    Canondale Lefty and Computer Setting

    Hi Everyone -

    I have a Canondale F2 - Lefty and a Cateye Strada Wireless

    In addition i have the computer mount from Canondale - However since the sensor is mounted near the hub and not near the tire - the settings need to be different for the computer size measurement

    anyone have any suggestions

    The sensor placement doesn't matter as long as it detects the magnet.
    The sensor doesn't measure linear velocity, it measures angular velocity (that is, the amount of turns in a second, which is the same no matter where the sensor is located).

    Most sensors measure the number of rotations in a given time. Since the hub will rotate the same amount of times as the tire, the location of the sensor is more personal choice or where ever it functions best.

    Settings.

    The setting is in place to be able to allow for different tire sizes. If you want exact, measure distance of one FULL wheel rotation in mm. Then the cpu clicks off the # of hits, and multiplies by (x) mm.
