    mounting a computer to a Lefty?

    Hi all--- I've never mounted a computer before am frustrated finding a good mounting position on the Lefty. Obviously the top of the boot is out of the question, so looking lower I'm not seeing anyplace obvious.
    Two mounting points I'm not too excited about - first is on the brake line cable just above the fitting to the caliper. But, I'd be worried about the sensor rotating, but I could make it work. Second option is mounting the sensor on the bottom end of the Lefty and then attaching the magnet to the brake disc. Would this work?
    Thanks for the advice!

    Do a search. There are more than a few threads on it.

    You'll find there's no need to not be excited about the lower leg/rotor method. Several people (including myself) have made it work.

    i have a vetta v100... the sensor is pretty small so i was able to attach it to the brake caliper, just under the top bolt, using a zip tie. the magnet is on the spokes as normal.

    Certainly a question thats been asked before! Thanks everyone for the tips. Looks like I'm supposed to post a pic once I get it mounted.

    I went with a Cateye Strada Wireless and mounted the magnet onto the disc. Just use some good quality glue to stick it on as the rotors do get quite hot. No problems so far.

    I'm loving my Garmin Edge 705. No magnets, no wires, no wheel calibration. 1 device and a mount for each bike. Switch to any bike no fuss! Then down load the data to to the computer after the ride. Upload or download rides from Map My Ride.
