    Bike Computer Issue (Cateye Astale 8)

    I have the dumbest problem. I was pushing the mode button down on my computer to set the clock, and all of a sudden it doesn't work, it is completely caved in and won't pop back up. Anyone know how to fix this or get the cover off the top so I can try and get the button back?

    Alright, got that problem fixed by poking a whole thru the button cover, will this thing short out now if rain gets into it?

    Also does anyone know if it matters if the magnetic sensor is on the front or rear tire?

    The Astrale 8 is made for the rear wheel but I don't think it would matter if you split the wires to the cadence and speed sensors and used it on the front.

    Try putting a bit of silicone caulk or sealant on the hole to be safe. I've had mine on in a long down pour and it was fine so either its sealed up real tight or it doesn't matter. lol.
