    Question Garmin Vector 2s Installation -- This may seem like a dumb question...

    I just installed the Garmin Vector 2s pedals on my bike.

    Now I just need to figure out where to put my speed/cadence sensor. I have the Garmin speed/cadence, but before installation, I had a small magnet over the pedal bolt. Can't do that anymore because the pedal pod plug is not there. So I have to go back to the old magnet that you need to use a zip tie to secure to the pedal.

    My question is: Would having a magnet so close to the Vector pedal pod mess up power readings?

    You don't need cadence from the speed/cadence sensor. The Vector with record your cadence.

    Just use the speed/cadence sensor with the wheel magnet to record speed. Eliminate the crank magnet.

    Eliminate the whole speed/cadence sensor setup.

    GPS device will track your speed.

    Power meter will track your cadence.

    Get that crap off of your bike.
