How do you mount a copmuter magnet on bladed spokes? I tried to put it where the spoke is round, but I can't mount the sensor high enough to read it. Any ideas?

Get a Sigma Sport magnet for $5 and mount it on the bladed portion of the spoke. These magnets have a rib in the center that you push through (or cut with a razor blade) to mount on bladed spokes. They work very well on Ksyriums.

If you have a Cateye magnet, you can make them fit by shaving a little bit of the plastic off of the magnet mounting hardware.

I have mounted the magnet in a vise and drilled the hole out with an 1/8 inch drill. You can then put it on your bladed spoke. Just be careful to not overtighten and distort the spoke.

The magnets on the bottom of a Sonicare toothbrush heads are very strong and very small and can be twisted off with a pair of plyers. I hot glued them to the spoke (more of a tack) and then put a couple turns of electrical tape around spoke and magnet. This also gives very sleek look as the magets are barely wider than the spoke and with black tape they blend right in with my black spokes (Campy Neutron). BTW your dentist and your teeth will be very happy that you are using a Sonicare.
