speed sensor on the chainstays/seatstays??

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I have an Astrale 8 and both sensors are mounted on the left chainstay. They are about six inches apart and the magnets do not come closs to crossing paths with the wrong sensor, so there is no interference.

You can also get a rear-mount wiring kit for the Sigma BC1600.

Cateye Astrale 8 uses a rear-wheel speed sensor and cadence sensor mounted on the chainstay. Great for trainer use. Works great on the road, too, for that matter.

Oooh.. thanks bro.. I will look it up... My other idea was to use the 1600 as a dedicated trainer comp and get a wireless .. oh well the OCP in me... ...
