Cycloputer ? and messenger bag ?

I have a Blackburn Delphi 2.0. I just need to know how to get it to change from its "RT" (ride time) setting to its "TT" (total time) setting. In the RT setting, it only runs when you're moving and I'd like it to run continuously. Didin't see the answer in the instructions. Any help appreciated!

I want to start out using a messenger bag or back pack or something as opposed to going the rack and panniers route SOLELY for aesthetic purposes. I think bikes look better without them...simple as that...lol If I can, I'd like to stay away from that but it's not out of the question if other options don't work out. Right now, I'm eyeballing the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag. Anyone have any experince with these? Like em? Don't like em? Can anyone show me anything else to consider? This is a bit expensive ($85) for a bag but I don't mind paying for something that will last.

Check www.steepandcheap.com. I got mine there for $38 and shipping. They frequently have them on sale. You might have to subscribe to their RSS feed to get notified when they go on sale otherwise its hit and miss checking their website to see whats currently offered. My experience is that the wife liked it so much she stole it from me.

LOL! I'll keep that in mind and keep it away from my girlfriend. I actually saw similar things in the reviews on REI.com...women buying them as diaper bags, even. That's what I wanna hear. Thanks for the info!

I forgot something in the original post. I need a new seat...bad...the seat on my bike now SUCKS if you ride further than...like...a half mile. Any recommendations? I'll be riding about 12-15 miles a day so I need something comfortable. Thanks!

Brooks saddles are popular around here, though I haven't tried one myself. Saddles are a very personal choice, each person's bum is different. Having said that, I love my Specialized Avatar. Check with your LBS and see if you can demo a few different saddles to find the one you like best.

I'll check into the Brooks ones. I thought my bum was gunna bum a ride out of town last night. 15 miles or so by the end of the day on that seat was just way too much for it to handle. It's STILL sore.

Oh...and I got the cycloputer thing fixed. I had to hold some OTHER button to get into some other menu and...well...blah blah blah...I actually figured it out on accident. lol
