Question about Vetta Cycling
I have an older/simple model of a Vetta bike computer. No matter how closely I align the magnet to the spokes to register speed, I don't get any speed readout. It has a brand new battery and shows the display; just won't give me a speed readout.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

You can use almost any magnet with a speed sensor because they all 'register' a loop of the wheel with a magnet field sensor. The magnet must be no more than 8mm from the sensor to register the field. IF it is an older magnet, you might need to get it closer to the sensor. I always touch them, then move one or the other away just enough so they don't bump. Works every time. :)

I had this problem as well. What I found was that the transmitter path from the magnetic sensor to the computer is very narrow, a 15 degree cone. Reposition your computer to fall within this cone. It should pick up the signal.
