The speed pickup on my front fork on my commuter has been driving me nuts for the past two weeks. I hear "click" with every revolution of the front wheel. The magnet isn't hitting the pickup. Is there a way to stop this other than buying a new cyclocomputer?

The cyclocomputer is almost 4 years old (Vetta RT77). I have the same cyclocomputer (almost 5 years old) on my road bike and it doesn't make any "click" sounds.

If the magnet isn't hitting something I can't imagine what the source of the sound could be. Generally, bike computer pickups have a little reed switch inside of them that you can barely hear if you spin the wheel while the bike is on the tuneing stand. I wouldn't think that would be nearly loud enough to drive you "nuts".

Damn good hearing if you can even hear that little switch, let alone have it annoy you. I've had rental customers complain about hearing the tires adhere to the asphault.
