Feb 21, 2003 9:30 PM
Get this, I just got a new flight deck computer and i want to mount the magnet on some shimano R 535 wheels....does anybody make a wheel magnet for aero type spokes...it seems shimano forgot to mention that the flight deck magnet is not compatible with shimano wheel spokes(or either im totally missing something)......i have to mount the magnet farther from center on the wheel......any help would be appreciated?

Try getting the Sigma or Mavic magnet.

Just turn the magnet sideways. It will fit and work.

I have the same 535 wheels with Shimano rounded magnet. What I did was to drill the hole a bit bigger, sanded it smooth and put two bit of plastics on both side of the spoke and mounted it. It has been working great for the last 2 years.

that comes with Ultegra and the Dura Ace wheels standard. Can be bought separetely. They can be found with the technical explanation on Shimanos website for the wheels. They are the smallest I've seen and they are black. They can hardly be seen on the whhels. Have on my 535 wheels. The nicest there is and ten times better than tle large Mavic one and the horrible Flightdeck one!

I like this solution better. How/where did you get one?
