    Cateye Speed Meter

    Hello,

    I have an older Cateye CC-CL100 and it doesn't fit on my carbon fiber forks could I put this on the back wheel or is it time to get a new speed meter?
    The Ferrari ('05 Bianchi Forza) had a flat (Stupid Glass) the Japanese wagon ('77 Nishiki with Arkel Utility Basket) was in the body shop (On my bench being repainted...repent ye rust)
    so I took the SUV ( Cannondale V2000 Active 100SL)

    Why doesn't it fit? Most of the sensors simply attach with zip ties. If your fork has differently shaped blades, you probably just need a few new zip ties

    I looked at the manual and see what you mean. It says in the manual something about a small and large band. If you don't have the large band you might contact Cateye and see if they can send you something or they might have an idea on how to mount it. They are very good to work with and give outstanding customer service.

    Ummm... WHY replace it? It's not like the new computers do something the old ones don't. I have a 15-y.o. Cateye that works fine. Wireless computers take about 10 seconds less to install, which is nice, but no good reason to upgrade.

    Yeah one problem I am having is the farher I go up the fork to get the sensor out of the way of the spokes. The fatter the blade becomes vis a vi the band no longer fits arround the blade properly
