Specialized Bicycle Speedometer Instructions

Specialized Bicycle Components produces a variety of bicycles and bicycle products, including computerized speedometers. With a touch of a button, these devices provide valuable information such as the time, the miles you've traveled, your speed and the temperature. To get information to display the way you want, and to get accurate estimates for your speedometer and odometer, you must go through an initial program to enter specific setup information.
