How do you mount your wheel magnet for your computer? Is there anywhere that sells one?

my friend has the Ksyriums had to get a magnet from Mavic. you probably should ask the LBS about ordering it.

Go down to your local Radio Shack and buy Earth Magnets. These small magnets are super powerful. They fit perfectly on the wide spokes on the K's with super glue. I had them on my K's for about 1500 miles without any problems. Two for $1.98.
that's a cool idea... here's what I did...geof

I used a regular spoke mag that I drilled out to fit slightly smaller than the upper dia of the spoke, then placed the metal clamp over and compressed it a bit with pliers... Works like a champ...

Totalcyling.com sells Kysrium specific spoke magnet. Look under "wheels - mavic" on the left menu. Unfortunately, they are out ... they expect to have them in two weeks though. Might want to browse around the website and buy some other stuff (like extra bladed spokes, Sidi Genius shoes, etc ...) to make the shipping cost worth it!

had same problem, eventually just grabbed regular cateye magnet and instead of tightening between two spokes, just clamped the middle down on one, works perfectly.

Yes, I have the cateye altimeter. The cateye magnet clamps on to two spokes. I had it clamped on two spokes real close to the hub (of the Ksyrium wheel), and found it to fit really well and secured.
