Fenix 3 HR and Wahoo cadence sensor

Fenix 3 is supposed to be able to pair with Ant+ accessories. I had a Wahoo cadence sensor prior to the watch. Having an issue getting thelse two to talk to each other. Anyone else have any luck?

How important is the weight of your bicycle?

I was told it would happen. Ride one brevet and it's like Lay's Potato chips...you will want another.

I was on my LHT and towards the end, the 37 lb bike seemed like a tank. Started looking at a...

Specialized Roubaix?

Anyone had any experience with this carbon fiber bike for long distance / rando style riding? Looking at one now. Curious on road vibration and fatigue after a 10 hour ride. Thanks in advance.

Garmin fenix 3 HR

Anyone used this yet and what are your thoughts? I hike and bike and this seems like a good investment for both of these activities. Most curious about battery life.
