Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

FlightDeck Help

I misplaced my Flightdeck manual and just had to replace the battery. I was able to mostly figure out how to set it except I do not know what "INT" is for. It toggles between "111" and "222". Is it for two different tire settings? If anyone knows or could check their manual, I would appreciate it.

Also, I could not find a PDF version of the manual (like most manufacturers have). Is anyone aware if it exists and where I could find it?

Thanks

The "111" tells the computer you are using a standard derailer. The "222" is for a type of derailer I have never heard of.

"222" is for Rapid-Rise. Essentially this is a rear derailleur that moves in the opposite direction of traditional derailleurs. The tension is reversed... among other things. Shimano started marketting this several years ago claiming it was "more intuitive" and easier to downshift under load. The newly revamped XTR group is only offered with Rapid-Rise.

I for one am fairly resistant to switching over to it since I usually have no problem downshifting my rear even under load and at this point, it would be less intuitive to me so the results would just be a lot more mis-shifting.
