Question about Cycling
I have a 1990s cat eye micro cc 6000, which I have not used for over 12yrs. I replaced the lithium battery and the display works fine on its initial settings. When I cycle, the display does not give any readings for speed, distance, etc, and only the timer works. I have checked the sensors and magnets and they are positioned in accordance with the instruction manual. Do the sensors or magnets have a maximum lifespan? I can't think what else might be causing the unit not to function. Andrew

It sounds like you know what's wrong - distance. Take the magnet in your hand and wave it past the cadence sensor to see if THAT works.
As far as why your crankarm and chainstay are too far apart, well, maybe your bottom bracket is too long or something, but it is mostly beyond the scope of anyone who can't see it to judge. Take it to a bike shop and ask them.

Well, it IS wireless so it need ssome good juice and line of site from the sensor to the receiver to work.
Take the unit off the handlbar mount and hold it close to the transmitter while you move the wheel magnet past the sensor.
If it starts to work begin moving the computer farther away toward your handlebar mount and figure out where it dies and why. Some units have distance specs that must be adhered to.
