    Cateye Strada

    Does anyone know how to open the battery box on the main unit? I don't seem to have the touch. It looks like the cover needs to be turned, but I haven't been able to do it.

    On the Cateye Strata subject - does anybody know how to set the time? The only way I was able to do it when it was new was to default the unit at precisely 1:00. I'd prefer not to lose my odometer reading to account for the end of daylight savings time.

    I have two Cateye products and both have a battery cover that has a slot to insert a coin for twisting off (rightie-tightie, lefty loosey). But I suppose that would be too obvious or you wouldn't have posted the question...

    Ooh, look! Instructions for a Cateye product with actual words on it! And one or two diagrams that aren't impossibly confusing!

    The cover is just stuck.
    Do a quick turn with something that fits Good in the slot.

    If I'm looking at the illustration correctly (at the bottom of the page of 10 Wheels' link), it looks like the cover pops off by pressing down on the edge, no? I agree that it's stuck because it should just be some sort of friction fit.

    Looks like you just need to push down on the edge of the top.

    Thanks! That's the info I needed. My instructions didn't have that graphic.
