AS it counts the number of turns of the wheel, it doesnt matter. However, the sensor must be placed on th efront fork so that there is just enough clearance to the magnet for it to work. Also, the ties holding the sensor to the fork should not interfere with the spokes.

Your documentation should state where to place it depending on what system it connects to, On my bike it is about two inches from the inner axel. For a more specific answer for your setup you probably need to either ask the manufacturer, or specify which system you have and hope someone here is familiar with that system.

What's the difference between high positive offset and medium offset on wheels for jeeps.


the off set of a wheel is the distance the centre of the rim is set from the face of the hub
it is used when the tyre fitted hits inside the wheel well and more space is needed to facilitate the turning before the wheel fits
IN effect it moves the load on the bearings from the larger inner bearing out towards the smaller outer bearing and that increases the load on the stub axle
medium off may be 1/2 inch out and high off set may be an inch
the gain is a wider track for better stability on slopes
the disadvantage is increased bearing failure , stub axle failure and tyre wear from wheel geometry problems ( wheel alignment)
there is negative off set where the centre of the rim is moved towards the vehicle
rim off set is what you want instead of spacer plates which increase the load on the studs causing them to snap off
Talk with a tyre shop to get the best for what you want

Are 2005 LaCross rims proper fit on 2004 LaSabre


THe items here to check are stud dia and pitch All studs fit in the center of the holes. Next check that the rims when fitted miss the brake calphers. Next check for rim off set. How far the rim extends past the center of the bolt plate . If it is to the outside it places extra load on outer wheel bearins causing premature failure and too far in will rub on chassis parts. Check with a tyre dealer for accurate advice as if you fit the incorrect rims you will violate the safety code for the vehicle.

I need a replacement rear wheel rim for my Edgewood lx hybrid


you didn't specify why you need a new wheel, is it just out of true, is it broken, is it bent?
If the wheel just needs to be trued this is an easy fix for most mechanics. You can even do it yourself using the brake pads as a guide. If a spoke is broken, this can be easily replaced and retrued. If the rim is actually bent or broken, then the rim should be replaced.
Rims can be replaced but they require a good mechanic that has the skill to relace the wheel, true it and tension it properly and at a minimum a decent mechanic with these skills will charge $25-50 for the labor. Assuming that the mechanic can get the exact same rim you are looking at about $20-50 for the rim. If that particular rim is not available then they can get something similar but it will most likely require a new set of spokes because rims are different thicknesses. Most shops charge $1-3 per spoke times 32 or 36 spokes for a typical wheel.

The easiest fix is to just buy a prebuilt wheel, these will typically run about $25-65+ for a complete wheel (not including tire, tube and rimstrip).
Your local bike shop/Diamondback Raleigh dealer will be able to help you determine what is best for your situation.

I am need of new tires. The rims are Mavic, but I’m confused about sizing. The tire is a tubular. I think the size is 27 inch. How to I make sure I get the right size?


If you have a tubular tire (also called a sew-up), and you know that you have full-size wheels (either 700c or 27 inch), you need a 700c tubular. Tubular tires only come in a few sizes and the most common is the 700c. A tubular tire is a unique type of tire that usually has a tube sewn inside. This gives the tubular a round cross section and means that it must be glued onto the rim.

700c and 27 inch are actually different sizes (27 inch is slightly larger diameter than 700c), but they're often confused because they're so close and they're both found on road bikes - or have been over the years. These days, the common road-bike wheel and tire size is 700c. But, people still sometimes mistakenly refer to it as 27 inch, which was popular 25 to 30 years ago.

So, the bottom line is, if you get a tubular called a "27 inch" or "700c," it will be the same size and it will fit your wheel just fine. The size that you don't want is "650c." That size will be too small for your wheels. If you have something besides a tubular tire (if your tires aren't glued onto the rims, you don't have tubulars), to determine the size simply look carefully at the sidewalls. You'll find the tire size marked there if you look closely.

Blackburn atom 4.0 does not read speed


The magnet has to interrupt the pickup and the transmitter communicates it to the computer, so settings are irrelevant for basic function.

Take the computer off its mount and hold it closer to the transmitter to see if that helps.Then take the magnet off the wheel and wave it by the pcikup to see if that helps.

If neither works, consider that weak batteries in either unit can cause it to fail. Some units also have a minimum and maximum distance within which they'll work.

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!


Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.

I need the dimentions for a 95 swift rim... the inside diameter hole i already know it is a 13in 4x4.5


You've just about stated all the numbers that you can ever possibly need! Yes, the standard 13" wheel is 4.5" wide, has 4 stud holes intended for 12mm studs which are on a pitch circle diameter (PCD) of 114.3mm (the Japanese version of 4.5"). The only thing you haven't mentioned is the offset of the rim. This is the distance from the mounting hub face of the wheel to where the middle of the wheel is (halfway between the outer and inner rim edges. For a front wheel drive car, this number is usually always positive and I think it is 35 or 45mm for this wheel. If you have an original steel wheel, it should be stamped on the outer rim area near the valve (along with other identifying info).
