Was 29 degrees here in NE Ohio but got in a beautiful 44 miles on the Giro this morning. The Meta is still to new to want to take it out when there may be salt on the roads.

Works great. I have this setup on one of my road bikes. 11-32 with a Deore RD and a 46/34 chainring. I like it a lot. I am not that cadence sensitive so the gaps are a non issue to me.
