Has any ever cut the cadence wires off of a cadence equipped computer? I got one for free the other day, but I dont really want the cadence function cluttering thins up. I want to know if cutting the cadence wire will affect the other functions.

TIA

Years ago the Cateye Solar cyclometer had a cadence sensor
that was plugged into a little jack in the computer that
was the same kind of jack that mini stereo headphones uses.
Wish they used a system like that today.

I don't see how it would effect the computer *unless* the
computer is expecting a closed circuit. How to test?

Cut the wire to the cadence sensor about two or three
inches away from the computer mount and test it.

If it works, cut the rest of it off. If not.....

You can cut the wires as close to the mount as you can
manage and twist the + and - wires together to close the
circuit.

You'll never know unless you try unfortunately....

Maybe the computer manufacturer has ideas on how you could
do this but that's what I'd do if I didn't want cadence...
