Trying to confirm... wil a Garmin 305 work with a Trek/Bontrager Duotrap?

If' I'm not concerned about a power meter, can a 305 be used with the Duotrap to continue to log HR, speed and cadence? I can't find anything definitive, and I see information that would indicate...

Late to this, but the Escape is great for two bikes plus gear. We rented one a couple years back. Even with my 63cm frame all I had to do was pop off the front wheel of each bike and the seat posts...

I'm late to this, but we did this in 2007.

Been a few years since I used them, but I used http://www.sportsexpress.com/ to ship my bike. They used FedEx. I first read about them in one bike publication or another.

My wife and I did the ACA Green Mountain Loop in 2006. I thought it was a great trip. Vermont drivers are the best. New York on the other hand.... It wasn't awful, but it was remarkably different...

I was thinking the cost to fly my wife and I and all of our gear to another continent as being the cost prohibitive part. I can do two weeks of comfortable touring in the US/Canada for the cost of...

We drove through Glacier on the way home from the Icefields. Nice, but definitely only a day long in comparison. We drove part of the San Juan Skyway this year and it seemed awfully busy and...

We have the most idiotic governor in the US and one of the 5 most ineffective bureaucracies in the States. Yet Illinois folks keep re-electing them.
