moving computer from old bike to new bike, but new wheel's spokes don't cross so the grooves on the magnet's clamp that would normally grab two spokes isn't wide enough to reach two spokes. anyone else solve a similar problem?
this picture shows typical mounting on spokes that cross:
Spoke magnets are available in different styles including flat-spoke specific ones. They all do the same job, just pick up a new one.

some glue so it doesn't slide outward?

thanks guys. actually I got it to work. one does not need two spokes to hold a magnet. and the bladed spokes help keep the magnet from rotating on the spoke. my magnet has two grooves, a narrow one and a wide one. I was able to use the narrow one.
then came adjusting the sensor - took a little while with the wide flat carbon fork, then I realized my battery was low - so a trip to CVS, no luck, then Walgreens that had the right battery, yay.
a few other swaps to go ... thanks again! :thumb:
