    Cateye Cordless on Lefty?

    Just wondering if any of you all have had any luck with Cateye cordless computers mounted on Lefty forks? Is the distance from the sensor to the display to long? Thanks.

    My cateye cordless works fine on my lefty speed DLR2.
    I also bought from ebay a smaller magnet which I glued to the front rotor and didn' t use the otherwise necessary adapter to mount the sensor.

    It's available if someone needs it for this project .

    Had one and it didn't work, even with the adapter. I've swapped to a non-wireless one and works 100%.

    Personally I don't recommend them.

    I've been using a cateye micro wireless on my Rush for almost a year. Absolutely no problems once mounted. I cable tied the sensor setup to the lefty and use a small thin magnet on inside of the rotor. This is a pretty standard setup for the cateye wireless units on lefty's from what I've seen.

    I am using a cateye micro wireless on my Rush. The sensor and computer are well within recommended distance 70cm (27.5 inches).

    Mine works perfectly with the mavic crossmax magnet attached to the rotor.

    Put a very small but very strong magnet on the rotor and cable tied sender unit as appropriate on the leg. No good signal to the bar mount so took an old rear reflector mount and cable tied the long part (2 ties) to the top part of the lefty and screw mounted cateye to that. It sits at an angle so I can see it, and can live with that.
