I use those as well. I don't wear many cycle specific clothes, but the boxer briefs are something that works really well for me.

I've seen that as well. This is part of why counting calories isn't as exact as it seems. It's a good tool, but very few people down to a margin of error less than 200 calories (approximation on my...

I've seen mixed reviews on the 17 hours of the Edge Touring. Anyone have any personal experience with that? It's my first choice if I buy a dedicated GPS.

Other than the 2 days on a charge, that's almost exactly what I'm testing out, except that I'm charging the batter during the day using my dyno hub. Not sure why the roll eyes.

I would say that's very likely. Whenever I take in electrolytes on hot rides, my hydration seems to stay in the right range easier.

How do you figure? By my calculations I could get a 15 hour day on a full charge (assuming battery usage is linear... that's why I'm going to do further experimentation).

Over a 1 1/2 hour ride, I used about 10% of my battery. Further experimentation is needed, though.

I've seen quite a few reports of this occurring. I think it's a pretty common side effect. Personally, I'm going to need some pretty compelling evidence if my doctor wants to prescribe me statins.
