Find the circumference of the tire (measure the radius and multiply by 2 PI or 6.28) and convert it to millimeters--thats the number you put into the computer. I think you should get about 2154 mm depending on your tire inflation, but that doesnt make that much difference.

My bike has a 29" wheel. The manual only goes to 28" wheel to set the computer. What do I do?

Set it to 28, the error will be only 5.4 percent , it doesn't really matter.
For every one revolution of the wheel the computer will think the bike has travelled 5.4% less distance than it actually has travelled so it will under read distance and speed.

The wheel size chart in the instruction manual does not include a tyre size of 700 x 54c (29 x 2.1) so I can't set it. Can you advise the setting requied?

It's in the manual. Measure the wheel size and enter it manually.

There's a picture of how to determine the circumference by rolling the wheel one revolution and measuring it. Be as accurate as you can (to the mm).

• Press MODE to change to BIKE 1.

• Press SET briefly and the first digit flashes.

• Set the value by pressing RESET, change to the next digit by pressing MODE.

26 inch wheel becomes 29 inches when you add on tyre depth ( 1.5 * 2 )

Load indicator and odometer and spedometer just quit working. Bike is ancient-circa 1988-but otherwise works well.

Same here. Can't find the part online. Local Schwinn dealer said they haven't made that part in at least 10 years. I put on a regular bicycle Cateye odometer. At least I have a measure, although it does feel like it agrees with the Schwinn odometer, even when I set the wheel size to just 100 cm I think it is still ~20% high.

Need instructions for 12 function cycle computer SW500NM

The number the computer gives you in the initial reset is a 4 digit number (the one mine gave me was 2124) with the last digit flashing. Since I had a 26" tire, I had no clue what I was supposed to enter. I eventually googled a page that gave me the answer. The actual size of my tire is 26x1.90. Go to:

According to this page, our Schwinn 12 function computer falls in column "F" and the 4 digit number I would use to replace the 2124 number computer initially gave me (with the "4" flashing) would be 2055. This number represents my bikes actual tire size in the corresponding column. I had tried 2045, since it was the closest number the chart in the owner's book gave, but the speeds and distance computed didn't seem like it reflected much accuracy.

However, doing the math by comparison of 26x1.75 and 26x2 sizes, I find the 2055 number to be exactly the right number for my size tire (26x1.90) as listed in group F. I guess if you have a metric sewing measuring tape, you could measure the circumference of your tire and come close to the desired number, since that is what it is supposed to represent.

Since the manual that came with the computer can be confusing, I recommend going to that page if your tire size is not represented in the chart Schwinn provided with the computer. There is also a lot of useful information about bicycle tires in the other pages of the link I provided, too. Good luck.

Lost my instruction booklet and need to reset the settings

Look on the bike manufactures website, often times they will offer owners manuals and other support for free.
