Name that computer!

About a month ago I bought a mtn bike off ebay that had a computer on it. I've tried fiddling with it to figure out how the computer works, but so far have had no luck.



The logo on the top says "Advent" on it. It seems to have a bunch of functions, but I can't seem to figure out how to reset the thing. Anyone know what make/model this computer is, so I can go get and download the users manual for it?

Ever heard of googling? (search: +advent +cycle +computer)

The make of your computer? I'm going to go out on a limb and say... Advent...

Advent was a brand name for a line of generic bike components marketed back in the 90's. to reset wheel size pull the battery out for a moment and put it back in , t will prompt you either for wheel diameter or "roll out" Usually holding both buttons down at once will access the clock and timer reset. resetting the odometer is usually by holding the right button down.

If I had found it on google, I wouldn't be posting here. The computer has a number of modes(odo, distance, time, avg speed, etc) none of which seem to be reset by hitting any combination of the two buttons on the thing. That's why I'm trying to dig up a manual. Sheldon Brown shows how to calibrate it, but the thing's already calibrated. I'm trying to use it.

this might be a dumb question, but if you take the computer off it's mounting bracket, is there a model # on the back?
