View Full Version : cycle speedos

Just a few queries to save me having to do things twice.
1 Has anyone attached the magnet to the brake disc (near one of the fixing nuts)?
2 if so, what did you use to attach it. I cannot make my mind up between a superglue style fix or using a silicone sealant?
3 Has anyone had any problems with wheel balance as a result of the fit?
4 my tyre circumference seems to come out at 1520mm. Anyone think this is wildly out?

By the way, i gave up on the magnet that came with the speedo since I just could not get it out of the spoke mount (it is still in there but now in four pieces), and will be using a magnet from one of those magnetic door catches.

I glued mine to the edge of my rim, since there is no possible way I can get my sensor between the brake disc and my frontfork. I don't think it will get unstable from a 2 gram magnet :) My circumfence is about 1470mm I believe. On this pic u can see where I mounted my magnet and sensor:
