Tell me about Flite Deck Virtual Cadence???The Old Man

If the computer is figuring cadence based on gear ratio and speed does this mean the read out is accurate only if you are on pedaling on a level or climbing?
You nailed it.MeMyselfandI

Stupid system, huh?
Why is that a problem?MrCelloBoy

I don't get what connection whether your level or climbing has to do with accuracy. When you're coasting there's no cadence anyway!

There is with Flight Deck. It continues to show cadence when you coast.
That sounds smart to me.railer

That sounds better than running the wire, magnet and sensor down to the crank. Its only going to be inaccurate if you change tire sizes or maybe you can compensate for that with the computer. I like this idea. You only need a general idea anyway, it doesnt really matter if youre off by a few rpms.

The Cadence is correct and will let you know what gear to shift to when you are coasting down a hill and want to start pedaling again without over spinning . It is an awesome tool for riding and I think more accurate than the wire and sensor
That sounds smart to me.geez

If you can't figure out when to pedal or shift... get an autobike! The cr@p people buy into never ceases to amaze.

It is accurate in all cases. It is pur math, It I know the gear inches and the speed, I automatically know the cadence. If you are going up a hill and your speed reduces, wouldn't your cadence reduce? Conversly, to maintain the same speed in the same gear, wouldn't you need the same cadence (even though it would take more energy)? Think about it.
