Did you purchase the cadence sensor, and or heart monitor ?
That's the reason I got it was because you had one! I had bought the 305 back when I was only running and had the heart monitor but never got the cadence sensor. After scanning over DC Rainmaker's review I figured I'd go ahead and get the 500 plus I like the garmin connect. I got the sensor & monitor in the whole package. Just made a couple of rides with it today and it operates similar to the 305. If you haven't yet check out DC's in depth review.http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2009/12/g...th-review.html

I will probably get into more when I get back to work.

Thanks, I'm going to read it now. I have the basics down, and it does seem user friendly.

I just had my Bontrager SSR saddle reinstalled, according to my arss impression on there test thing, that should be the most comfortable. They also gave me a fitting, and needed to raise the saddle a little. The SSR is the saddle that comes stock on the FX 2 . Have to admit it is comfortable, & looks cool..
