    I've been using a Cateye Cordless 7 on my
    bike and I've noticed that it stops reading
    when I'm going down reasonably steep
    hills. It starts back up when I hit level
    ground so I know it's not a positioning
    problem with the sensor. I'm not sure if
    it's a speed problem or something to do
    with the tilt of the bike on the hills.

    Anybody knows what causes this?

    Is there a fix?

    I'd like to know how fast I'm going on
    those hills.

    I had a similar problem with mine. The difference was that mine wouldn't read UP hills. Especially when I was out of the saddle. I was never able to figure out why. I also had some interference problems around electric fences and such. I bought a Polar 720i, which is also cordless, and haven't had any problems whatsoever.
