Is the RPM Speed compatible with spin bikes?

Unfortunately, the RPM Speed sensor is not compatible with most spin bikes.


The RPM Speed Sensor is designed to mount on the hub of a bicycle wheel. It measures the rotational speed of the wheel and multiplies it by the size of the wheel to yield speed. Most spin bikes use a solid flywheel to simulate the resistance on which the RPM Speed Sensor can not be properly mounted.


If you are able to find a way to mount the RPM Speed Sensor, most spin bike flywheels do not spin at the same rate as a standard road wheel. Finding the proper wheel circumference to simulate an outdoor speed may be a bit difficult.
