Anyone running Vetta V100HR with cadence?shawndoggy

I don't seem to be able to locate any reliable info regarding whether the V100HR (with the heart rate monitor, obviously) will work with the vetta cadence unit (wired or wireless).

Is anyone running the HR unit with cadence?

Gracias,
Shawn

I believe the cadence unit on this Vetta machine isn't wireless! That's why I'm not using it...

Do you know if there wireless speed sensors compatible with my Polar S710?

I have a V100HR that came with the wireless cadence hookup. I ran it for about a day before yanking it off. It worked fine, but ultimately I couldn't stand the look of the sending unit and magnet on the crankarm (I generally estimate cadence based on gear and speed). The head unit with heart rate works great. In fact, there is a screen where heartrate, speed and cadence all appear. Its great not having a separate mount on the bars for heartrate or checking a watch on your wrist.

hope this helps.

Sorry... I didn't know it exist yet with a wireless cadence sensor! I'll go and check this in my bike shop, so I can buy one for my training bike. Indeed, I don't like the look of another sensor as well on my race bike.

I have mounts for a V100HR w/ wireless cadence on both of my bikes. The wireless cadence sensor is a little pricey at $99. Performance sells them (part# 40-1311A) but I was only able to find them by entering the part number from the catalog. The cadence feature works well except in cold temparatures. It tends to quit working well before the wireless speed sensor.
Thanks for the replies, guys... $99 does seem a little steep..shawndoggy

Given that the HR unit is available at chucksbikes.com for $60...
