speed and distance so it's ideal for indoor trainer use as well as regular outdoor riding.
