does anyone make a "generic" spoke magnet that fits a rolf pro wheel?

or am a better off filing or slotting a groove in a regular magnet for it to fit?

Hi Ben,

I too, have Vector Pros, and have found that the replacement magnets sold by Cateye work just fine. The slot on the magnet is such that it will accept either a round or an elliptical spoke. Cost about $10.00 at my LBS.

The magnet that Shimano makes for their wheels works great. The magnet is made for 2.0 mm bladed spokes, which is what Rolf Pro's use. It just snaps on and is the smallest cycling magnet I have seen. I used one for 8 months with Rolf wheels until I sold that bike. Any LBS should be able to get one for you.
