    spoke card issues

    anyone have secrets for keeping spoke cards in? i know its a lame ass thing, but ive lost all mine (3) due to wind and just bad luck wile riding. i even put a 2 baseball cards in there so my wheel wont look so naked, and one fell out on a ride and when cleaning my drivetrain the other fell out.

    Use a clothes pin on the fork and make sure only the tip of the card touches the spokes - that gets you the best sound.
