Track Cadence on a Spinner Bike

Cadence (also known as RPMs or revolutions per minute) is an important training metric to use during indoor cycle training.

You can track your cadence on a Spinner® bike by using a Spinning® cadence sensor, which is specifically designed for mounting to and using with Spinner (branded) bikes.

The Spinning cadence sensor is installed next to the fly wheel of the bike. (This is different from the installation of a typical outdoor bike cadence sensor (Garmin GSC-10) which is mounted next to the pedal crank arm.) Because of the mount location of the Spinning cadence sensor, Digifit is actually receiving fly wheel cadence. Digifit uses your Spinning bike’s fly wheel revolutions to calculate pedal crank revolutions, which is the RPM value that you see on your workout dashboard.

Since different Spinner bikes have different ratios of fly wheel revolutions to pedal crank revolutions, it is imperative that you identify your exact Spinner Bike so Digifit can accurately calculate cadence. (Identify your Spinner bike by tapping home, choosing Spin, then tapping Workouts -> Spin Options -> Cycle Choice).
