I cracked 10,000 about three weeks ago, almost up to 11,000. The website reckons about 3 years for a battery, so there must be some riders out there with some big numbers on their odometers...

... and let's have none of this re-programming when you put in a new battery! A new battery = 00000km :)

PS. ok, that was a deliberate brag - I never thought I'd reach 10K OK? Let me have a moment of (p.poor) glory!

My road bike 5946 km Mountain bike 1670 km Triathlon
bike 2471 km

(Total is 11086 km.)

It suprises me how much it is when you add it all up. I
always feel like I don't do as much cycling as I "should".

I need one on my kayak. That's clocked up a few K's over the
last three years.

Good on ya Ritch. It's good to have goals.

I decided way back when that I could get a new road bike
when mine had done 25000km. Surprisingly I actually made it
that far, so I couldn't break a promise.

Apparently my new frame should be good for at least
100,000km so I'll be posting again in about 15 years or so
with pics of the nex tnew bike ;)

<html> <head> </head> <body> Greetings, <br>

I have an antique Cateye CC-7000 and the
battery has been in it, from my records, for over seven
years. In that time it has done, what? I think 28,000 km,
coming up to go around the clock for the third time if the
battery doesn't finally cark it first. I like seeing the
9999.9 go to .0 because it doesn't happen often. I count
down the last .1 km from Ten to Blast Off! when it does it.
The last time, without looking at my records, was mid-2002,
and it's back up to 8600 again now. <br> Regards, <br>

The batteries in my various Cateye Astrales seemed to conk
out after about 3 years/25 000 km.

Btw, does anyone know where in Melbourne they sell the
cheapest CA mounting thingies? I'm sooooooo sick of burning
the coating off those (maybe designed to be?) fragile sensor
wires (yes, you CAN fix them) with a ciggie
lighter/soldering iron/combination of both to get them
working again...

Ooops - looks like this is a competetion! The Cateye Astrale
I bought in Shibuya, Tokyo, in 1923, lasted me 1 000 years/
20 billion kilometres...

p

ps: seriously, does anyone know where you can get reasonably
priced replacement mount+wire bits?
