Wahoo RPM Speed Sensor is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Many issues This seemed to work well at first but then I discovered that the speed sensor was not connecting to my phone and I was getting GPS data. The app needs a lot of work, it changes the wheel circumference on its own, I assume based off the GPS data which makes the sensor useless. The sensor no longer connects to the phone at all. Tried to email tech support and they were clueless. This is a great idea but it needs a LOT of work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works perfectly. Wish it was a little smaller. Everything I have by Wahoo works perfectly. The Bolt computer and the speed and cadence sensors. This sensor paired instantly and the mount is pretty easy to use as long as you don't have wheels with too high of a spoke count. Maybe not easy enough to use to swap it back and forth between bikes every time I go riding, so I might buy some more of the speed sensors for other bikes. I just wish it was a little a less obvious, because it really kills the beautiful lines of my nice carbon wheels on my road bike. But nobody looks down on that because everyone knows what it is, so I guess it's okay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speed sensor I have been using the speed sensor and Wahoo app for a few weeks now for mountain biking. I love the speed sensor. I broke two computers before purchasing this and it is much better. Gives accurate data that I can share with other apps (Strava). The only thing I can see that needs improvement is the app. It is not very intuitive, there is no way to save wheel circumference for different bikes (should be a basic feature).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine, but mountadapter only fits with RB The mount adapter is only suitable for my racebike. My mountainbike's hub is to big for the rubber adapter. As workaround I use an additional rubber to prolong the rubber adapter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just works. I like this sensor and it improves my data compared to GPS speed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using on an Exercycle I simply Velcro'ed the sensor to the idler wheel on my Exercycle, and it starts right up on my Android phone (Wahoo Fitness ap) when I start pedaling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works as a speed sensor not for zwift I bought this in hopes of using it with zwift. When it arrived it function properly as a speed sensor with my phone. However it does not function with zwift. Zwift wants it to be a cadence sensor and refuses to show it as a speed sensor. I ended up having to return mine but sort of wish I had not. It would have made a great replacement for my none smart speedometer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pedigree I purchased the Wahoo Speed sensor to eliminate the need for a magnet being affixed to a rear spoke. The magnet often moved during bike transport or rough riding and thus the sensor would fail to function. I choose Wahoo because of the success I have had with their other products and in particular the great online support I have received when I have had questions. I have used the Wahoo Speed sensor only briefly but so far it has preformed as intended. The sensor attaches to the front wheel's hub which on small diameter models should make the installation simple. However on my Giant SL0 wheels, the hub is rather large and I had difficulty stretching the rubber band sufficiently within the confines of the spokes to make the attachment. I solved my problem by creating a "U" shaped tool from a coat hanger and bending small hooks on each end that then provided the necessary leverage. Thank you.
