Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

I'm wondering about how to replace Garmin magnets (speed/cadence sensor)... I found Icarus magnets on Ebay:
https://www.facebook.com/IcarusCycling

Of course every neodymium magnet will work and will be probably cheaper....more:)

I found also this:

so do you know if EPS magnet will work with Garmin sensor?

Hey I have used the magnets that go on the axle. My tip - use some sort of rubber glue with the magnet. I have had mine come off, even really strong ones that were only attached by magnetic force. I used some sort of rubber glue (just a small amount) like shoe goo which holds tight, and it peels off cleanly too. The magnet plus the glue keeps it locked in place. You can get magnets in 10 packs for like five bucks at hobby and craft stores.

I used some silicone to keep the magnet from moving around too.

Has anyone found a source for magnets shaped similar to the icarus spoke magnet? I haven't had any luck, but I can't imagine they have a supplier that makes them in that shape specifically for them.
