Garmin Bike Speed and Cadence Sensor
The Garmin Bike Speed Sensor and Cadence Sensor is best used for cycling and works well in areas where a GPS signal cannot be detected. It is equally suitable for indoor and outdoor bike riding as it works well with turbo trainer and is wireless. Use them separately or combined to measure speed and cadence with the low drag, lightweight design. No tools are necessary for installing, and the sensors can be relocated from bike to bike easily. These are not noticeable on a bike by other people, plus they can be removed for cleaning often. This Garmin product comes with three different sizes of rubber straps to attach the devices to the bike hub, rather than magnets as other products use. when connected, there are no exposed parts or magnets to line up for placement on the bike. Nothing will get caught in the bike spokes either as you ride. The frustration of these issues have been eliminated with the incredible technology from Garmin to make your life easier and more pleasant when training and exercising. The device will self-calibrate quickly in connection with Garmin Edge to give you constant results of speed and cadence.

As we stated before briefly, the devices must be affixed to a rear-wheel when riding a bike indoors. Since the front wheel does not rotate in these sessions, it will not be the measuring wheel for the data. If you use the same bike interchangeably for inside and outside, then save yourself the time and trouble of moving the sensors and install on the back, wheel hub. This way, you are all set for either area.
As you can see, this item is best used for cycling activities to track the speed and cadence of the user. Customers say in their comments that the Garmin Bike Sensors might not perform well or will skip info when hitting bumps or holes in the road. Knowing this, you have another incentive, besides being hurt or thrown from the bike when hitting a bump or hole, to avoid these obstacles.
