cateye cyclo-computer advice

edited August 2011 in Accessories
just purchased a cateye strada wireless (model CC-RD300W) for our TerraTrike Path and unsure of WHERE to install the "Speed sensor" ... I've seen on the TerraTrike accessories page that the cateye micro wireless cycle computer's speed sensor (appears much smaller than the strada wireless speed sensor) is attached to an "L" bracket (yes, I have that same "L" bracket located on our TerraTrike Path). do I need to purchase JUST the speed sensor which is shown on the accessories page ... OR is it possible to attach the speed sensor which came with the strada wireless in the same/better location?

just thought we would start with the TerraTrike people first before moving on to CatEye ... thank you up front for your assistance.

    I am just an owner, but the speed sensor should be able to mounted on the L bracket, no matter what the brand. Since it is wireless, you just have to make sure that it is mounted within range of the computer unit, about 27" max.
  • I have the same unit on my Rover. I used the "L" bracket without any issues, and I actually went like 20mm further than the listed 'range' and it works fine for me.

    As Bob stated, use your sender that came with the Strada, and enjoy~!

  • Any idea if the 'L' bracket will work with the Strada Double wireless sensor? I know I can't get the cadence part to work since the tires are nowhere near the crank, but I would like to be able to use my old upright cycloputer. If it does work, where do I get one?
  • It *should* work, and the "L" bracket *should* have came with your Rover. If not, contact whom you bought it from. Failing that, simply call TT and tell them which shop sold you your Rover and refused to supply the "L" bracket. No muss, no fuss...

    Connect your cadence sensor you boom and the sender to one of the crank arms. Your cadence sensor does not need to be near your wheel - just close enough for your Strada to pick up the signal.

    On the strada double wireless the speed and cadence sensor are one and the same. If I put it up near the crank to get cadence I can't use the speed. It's an either/or situation for a trike. In fairness to cateye, I don't think they had trikes in mind when they designed it.
  • Sorry, I looked up Cateye Strada with cadence and found this one

    which showed two separate sensors
