  • Spinning with FR 405/410??

    Hi 2gether

    (sorry for my english - I'm really not used to write nor talk in english)

    I'm looking for a solution to get my FR405/410 working with my Tomahawk E-Series spinning cycle ... The delivered computer (by Tomahawk) is not compatible with ANT+

    I will try to get speed and cadence on to my FR, ...

    The spinning wheel is connected 1:1 with the pedals, so I think it should be possible to attach the GSC-10 to the front end, and the sensors directly on the spinning wheel (both of them to get speed[distance] and cadence).

    Correction: The transmission is not 1:1 but about 1:3, I now try to attach the sensors of GSC-10 next to the handle and to adjust the speed sensor accordingly.

    Does anyone have any other good ideas or solutions?

    Thanks for your support greatings from CH

    It works!

    Well, it works perfectly ...
    • stick the GSC10 to the belt box (horizontally - otherwise it will calculate a double cadence, for whatever reason)
    • a power magnet on the crank with a double-sided tape so that the part can not slip
    • pair the sensor with the FR
    • set the wheel size (Thomahawk E-Series approximately 6250 mm)

    DONE (see pictures).

    Would be great if Garmin would make a special indoorcycle sensor (cadence sensor and speed sensor of one piece with a receipt so that alignment of the sensor can be stuck on or below the belt box).
