Hi Tariq, some good points here especially want to connect everything through one connection. One advantage of a separate cadence sensor is the accuracy because when cadence is broadcasted it’s an estimate only. But I guess you answered that by saying that you don’t focus on cadence and it’s just nice to have the data.
That’s correct Damian. Looking at power files from other trainers that estimate cadence, they mostly do a very good job at it. Tacx Neo and Flux do it better than Elite Trainers and TechnoGym MyCycling comes with a cadence sensor built in. Usually, you see some variances when your pedal isn’t smooth or you make sudden changes to your cadence like when sprinting or going down a hill and there isn’t enough tension on the chain. But overall, they should be able to estimate it be within +/-1% of an actual cadence sensor.
