More Accurate Data

Up until now I’ve only been using Strava/iPhone as a cycle computer, with a chest-based hrm. Importing the received data into Strava Premium+Stravistix and SportTracks has offered good data on my rides, but by adding another piece I should be able to extract more accurate data. I’ve order the Wahoo Cadence Sensor while it was on sale during Amazon Prime Day, and it should arrive by tomorrow.

I have taken several rides on a popular trail ride nearby which I intend to compare with several more rides with the addition of the cadence sensor. I’ll post side-by-side results when I’ve completed my testing.


UPDATE: Received sensor today, July 13. Will try to get a ride in Saturday and/or Sunday for a comparison ride.
