    PowerTap Wires

    Electronics hate me this year.

    When I was plugging in my powertap this morning to download my ride (and free up space), the docking unit split in two, and the wires pulled out of of the board.

    Does anyone know what wire gets soldered to what connection? There's only four wires, and four connections, labeled GND, D+, D-, and VBUS - pretty straightforward.

    VBUS = Red
    D- = White
    D+ = Green
    GND = Black

    Soldered and working. With the computer problems I've been having, at least I can get this...

    Yup. Note the time difference (~13 hours) between asking and answering. There were a couple of calls to CycleOps' "customer service" line in there.

    They were helpful - a new cradle is heading my way - but they were almost amused by my desire to fix it.

    Hey, I had a great 72 miler on Sunday that I didn't want to be erased... and I don't want to go all week without the Powertap, either.

    So anyway, all's well in the world. Now about my laptop...
