    Hi all,

    I just got the Polar 720i and can't seem to figure out how to "deploy" the cadence sensor on my oversized Cannondale tube. It sticks out too far! Am I missing something?

    Oh, and Northeast folks, check out http://www.fabish-sport.com for everything cycling!



    Thanx,

    Tom

    If you look at the tube an divide it in the usual 360 degrees are you mounting it in the 90/270 degree position? then try 45/315 degrees (not mounting it at the side of the tube but somewhere between the side and the top, in stead of sticking its whole size to the side it now will stick less to the side and some more up, may look funny but can do the trick)


    image + is the tube - is the sensor . are only to make the graphic somewhat working

    1 what i assume you do

    maarten,

    Did like you suggested and it works great!

    One more thing, how water sensitive are the sensors (speed & cadence)? The manual says 'splash-proof', but what about when washing the bike?

    Thanx,

    Tom
