A real insignificant problem but a relevant question. I transported my bike 30 miles each way in the back of my tesla for a service. I rode just prior to the service with a fully functional bike odometer but when a rode the next day the odometer was non functional. I took it back to a closer bike store and expected it to be a battery issue but it turned out the magnet on the wheel quit functioning. The bike store guy could not understand it but replacing the magnet was a quick fix. The second day transport was in an ICE vehicle. The good news is a bike does fit very easily in the trunk with the seats down but is it possible that the battery can demagnetize a small magnet. Probably coincidence but appreciate input.
