WTB - Polar S Series Speed Sensor

Postby clack3rz » Wed Apr 02, 2008 6:00 pm

I'm looking for a second-hand working Polar S Series Speed Sensor - even if the battery is flat!

You can PM me if you have one available!

Yeah - seen them, but was looking to get my hands on a second-hand one.
I'm looking to get it to work with my CS200.
I want to have the speed sensor on the rear wheel and the S series range can be increased to do so.
So I don't know if it will work - hence not wanting to purchase a brand new one if I can help it!

A suggestion to try, don't know howell it will work though, get a length of electrical insulated stranded wire, and loop it around the sensor a couple of times and and then run it up to the bike computer, and around it a couple of times. See if that improves operability from the rear wheel. Some experimentation may be required. The idea is that the wire acts an aerial and picks up the signal from the sensor and carries it to the computer and it may be a stronger signal.

It might work for you, or it might be a dismal failure.

I tried and failed!
The range is only just short when it seems to loose it's signal - not sure why they made it this way.....
Looks like I'll need to go and get an S Series (or a set of rollers!)

UPDATE:
OK got my hands on a 2nd hand S series speed sensor.
Moved the jumpers and attached the sensor to the rear - it worked!
So now I can move the CS Speed sensor to my commuter, use the CS200 on both bikes, and use my roadie on the indoor trainer - can now record speed/distance on the trainer
