Which manufacturer makes cyclometer to use with rear wheels?(8 posts)

Which manufacturer makes cyclometer to use with rear wheels?KirkLee

I might have post this once already but I could not find it on the forum.

I am looking for a cyclocomputer to be placed on the rear wheeel of my bike, since the front wheel is stationary when I am on the trainer.

Thanks in advance...

Try a Cateye Astrale. It has cadence also and is an excellent quality computer.

Cateye offers rear wheel mount kits for most of their computers. They ship ft. mounts with some of their units, but have the rears as an option.
Sigma makes a rear wheel kit for their computers as well.. (nm)Jekyll

Vetta makes them also.

Can be mounted in the rear. Ditto on the Astrale recommendation, and I've also wired Vetta and Specialized like that.

The wireless models require too close a proximity between the fork sensor and the computer, so I think they are all out.

If you have a bike with newish Campy stuff, and want the functions... I read that the cadence and speed sensors for the Campy Ergobrains are identical but for the wire length. You could simply use two cadence sensors (you can buy a second cadence sensor separately) and mount the speed magnet on the rear wheel.

This is definitely not the most economical solution.
Avocet has a rear mount kit. (NM)On the rivet
