    I have set all my computer up easily but when it comes to age and weight, I am not sure if the weight is in POUNDS. Can anyone help me on this. I have a fat burned programme aswell but so far it has not registered any fat burnt yet, does anyone know why. Could it be to do with the age and weight function.

    I would be grateful if someone is able to tell me how to set the weight - thanks so much

    Bell Wireless Bike Computer – Generic Manual

    BATTERY Installation
    Make sure to write down the Odometer value before changing the battery so you can later re-enter it in the odometer. Install the new battery with the positive ( ) pole facing outward. After changing the battery
    all settings are erased.

    Clamp the magnet to a spoke on the right side of the front wheel. Make sure that the magnet is facing the outside of the wheel so that the flat side of the magnet passes in front of the sensor.

    Attach the speedometer sensor to the right fork leg using the two cable ties provided. Make sure the metal side of the sensor is facing the wheel. Do not fully secure the cable ties yet, as the sensor location might require further
    adjustments.

    Adjust the sensor and magnet location so that clearance between the two is no greater than 1/5" (5mm). Magnet should pass by the tip of the sensor. Remove the adhesive tape shield on the back of the bracket and position the bracket on the handlebar of the bicycle. Fasten the O-ring around the top edge of the bracket and wrap around the underside of the handlebar and attach to the bottom edge of the bracket. Insert the
    computer into the mounting bracket and twist to the right to lock into place.

    Programming the Computer
    Wheel Size Input
    The flashing number "2124" is the pre-set value. To determine the correct wheel factor, refer to the table shown. Set the wheel factor by pressing the Right button until the correct setting appears. Press the Left button to lock in
    the correct digit. Repeat until all four digits are entered.
    Road Bike
    20" 1596
    22" 1759
    24" 1916
    26" 2073
    27"/ 700c 2124

    Mountain Bike
    24" 1888
    26" 2045
    27" 2155
    28" 2237



    Quickstart
    Now that the speedometer is configured, insert the computer into the bracket and twist to the right to lock in place. To check for proper installation, spin the front wheel. The speed tendency icon in the upper left corner of the screen should be turning as the computer starts recording data
    (Refer to Troubleshooting in case of problems).

    Current Speed (SPD)
    Current Speed represents instantaneous speed. It is displayed on the upper screen. The speedometer measures speeds up to 200Km/hr or 125 M/hr. If no keys are touched and no movement sensed from the bicycle
    for five minutes, the speedometer will go into sleep mode. Press any key to reactivate.

    Calories Burned (CAL)
    Calories Burned is displayed on the upper screen. It represents the accumulated number of calories burned while riding. The calorie count on the screen will start over once 999 calories have been burned. Calories burned can be reset at any time by pressing and holding the Left button
    when "CAL" is displayed on the screen.

    Speed Comparison ( or -)
    " " or "-" appears next to the current speed. This function shows the positive or negative acceleration of your current speed as compared with your average since the last re-set to zero.

    NOTE: Resetting Trip Distance will automatically reset Trip Timer and Average Speed.

    Trip Timer (TM)
    Trip Timer is displayed on the lower screen. It is activated automatically with the bicycle in motion: it is on when you ride and off when you stop. To display the timer, press the Right button until "TM" appears. The timer records the total cycling time for each trip. Trip Timer can be reset at
    any time by pressing and holding the Left button for two seconds when the "TM" is displayed on the screen. Note: Resetting Trip Timer will automatically reset Trip Distance and Average Speed.

    Odometer (ODO)
    Odometer is displayed on the lower screen. Just like a car, it measures distance ridden over time. After changing the computer battery, ODO will be set to zero. The odometer can be reset to the previous value by pressing and holding the Left button for two seconds when "ODO" is displayed
    on the screen.

    Average Speed (AVS)
    Average Speed is displayed on the lower screen. It represents the average speed while riding. Press the Right button until the "AVG" appears. The average speed is measured over the total cycling time for each trip. A
    figure can be expressed in Km/hr or M/hr. The average speed can be reset at any time by pressing and holding the Right button for two seconds when the AVS is displayed on the screen.
    NOTE: Resetting the Average Speed will automatically reset the Trip Timer and Trip Distance.

    Maximum Speed (MXS)
    Press the Right button until the "MXS" appears. This
    display will show the maximum speed during your ride.
    Maximum Speed can be reset at any time by pressing
    and holding the Left button for two seconds when the
    MXS is displayed on the screen.

The F12-F20 series are pretty much the same. The wireless instructions work but the buttons are different. The wired models have a left/right button/rocker selector at the bottom and it may look like a one piece plastic button but it's not. Pressing both sides for a few seconds will reset the computer. The computer will show the default '2124' tire size, with the '4' blinking. Pressing the right button will change the number. Press the left button when finished and the number to the left will blink and you set that one and so forth. After the tire size/number is set, the KM will blink and you can change that to MPH with the right button and press the left button when finished and the clock setting will come up. You can choose 24 hr (military time) or 12 hour (no am/pm option) and the numbers/time will show the hours first then minutes.

    Ooops. To clarify the clock settings, press the left button until you see the 24h, then you can change it to 12h and the clock can then be set.

    The tire numbers are the same as the wireless,..forgot to mention that.

I lost the instructions for installing me Bell trip[leback three bike trunk rack . Spring is comng and I need to instal my bike rack.


I contacted Bell Sports and complained about the lack of downloadable manuals. They said they are in the process of developing the website which will provide them.

http://www.bellbikestuff.com/

It has some basic stuff about helmets and tire changing right now. Stay tuned and check it once in a while.

In the meantime, they sent me the manual for the Doubleback/Tripleback Car Rack in English since that was the one I used as an example.

If you post your email to this solution I will be notified and will send it to you.

Lost my manual and am trying to reset my bell f20.


Somewhere in the configuration program is the option; if you can't find it it in the instructions, that's probably because it doesn't have this option, in which case, you should try and trade the bike comp. off for an American-built one. (guaranteed to have MPH)
