Holding wheel sensor in place
I have a late-model Flightdeck with the wireless front wheel sensor. The sensor unit is held in place by a tie-wrap type strap and has a rubber shim located under it. Since my carbon fork has a glossy finish and the legs are tapered, getting the sensor on tightly is a bit of a problem.
On a ride this weekend, I hit a bump and it dislodged the sensor, which dropped down the leg. Luckily I was able to stop quickly, walk back and find the shim, and get the whole thing put back and working again (I really needed to show mileage to follow the route sheet I was using).
Anyway, I'm wondering if I could improve the attachment by using some sort of adhesive in addition to the tie-wrap. Does anyone have an idea what could be used to stick the rubber shim to the fork leg and the sensor to the shim?
