Cycle computer sensor mount

edited October 2011 in Rover
We are futzing around trying to mount a PB Protege 9.0 Wireless cyclecomputer sensor mount on Dad's Rover and aren't quite happy with where we are.

Would anyone care to post pictures of how their cycle computer sensor is mounted? Doesn't matter if it's a PB computer or not. We're mostly looking at "location"/method.

Thanks.

FWIW, the PB mount is simply two zip ties - obviously meant for a bicycle fork where it worked quite well.

  • Terratrike has a mounting bracket that works with the computer you have to mount the sensor.
  • I see the one that Utah Trikes has - but it's $20 which seems a bit exorbitant.

    Unfortunately, I don't see a mount for holding the sensor close to the wheel/magnet on the spoke on this site. Got a link? I'd appreciate it a lot. So would my Dad.

  • I got mine from Terratrike. They said you are supposed to get one with the trike. It is just a small l bracket that bolts to the end of the tie rod assembly.
  • I guess that's "the problem". We got Dad's Rover used with no cyclecomputer on it.

    We're probably going to try mounting the sensor on one of the handlebar arms. With direct steering, the distance between the handlebar arm and the spoke remains the same regardless of turning.

  • Simple solution: Call TerraTrike and ask for the bracket. They will send at minimal cost. (Also, look on left steering linkage and see if it already is there, a black "L" shaped bracket, 1 1/2 inches on each arm. My two Paths both came with it installed.) If you buy the computer from them they include a bracket.

    That probably won't work. Call Terratrike and ask them to ship you the bracket.
  • Thanks for the info about the L-bracket. I can probably pick one up cheaply at the local hardware store with less trouble than calling TT (nothing against them, but the postage is probably more than the tax I'll pay locally).

    We did get the sensor to work temporarily mounted on the handlebar arm while the trike was on its side (for mounting purposes). Unfortunately, it didn't continue to work when we righted the trike... so we'll try finding an L-bracket locally similar to what is on my Cruiser (and assume it's the same one sent with all computers sold by TT). I didn't originally see what ya'll are calling the L-bracket... just overlooked it.

  • I must say we love Sun Cyclery in Phoenix, AZ. I will see if I can upload the photo of my "Cateye" on the L bracket. . . Mike Koebe did on the mounting of all the extras for us at no charge!! hopefully by resizing the photo to 90 pixels by 67 pixels it will "fit" in here for you . . .
    Doing the right thing doesn't always make friends, but you will sleep better.

  •   Would of liked to seen the photo of this L bracket in use...
