I'm putting a wireless computer on my bike and there is no clearance between the crank and the chainstay to accomodate the cadance magnet attached to the pedal spindle. I don't like the looks of zip ties on my cranks, and they move anyway. What glue is good to attach the magnet to the crank arm?

Gorilla glue. Once attached you will play hell trying to remove.
On both of my road bikes there is a recess at the end of the spindles. I ground down disk magnets to fit in the recess. The magnets are held by superglue. These have held for more than 7 years.

much easier to deal with should you ever replace your crank :)

I use Goop. Only comes off when I want it off.

You can buy round rare earth magnets at Radio Shack or a craft store. I just slip one on the inside end of the pedal spindle. magnetism holds it there without glue. I've also used hot glue and Goop/E6000/Shoe Goo to attach to the crank arm. All work well.
