Cadence sensor won't fit!

Hi all,

I just got an Edge 830 sensor bundle. When i went to install the cadence sensor, i found that it won't between the crank arm and the frame on my Trek Checkpoint. No position on the inside of the crank arm will fit. I guess i could put it on the outside of the crank arm, but that will surely be annoying and I'll eventually kick it off. Any other creative ideas? Bummer :/

Also, my speed sensor arrived with a dead battery, but that's not the end of the world.

  • Not sure it will work for you, but for me with the speed-sensor 2, I ended up using a small piece of double-sided foam tape along with a very tight overwrap of self-sealing silicon tape to attach the cadence sensor more snugly inside my crank while having (nearly) flush sensor on the inside and nothing protruding on the outside of the crank arm.

    When I initially installed using the supplied rubber strap, I immediately tore it off by rubbing my heel on the strap during spiriting mountain biking. My crank (SRAM Eagle GX) has a relief indent on the backside where the sensor can sit inside to gain clearance versus installing with the strap. With the flatter tape install it's been perfect.
