    Hey all,

    You've gotta be kidding me.

    After posting all sorts of data about the accuracy of the new Astrale 8 vs. my decade old (but still
    wonderful) Specialized cyclocomp, the cadence on the Astrale 8 just upped and quit on me today!
    After only 110 miles and 4 short outings.

    Can you frigging believe it!? My tried and true Specialized, something like 10 or 11 years old, with
    probably 20,000+ miles on it and its harness, banged up in countless falls, water and God knows what
    else spilled on it, a scratched and bruised case and lens, cut up buttons, and chiggered wires and
    contacts, is still going strong without ever a single malfunction. Amazing!

    I'll chalk it up to one of those small % bad units that leave the factory. In this case the harness,
    wire, or pickup. The headunit registers cadence when I short the appropriate pins, but no signal
    comes from the pickup.
