Hey, a genuine WRITTEN instruction sheet- cool! I`ve had two different models of cheapo basic Cateye computers, and in both cases the comps worked fine, but the instructions sucked. They use some kind of omnilingual cartoon pictures instead of the PITA but less annoying "50 languages all printed on a single giant folded sheet" method. The Carteye cartoons are like trying to play charades. Next time maybe I`ll try that Schwinn/Wally deal.

I got the Schwinn and it is different than the one posted. I guess things change with time. For one, the instructions are not as clear, yet still doable. Also, the rubber shims are no longer included. It says they're to hold the pod securely, but the nylon ties do a good job IF after you tighten them down you grab some pliers and really get after 'em.

my mounting bracket rotates around the bars a little so I just nudge it from time to time to keep it facing up just the way I like it.

I don't remember if we posted the instructions in this thred - if not I have them at work and can post them as JPGs
