RPM (Cadence) 1500, 1999 peaks


(Andreas Schortens PACK) #1

Hi,

i use a cadence ant+ sensor, but during my rides, i have irregulars peaks.

The cadence get up between 1500 and 1999 for circa. 1 second.

I am really not that fast. :slight_smile: How can i avoid this?

For my ANT+ Stick i use a extension cable so it is near to my cadence sensor (ca. 0,5 meter)

Anybody have an idea?

Sound like your cadence sensor is not properly aligned or you may have interference. I had that happen and it was caused by those two things. i replaced the extension cable with a better one and aligned the sensor and magnet.

The cable cannot be the problem. I have mass of them tested :slight_smile:

I use a neodym magnet, are the type of magnet eventually to strong?

I try to position the sensor on another place.

At least you know the cable is ok. Those magnets are very strong, i use one and it works great. Play around with the position of your sensor.

As Gerrie mentioned, checking for interference is a good idea as well.
