Cycle computer as trip

Post by leopard_pagan on Sat Jun 15, 2013 1:33 pm

Ok i know it sounds weird....
basically i want a re-settable Trip & use it to gauge my fuel like i do on my Motorcycle.
3 types:
GPS £70+ maybe santa will get me one for xmas!
Wireless which use a sensor £12+ wireless can stop transmitting so a weakness in my books.
Wired to sensor £4+

i dont mind the wired versions if i can work out how to mount the sensors...
brake calliper?
would that be too small a diameter for wheel width.
not too many other places to fit the pick up.

So long as you mount the magnet and dial the distance traveled per wheel revolution the caliper will be a ok mounting place the only prob you may get is induced pick up or lack of pulse they work on a coil producing a very small amount of power as the magnet passes by and they arn't designed to be surrounded by all that metal.
