Read your recent post, interesting. I immediately went out and looked my ride. Would you know which size fits into a DA crankset? How do you fix the magnet into the small, threaded, recessed area left behind the pedal spindle? Nice idea.
Not sure on size for DA CranksetB2

My setup has a Record crank. Just measure the diameter of the threaded hole for your pedals and select a magnet with a slightly smaller diameter. I would get the thinnest one available in that diameter. Keep in mind that the magnet is attracted to the pedals spindles(sp?) and if you're using titanium spindles it won't work. At least I don't think magnets are attracted to titanium anyway.

Here's the website where I found 'em http://www.indigo.com/magnets/gphmgnts/rare-earth-magnets.html

Good Luck,

Campy or Shimano - They all take the same size pedals. I used the 12.5mm diameter magnet #33516 for $2.10.
