    You can use zip ties for the sensors if you wish. Nothing prevents you from doing that.

    In this review the speed sensor is mounted on the rear hub.

    It can be mounted on either. Garmin doesn't suggest one way or the other. I did it on the front wheel because it's easier.

    It contributes less to a wheel's moment of inertia mounted to a smaller diameter hub. Prolly less than a wheel magnet since it goes as r^2. Mouse nuts either way.

    These use accelerometers and depend on rotating compared to the direction of gravity. They won't record distance or cadence when catching air, or on a trainer in the ISS.

    I guess it's good I don't catch air nor do I plan on riding my bike on a trainer in the ISS .

    I've been pretty happy thus far with my 1000, took a little bit to figure out but I've used it on multiple bikes now (w/old and new sensors) without issue. The text/call display feature is nice as I used to have to really pay attention to my phone while riding (jersey pocket etc.) and stop for every one if i was waiting for a time sensitive call, this feature gives me the freedom to pick and choose which calls/text need my immediate attention without stopping the ride. I also noticed they didn't initially fit in the old K-Edge mounts, this was easily rectified in about 2 minute with a sharp file

    DC Rainmaker's review discusses this at some length and includes a video clip of using the device with gloves.

    The thing that I like about my 510 is the battery life. Not that I am going to be riding for 20 hrs strait but I am the kind that would let his Di2 lapse also.

    I like my 500 - got it mostly because it does what I need and it's cheap. Only thing I wish it had is GLONASS so it would pick up satellite lock faster .

    The dcrainmaker review includes a table showing which units the new sensors will work with.

    As a previous owner of the 200 and current owner of the 510, I see what Garmin is trying to do by moving away from the bike profiles, but I think it's going to backfire and people will probably ask for it enough that newer firmware updates will probably revert to the old bike profile system. I do think some people here are over exaggerating the issue, though. If you read DC Rainmaker's review, as well as some previous posts here, it's a very clear process to select the sensors as you can rename them for each bike. Failing that, it should automatically select the one in closest proximity from your preset pool of paired sensors. The idea that it will suddenly lock onto someone else's power meter is ridiculous. You need to physically pair each sensor in a menu during setup. This only needs to be done once and won't suddenly start giving you your neighbor's cadence numbers.

    However, I will agree wholeheartedly with the criticisms of Garmin's firmware updates. The consistently produce awesome hardware with awesome features, and consistently release buggy firmware updates. I've only had one really bad one where I lost about a month of data. In general, my experience with the 510 has been great.

    Are we allowed to trade stuff on the normal forum? (aka non market place)

    I have new shimano cleats (yellow, 6* i think) I will trade to anyone w/a black k-edge that doesnt fit their 1000

    I may have other various items...have to look in my handy dandy bag at some point in time.

    How did you do that?

    You just need to file down the little tab that keeps the mount arm from moving any further forward.
