    I don't have any firsthand experience with that computer, but it doesn't matter where you mount the sensor/magnet in relation to the hub, as long as you can get them close enough to function properly. The magnet-to-sensor distance is usually specified in the installation manual.

    All the sensor and magnet do is count wheel revolutions, so it does not matter where you mount the sensor on the fork, as the magnet can only pass the sensor once per revolution.
    The computer takes revolutions and mulitplies that by the tire circumference you entered in the setup of the computer and uses that to calculate speed and distance.
