Power tap question

A question for all the power tap geniuses out there; can a powertap head (2.4 wireless if it matters) "learn" two different hubs at the same time? I have two wheels but only one head and was hoping that I would be able to use it with both. Possible?

It should, though I think you might need to do the "learn" routine (hold start + mode and get into the settings menu) whenever you switch wheels. But, the "find" function (hold start + mode until the screen says "find") may work as well.

I know the "learn" routine will work, I was just hoping there was a way to avoid doing that every time.

I too have two wheels and use one head...

I 're-learn' the head every time I switch. It does not take too long...

Ask Saris if changing the hub code is possible...

Call us at 1-800-783-7257 or (608) 274-6550

Or e-mail us at custsrv@saris.com

They have great customer service....

Post the answer when you get it....

I find the learning annoying and takes too long. If I were you I would write down both HubIDS and then enter in the number using PowerAgent. Or just get another computer for 100 bucks.
