I’m finally starting to try out some things on my Arduino after getting back to Edmonton. I want to make a bike computer for when I’m riding on my stationary trainer. Normally I would use my iPhone and Kinetic, but that doesn’t work when you’re not actually moving. I ordered some Hall effect sensors to sense a magnet attached to the rear wheel and figure out speed and distance “travelled”. Hall effect sensors suck, by which I mean I’m too inexperienced to figure out how to make it work effectively. So now I ordered some reed switches and am waiting on those. They require less components than the Hall sensor anyways (the jerks). on March 23, 2011
