During last year I have been steadily improving my cycling. When I got my Garmin Edge 800 Performance & Navigational Bundle I decided to install the cadence sensor (Garmin GCS10) and started to wear the heart rate monitor as well on my rides.
But because BBB has small wheels the GCS10 couldn't reach both the wheel magnet (Speed) & pedal magnet (Cadence).
- For use with wireless ANT+ PowerTap power meters.
- Compatible with android and iPhone/iPad devices with use of appropriate ANT+ adapter key
The small bo is the speed part of the sensor & short cord is attached the cadence sensor. Zip ties, rubber bases and spoke magnet also come with the package.
Here it is all installed on BumbleB

Another senor of this type I have also seen that should work with the Brompton is the
Wahoo Fitness Premium Speed Cadence which is of the same type of design.
