1000, the screen is by far the easiest to read and the menus are easy to operate.

Light action cleats are the same shape as zeros, just a softer spring and no float adjustment. Pedals can be used interchangeably between zero and light action, they're 100% compatible.

I carry a 2.4 tube in my back pocket or inside a bottle cage pod. If you open the valve, squeeze all the air out and wrap it up tight with rubber bands, the tubes really are not that large

It seems like the problem is that they were allowed to trademark the name of a town in the first place. It doesn't make sense to allow companies to trademark the name of a city.

There's no way to get the data back, my 705 did the same thing on an important race file, I tried everything, the data just isn't there. I dumped the 705 and my 800 been perfect.
