    Yesterday was my first ride... Magic!
    The bike is confortable, stable and accelarate like a rocket.
    Incredible, I could feel each pedale stroke even if I use the 52 or the 36....
    Final configuration in 2 weeks with my news brake.... FRM Ti
    Have a good ride.

    Speed & Cadence Sensors

    Nice pictures Stef, a great looking bike! I am probably biased as it looks a bit like mine.

    Question:
    Is anyone using speed/cadence sensors with computers/HRM on their CR1? I am setting up the Polar speed and cadence sensors on my new bike for use with the S625X. Anyone with installation tips to share? E.g. our down tube is rather thick, so can the cable ties provided actually fit? Do you have favourite positions for the sensors and why? I have heard that our glossy paint finish chips easy, thinking of using some old inner tube to cushion the cable ties - is that a good idea?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Kewlnitrox
    I didn't use heart rate, so imagine a cadence meter.....
    To protect the frame I use Hockey tape the clear one, this is not the perfect protection but this is strong enought and it's cheap so you can change it as you want.

    No hockey tape in this part of the world...

    BUT I remember what they look like... Similar to tennis racket head tape ya? Would the paint finish peel off with it?

    Thinking of using cut out old inner tube, but I guess over time that could disintegrate too...

    Can't wait for the weekend to go riding!

    Velcro

    ...you know the sticky backed type, the fluffy side on the bike between the cables.

    The glue on the tape is not enought strong to peel of the finish.

    Velcro...

    sounds really interesting... Except I am confused by how to use it. Sorry but do you mean just stick it on the frame such that the fluffy side is facing the cables? Any chance of a pic illustration?

    Thats it. Exactly what i mean. Never needs replacing because it never wears out. Well, 3 years on my Mtb and still ok, and it never looks crapy and therefore in need of replacement.

    Hi Stef,

    WOW! Nice brakes! They look light too. ;) The 105 brakes feel a bit uncertain, not very confidence inspiring...

    I am sorry to report that I have yet to remove the plastic disk - one of these days I will lose control and cut it off with my wire cutters.

    My 1st race on the CR1 is coming in 10 days - a short Triathlon. It will be just about the same course that I did some months back on the old bike so it will be interesting to see the time difference.

    Oh, I have also fixed the Polar speed and candence sensors on the bike with some old inner tube as cushion. Not the prettiest solution in the world, but it works!
