This is a good idea... as long as your sensor and your uC
can keep up with the pulses. I didn't look into the sensors
that you picked, but they usually publish their response
times... so you need to check that out.
How many teeth does a typ. sprocket have? Say about 40T.
Lance Armstrong spins his cranks at 80RPM. That would be
53.3 pulses/sec (or 1 pulse every 18.75 ms).
Sometimes the sprockets have spokes or holes in them to make
them lighter. Like 6 or 8. Perhaps sensing those would
provide a more sensible signal if 18ms is too fast for your
