Have someone put Sram Cadence sensor into a XT(R) crankset?

I have similar questions.

Can the sensor be put in another pedal spindle?

Anyone have the dimensions... especially the diameter?

If it's too big, could the functional part of the sensor be separated from any unnecessary plastic covering and fixed into an existing crankset?

TIA

I'm interested but after getting burned on the RS1/Monarch XX I'll let others be the beta testers for Rocksuxx.

Well as it turned out, a sensor popped up for sale over here in Australia. I just purchased it. Should arrive by this Friday. I'll post photos and measurements. Let me know if you want any other information. I'm curious to see if it will fit in my 30mm spindled E13 cranks.

Ok, got the cadence sensor. I can confirm it fits in my e13 cranks (30mm spindle), and actually it's loose. It's a wedge device that holds it in place, so I think I can shim it to fit. Pics below for reference, but briefly:
Main tube is 18mm
Wedge expands to 24.5mm
Cap that interfaces with the crank arm is 26mm
You will need access to your spindle from both sides- sensor goes in one end, the wedge screw is tightened by the other end.

Long term plan is likely to get the shock and fork in a month or two. Wanted to get it for an upcoming race, but times and finances are tight!

Let me know if you have any questions 🙂.

I haven't ridden any of them, but people I know who've tried all 3 systems - FA / LV / whatever SR SunTour's system is called - were not complimentary at all about the RS / Fox systems. However they said SR-ST's system was brilliant.

The Suntour isn't even for sale.

According to this video from Euro XCO (5:30'ish), the Suntour wasn't even in use there!

Curious to see PFP riding manual lockouts. Not sure if this has happened at other races this year, but I can't imagine it would be a quick swap to reroute all the wires/cables in that frame, so presumably that's how she's riding it this year.

There must be a reason for such a decision.

Just got my FA fork and shock. Tomorrow I should get AXS dropper, and then I will install them in a few days.

120mm FA fork 1578g (225mm uncut steerer)
Maxle 37g
Star nut 10g
Battery 25g
CaneCreek hellbender crown race 6g
Total: 1656g

190x45 FA rear shock 324g
Shock bushings 10x30 mm 13g
Shock bushings 10x22.2 mm 9g
Battery 25g
Total: 371g

Original Fox 2022 FACTORY SC SERIES 34 FLOAT 29 120MM FIT4 Fork with crown race and star nut 1455g (155mm steerer cut from factory from 2023 Oiz M-Pro)
Fox Kabolt axle 45g
Total 1500g

Fox Float DPS factory 190x45mm shock with bushings (10x30mm and 10x22.2mm) 277g (from 2023 Oiz M-Pro)
Total: 277g

Orbea 3pos squidlock with dropper remote and cables 118g

So for me that makes FA 132g heaver, but I have not cut the steerer. After I cut the steerer I think it will be around 100g.
FA with uncut steerer 1656g+371g=2027g
Original setup with Fox factory 1500+277+118=1895g

If you want to blow crazy money, wait for the electronically controlled Öhlins fork.

You’ll get a damper that actually works and fit/finish that RS will never match.
