I am after a cheap Ant+ Cadence sensor to put on my old bike when I move my Garmin one onto my new bike. Since moving it back and forth is a task I really cannot be bothered doing I would rather just get a second one so I can just move the Garmin from bike to bike without losing the capability. Anyone know of what, where and how much I can pick one up for? So long as its Ant+ I dont care which make.

Cheers.

    If you really only need cadence, Bontrager do one - £22 at Evans, not sure about local to you. Most are combined cadence/speed. That would be about £24 for the giant at cyclestore.

    £16.99 speed and cadence from Decathlon: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/ant-speed-rate-sensor-id_8181211.html

    I've got the bontranger. Works great with G510, looks fine, attaches to frame and cranks with rubberized bands.

    Not sure what the wire is for on the decathalon link?

    The wire lets you put distance between speed and cadence sensors so the magnet for cadence doesn't trigger the speed sensor and vice versa.

    Cheers for the help. Just to clarify, I already own a cadence sensor, but I run 2 bikes depending on weather, race or training. I just need something that will replace the ant + sensor that comes with the garmin 500 I use on the second bike. So when I swap ride its just a case if bringing the GPS with me with minimal fuss.

    OK, I thought it was just cadence.
