Carbon fiber bike and forks?? Magnet attachment???

by housein on Mon May 19, 2008 1:54 pm

how to I attach the magnet to my forks???? they are Carbon Fiber and I can't glue them on (bike is too expensive for that) can I tie them down with rubber bands or something ( can the magnet be covered??)

didn't even think about this before ordering

Oh well that's my fault...

The magnet can be covered as long as you don't mount it too far away from the sensor. wax the bike well before you put anything on the frame to protect it. You could use non black electrical tape or as you say rubber bands. Should work just fine.

Thanks guys, electrical tape will do the trick and I don't have to worry about my bike having permanent parts attached to it, I think I will get a different wheel set just for use when I have the spokepov's in.

thanks again
