    How do I get my bike computer thing to work?

    I bought a bike and it came with the small computer device for tracking speed but when I ride it doesnt show my speed. What do I do to get it working again? I dont have any instructions with it.

    Change the battery.
    Make sure the wheel magnet is very close to the receiver when is passes by.

    Some companies have user manuals available through their websites. Can you tell/show us what computer you have?

    Did you buy it at a bike shop, or used? If you bought it retail, go have them figure it out and show you.

    You might be better off buying a new one.
