Had you cut the strap after the first installation? Your shop should be able to order a new mounting strap for you. Ask.

Cateye computers can also mount to the stem. It will get it out of the way of the bars. At least all the cateye computers I have do. Any reason you would want it on the bars? Mine mounts with simple zip ties.. get a few extras and make them longer.http://www.cateye.com/sites/cateye/u...W%20v2_ENG.pdf

the link will give you an example of what I mentioned above.

Mine uses zip ties as well. You can buy longer ones at quite a few places.

Thanks guys. I just cut some slits in the straps and extended it with zip ties.
