Cyclocomputers work fine as long as:

you mount the sensor close enough to 'see' the magnet.
you calibrate the computer to the tire size (e.g. changing from 700c to 26" or vice versa)

No pictures = didn't happen.

And if you were going down the hill today, how has it been four days since you've been able to lift it?
