    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...

    Garmin for double century?

    Hey all. I've been thinking about getting a Garmin, or some other GPS computer, but I'm concerned about battery life. I ride double centuries now and then, so I need something that I can be...

    Oh yeah, for sure. I did Solvang Fall later that year, and the Grand Tour a bunch of times. I'm slow, but I'm hooked.

    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, recently I saw a doberman-looking thing up on the ridge lining the canyon that sounded liked it wanted nothing more out of life than to sprout wings, fly down and rip me to shreds. It paced me...

    What kind of dogs?

    This sounds like a different location, but I have seen dogs on Little T. In particular, shortly before the short bridge before the wildlife waystation, I've seen a pitbull off...

    I've been using Cytomax for years, which I like, and have only used Heed twice, both times because that's what PlanetUltra offered at their double centuries. Both times, Heed gave me massive...

    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. ...

    That sounds like a great ride, jmX. I have yet to tackle GMR.

    I went up 39 yesterday myself. Started in Sunland, worked my way out to Azusa, then all the way up 39 to Angeles Crest. Even though...

    Malibu Hills Route Advice?

    Other than Potrero and the Pepperdine-to-Oxnard stretch of PCH, I'm not very familiar with the cyclability (warning: not a word) of the Malibu hills. I want to change that, and I'm hoping some folks...

    For what it's worth, I'm changing my mind on the Halo. I bought mine in October, so this is my first Summer with it, and it's just not getting it done. It's probably okay on the flats with a...
