  • Press mode and using the up/down buttons, highlight the option Settings, then press Enter.

  • Select Bike Settings, then press Enter.

  • Using the up/down buttons navigate to highlight Bike 1, then press Enter.

  • Using the up/down buttons navigate to highlight ANT+ Power, then press Enter.
