    So where to mount your smart cadence sensors?

    I got my new Bryton bike computer... I'm finding it a bit ugly to have those black rubber bands on my crank arm though. If I was less averse I'd probably super glue it on but then I'd never get the battery back out again Wahoo has those ones you mount on your shoe but I dunno... Maybe I'm just being prissy.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    Where else would you mount a cadence sensor?
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    Nowhere to be honest. These black bands on my crank arm are making me sad

    Count your cadence in your head while using a watch and you won't have the time to think about your crank arm.
    Too old to ride plastic

    There are solutions for your prissiness.
    You could mount it with double sided tape or adhesive velcro.



    Or a frame mount cadence sensor.

    Join the crankarm power meter master race-most of them provide an ANT+ cadence signal to feed your head unit.

    Mine is mounted in my head. You don't have to count cadence too many times with a watch before you get a feel. If we're riding along and you ask my cadence, I can probably tell you within 5 BPM. You really shouldn't need a screen readout to tell you that you need to spin faster. Focus on spinning faster, not on the screen.

    Get some blue RTV gasket sealer from your auto parts store. The stuff never dries completely letting you pull off the sensors whenever you want, and itís easy to remove any excess.
