    Speed/Cadence/Power Sensor?

    Anyone have any experience with these multi-function sensors at https://cyclemeters.com/products/smart? I need to replace an ill fitting Garmin sensor on my fat bike and figured I could pick up multiple units to cover my gravel bike as well, while maybe getting semi-decent power feedback.

    I have no experience with that product.
    Have another look at that product page, turn on your skepticism, logic and best critical thinking skills then reconsider considering that item.

    That's a big seller, they only sell one product and it's running low.

    I can't believe that you actually think that will provide power data. I don't think the speed or cadence information would be accurate either. Do you order a lot of stuff from late night TV too?

    Guys, it looks like it comes with a feather and some rubber bands. That has to be worth something right?

    Y'all wouldn't be so skeptical if you read the reviews on the website. All 5 stars, you know.

    Well, they didn't say "Hurry and order and we'll send you TWO units for the price of one with separate processing fees!" So you know there's some legitimacy to this product. And no, I never watch late night TV.

    Their advertisement does not say the sensor measures Power. After reading the various articles my understanding is the 'multi-use' sensor can be set up to measure cadence only 'or' speed only. You will need a second sensor if you want to measure both.

    I'm sorry...but this is the very first line of text on the add the OP linked:

    CYCLEMETER™ - CYCLING POWER SENSOR


    VERY closely followed by this:

    The CycleMeter™ is the all-in-one power meter you can put on your bike! Track your speed, cadence, how much force your legs are creating, all in realtime sent directly to your bike computer or phone!

    And then this:

    Track Your Speed, Cadence, Force. CycleMeter tracks your power values over your rides so that you can see exactly where you need to improve!

    Please explain to me how this isn't claiming it measures power.

    That's exactly what is says.
    However, can anyone explain how speed and cadence alone can produce a power measurement? I'm afraid that's just not possible. If it were, there would be NO power meters for sale.
    This thing is a joke, It will never give an accurate power measurement.

    Jesus CX quit jumping on people. I wasn't referring to 'CycleMeter' in the OP's link. I was referring to 'XOSS' who (I believe) is the manufacturer of the sensor which I provided two links.

    Weren't we talking about the product that the OP linked?Why would you start talking about a different product?

    If you think that was 'jumping on someone' I'm not sure how to make my point in a manner that would be nice enough for you.

    Actually it's the same product and I merely posted an attachment to show the product can provide speed OR cadence only.

    Sure you do. And being an A-hole is just one of them.

    If post #12 by CX gets him an A-hole rating, that is sad. The post was pretty straight forward, he didn't call you names or try to make you look stupid. I guess some folks are easily triggered.

    You want ******* I'll give you *******. The OP provided a link to a product. At the site linked it very specifically mentions 'power' a bunch of times. You found a link to a seller that doesn't. I don't ****ing care what appears at your link, I'm working with what the OP provided because that's what matters in this thread. You're the one that's trying to troll/derail things. Stop being a damn snowflake and deal w/ life on the internet. You shall be the first on my previously non-existent ignore list.

    This is almost signature-worthy, except it points to some causes of a lot of problems with life on this planet. Namely, snowflakes and the internet.

    So I nailed it?

    I am so sick of people over reacting and getting butthurt at the slightest thing. For chrissakes just HTFU and deal. It's not that hard, otherwise you'd spend all day in your safe space.
