Creating A Cheap Bicycle Cadence Meter

We love it when an old Lifehacker tip is given a new lease on life. A new wireless bike computer from ALDI can be used to create a bicycle cadence meter.Back in 2009, Lifehacker described how to make a cadence meter for your bike. Reader, Chris Jones, has found that a $17 wireless bicycle computer currently being sold at ALDI can be used with this tip. Thanks Chris!


    Mind my ignorance, but don't most bike computers have a cadence function?

      Normally a cadence function would meter the pedal motion.. which many bike computers dont do.

    Even on Ebay, the cheapest wireless computer I have been able to find with a cadence function was over $90.
