C50 (PR11)
DA10, (12/23 casette)
Lightweights (20/20s - buying them tomorrow - finally chose them instead of Reynolds)
Vittoria Corsa CX tubs
SLR XP
DA SPD 7800 pedals
Colnago (WR Compositi) carbon seatpost
ITM Millennium stem and Millennium non-anatomic bar
Origina Elite Ciussi silver bottle cages
Sigma BC1200 computer (wired version - assuming I can get a magnet onto the LWs)

It's light, but I also want reliable, raceable parts that are not going to give me grief halfway thorugh a race (hence the cages, the stem/bar and the wired computer).

Lucky enough to also own my other dream bike - a C40HP/DA9/Ksyrium SLs. This is now my training rig :oops:

After we announced that we have an option to laminate a tiny magnet into the rim, a couple of LW owners asked if we can put a magnet into "old" Lightweight´s rims.

We now have some experience with that procedure and can offer all Lightweight owners to send their wheels to us and have a magnet installed in the rim of the wheel. It´s a little bit more expensive than to have it laminatetd into a new rim, but it´s possible... otherwise we advise users to glue a small TUNE magnet to a spoke (and - if this is not available- here´s another tipp: The magnets from Ksyriums fit just perfectly to the shape of our spokes...).

Just to let you know :D

CarbonSports -

I thought we weren't supposed to put magnets on the spokes - or is it OK to do so if they're the right shape?

Thanks
