    It's lookin' to be a little moist up in here tomorrow. I've got 80 miles planned. Do I need to do anything if I run my PT through a bunch of rain or are they somewhat moderately waterproof?

    What software is everyone using to view their data? I have Cycling Peaks WKO+ on my old computer but I don't believe I can transfer it to my current laptop.

    Here is the garmin information from my first ride with the new powertap. This should make everyone here feel really good about their numbers.

    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I ran my old one in severe storms and snow, never had any issues.

    Thanks, I'll check it out. Does it work with the Garmin 705?

    The climb is one of the easier ones around here, I'm just really, really, really out of shape.

    I know that someone on here works on GC. Just a recommendation, it would be cool if it calculated decoupling for each interval. That would be really useful for longer (10', 20', 30') intervals, IMO.

    Thanks. Where are the files located for the Garmin or do I need to treat the Garmin like a flash drive? It won't download straight from the Garmin to the program. I can do it using it like a flash drive but it's sort of a pain.

    As aside note, the program isn't nearly as nice as Cycling Peaks WKO but it's free so I can't complain.

    x:\Garmin\History, where "x" is the drive letter that your unit gets assigned.

    Thanks, so just get it straight off of the unit I guess. That works for me.

I never really put much thought in to it, but I've considered wearing it lately so I guess I should figure it out. I have a wired PT and the standard cycleops computer as well.
    I had this happen to me today. I replaced the batteries in the strap and head unit and it seems better now.

    OK.. the GC 705 import error bug is really starting to aggravate me. I'm sitting here with a tcx for a 5:15 ride from today and it insists it was 6:05, so a lot of the metrics are screwed up. This is not the only one, but it's the most recent.

    The bug is basically that GC tries to be "smart" and "fill in" blank data because it's just assuming the tcx file is wrong.

    Does anyone know an easy way to cut out sections of the ride?

    This is to the point where I'm thinking of the parallels / wko route...

    Couldn't you export as a csv file and edit it by hand? Or import it using the garmin software (idk if it is on os x though) and then sending it to gc, not sure if that would help, but it is a possibility.

    Are you using a version of GC with an editor tab? I haven't used it but it looks like you can easily delete portions of the ride. You would still be left with time gaps but the ride time should be correct.

    there's no data in the tcx file because the system is paused. it appears that gc's tcx importer sees a time gap of <x> minutes and say "oh, there must be damage in this tcx file, so we'll guesstimate and make up some data for this stretch".

    this behavior only started with 1.2...
