I am going to purchase a Garmin 500 bundle (head unit, HRM, and cadence sensor), but I am on the fence when it comes to a certain particular. I ride a Trek 2.3 shown below in red and black (now minus the bag, the Trek computer and cord, and 2 of the spacers). My quandry is whether to purchase a Garmin refurb bundle in the neutral color which I can get for $270, or get a new, non-refurb model in red and black for $315. I know I am entering OCD poseur land with this, but I think the red and black will look pretty cool with my bike. On the other hand I am paying $45 for looks only.
I know, wrong side and everything else but it's the only one I have at work.
$315 brand new:
Sway me either way.
