Hi everyone

I replaced my pedals the other day and in the process had to remove my garmin cadence sensor, once removed it loses it stickiness and even when tied to the crank arm wobbled and on my first ride out I lost it.

Whilst looking for a sensor I found this its a really elegant solution and fits well .

I use a small disc-shaped magnet that fits neatly over the end of the pedal spindle. A couple of quid off eBay and pretty much invisible:

Seconded for the pedal spindle magnet, very neat and nearly invisible.

+1 from me on buying a small, rare-earth disc magnet from ebay. Smile

How do you get them in and out? And do they tend fall out over bumps etc
