Astrale 8 install question 2 - spoke magnet loc

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Okay - I have the inner tube spacers working. Now - is there a specific place (distance from whatever) that the spoke magnet is supposed to go?

the physics part of my brain just kicked in - it shouldn't matter where it is - just how many times the magnet passes the sensor. Duh! Thanks for the help

You would be amazed at the number of threads where people would stongly maintained that it did make a difference, I know better, but I still have to stop and think on it for a second or two.
