    Hi all

    How do I attach my wheel magnet to spinergy rev x?

    Was thinking superglue - but will that damage the wheel?


    Also, will any magnet work with it the shimano flightdeck receiver? (ie I've got loads of old magnets from cateye - can I use them instead of buying a new shimno magnet?)

    From Spinergy's FAQs
    ( http://www.spinergy.com/frequently_asked_questions.htm )
    All the magnet does is close a momentary contact in the sensor with each pass. Any magnet of appropriate size and strength will work.

    Ok,

    I've got a product called solarez that I used to repair my surfboard. It's not epoxy and it sets when exposed to UV light.

    Could I use this and not damage the carbon?

    It probably won't damage the carbon, but if you ever want to move the magnet it's going to be pretty tough to get off. Double faced tape should be more than strong enough.
