    Soon, I'll know if I'm a 60 yr old stud---or dud

    Ok, I know, I live in Texas----the world thinks Texas is flat--------however-------the hills around here look pretty tall to me. After I've climbed them, they FEEL pretty ********* tall. Some are long, some are short.

    I bought a Garmin 305 w/cadence and heartrate. I'm tech challenged----dumb ***----when it comes to technology. If I can figure out how to make it work, I'll be able to know what the grade of the "mountains" here is.

    If I'm a stud, wait for further news,


























    if I'm a dud...............................................

    Did you hear that sound??

    Someone call the IT department... we have a tech-challenged rider here!
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"

    sir: fortunately, in the USA, we are innocent until proven guilty. ; however, there are times in our lives when the truth hurts--kinda like riding a white bike.

    A Garmin 305 determines if you are a stud???

    It used to be more fun when women did that.

    At my age, I've graduated to bikes and grade on hills. Just wait, age is the great equalizer that will even strike the great "Tom Bombidil"---------it may have already struck after seeing your new avatar today.

    For $14.95 at OSH, I got a stud finder that bleeps and blinks when it runs across a stud. Sounds cheaper than a Garmin. Then again, my ex could find them for free.

    Texas is a BIG state and some of it, as in the panhandle, is flat as it gets.

    Tried using one of those once, but it went off everytime I got near it.

    That's the only thing I hate about my 305. It tells the ugly truth, whether I want to hear it or not!

    OP, you'll need to report to NC at once for a stud/dud test. Bring the Moots. <hopin' it's a 55-56>

    What does this Garmin do for women? Can it be used as a stud finder instead of a stud gauge? I don't remember reading anything about this feature in my manual. Maybe I need to pull it out and reread the instructions.......

    My Garmin has a feature that alerts me to pseudo-studs. It's called average speed.

    Well there's this joke about a guy who was granted one wish and begged to be made a stud, and found himself on the underside of a snow tire.
