2 Questions for Ksyrium OwnersJust Got 'Em

1) What magnet do you use?

2) Do you use the little protective disc that came with them? I was going to, but it scrubs the spokes once the cassette is mounted.

Cateye magnet that bridges across two spokes near the hub

I always remove those discs from every wheel I've ever had. If your derailleur is adjusted properly, you won't need it.

I was told the Mavic has a wheel magnet, but is 1-2 months behind on shippment. You might check your lbs.

I've used the Catseye & it works. However, I recently got something caught in the spoke which mangled the magnet & bent a spoke. Since I bought the bike used I did not get the spoke wrench, etc(hope you did, if not check into it). Also, it took me awhile to get the spoke & now I'm waiting on the spoke wrench. Luckily the wheel has help up ok.

Nice wheels though!!! You'll like 'em!!!

They often have a box of discarded magnets. I use an old Sigma magnet with my Cateye Mity 3 computer. It mounts with a small screw and fits near the hub where the blade is round. I may have had to enlarge the unthreaded portion of the slot.

My wheels came with the Campy cassette already mounted by Total Cycling. They had removed the disc without my having to ask.
