I ended up doing something similar. I got a Mophie Powerstation Mini and a 1 ft cord with a left angle micro usb plug, and it fit very neatly with my Android in my top tube bag. Its 2500mAh is good...

Just to throw a coda on this, I thought I'd mention that I ended up getting CatEye's Strada Digital Wireless. I got the version with cadence, but skipped the heart monitor. I'm using Strava's app...

The one time I did Solvang Spring (in 2011), it rained for something like 130-140 miles. Despite being an easier course, it was the most miserable cycling experience I've ever had. By the end, I...

Yes! Last October, I saw a ram on that closed stretch, just tooling around what looked like a nearly vertical cliff face about thirty (40? 50?) feet above the road. Never seen one in these...

Yeah, I should get a GPS, but I've been lagging on that, partially because I'm not totally confident that it'll get a signal up in the mountains where I ride. If the Trion had really impressed me, I...

I took some new lights out for a test ride last night. I mounted Cygolite's Trion to the left of the stem, and a P-Rocket Cree XP-G R5 450 from ShiningBeam to the right of my wireless Cateye. ...
