5 second holes in speed data

5 second holes in speed data

Postby warrenjsmith » Tue May 17, 2016 3:23 am

I'm using a Cateye ANT+ speed/cadence sensor paired with my newton 6, and every minute or so - especially on the long flat part of the ride, a 5 second-long hole appears in the ride file where speed drops about 7kmh, and corresponding power drops as well (of course). I notice this on the bike sometimes (when looking down, where speed will drop off completely and then come back fairly quickly. Is there a reason for this? Would it be fixed by having the iBike version of speed/cadence? They actually look the same anyway.....

It sounds like your Cateye sensor is misbehaving. Make sure the speed sensor/magnet are properly positioned. If that doesn't work then the iBike sensor will definitely do the job.
