Abstract A mechanism for selecting a processing mode for a bicycle computer includes a mounting member adapted to be mounted on a first bicycle component; a first signal sensor retained to the mounting member; a second signal sensor retained to the mounting member; and a first signal provider for providing a first signal and arranged to be disposed in a predetermined plurality of positions relative to the first signal sensor and the second signal sensor. The algorithm used to control the desired component may be selected based on whether the first signal is sensed by the first signal sensor and/or the second signal sensor.
