    I like having maps on my handlebars, and my girlfriend likes the live tracking feature. I really like riding my bike in new places. I'd do that without a mapping unit, too; I'd use a paper map or...

    If you have a Garmin, they have a training plan set up to prepare for and do a century. You can download it to your device, progress through the workouts, and enjoy the rest days.

    I can't say about the power lines, but you can hit the GSC with your heel and knock it far enough out of alignment that it won't "see" the magnet on your crank arm, and get the same result you're...

    Truth is I'm only going that fast when I pass you, I slow down and recover once I pull ahead and out of sight.

    You'd think so but I'm trying to get to the bottom of a completely unrelated issue and some advice I'm getting is to replace the battery in mine because when it gets close to the end the transmitter...

    I think I've got the same chest strap. It's the older one, right? Still works so I've never wanted to fork over the money to replace it with basically the same thing.

    When was the last time you...

    Here's a photo (thanks, Google!) of somebody crossing the Sauk with a bike. Personally I would stand the bike on its rear wheel, holding it by the handlebars, with the bike in front of me, and not...

    PSA: Monte Christo Ghost Town

    If you want to see Monte Cristo, go now.

    The "trail" is a hard-packed dirt road. There is one crossing of the Sauk River at about 1.5 miles, on a fallen tree, plenty wide. Bikes are allowed on...

    A lot of people doubt that you're spending hours at a time riding under a severe oxygen debt without feeling it. I'm one of them.

    If your HRM wasn't working properly, that could explain all this....

    I have a good friend who hiked 110 miles of PCT last year for her 50th birthday. She bought two Anker battery packs (to replace a solar panel). She said the first one was a dud, but the second...

    Not really. No offense, but especially in Florida, it doesn't take much fitness to ride a bike for a lot of miles. It can if you're pushing yourself but you can cover 40 miles at a very easy pace...

    I'm going to rent a power meter for a week. I have a specific need for one but it's not ongoing. Anyway, you might consider doing the same if possible, it will give you an idea what you're getting...

    Scosche Rhythm+ is generally pretty well respected, I think. From what I've heard and seen if an optical monitor is going to work (well) it'll be that or a Mio. (Another company buys Mio sensors, I...

    Hi, Pugwinkle;

    I'm using a Garmin Edge 800 bike computer. I got it almost 5 years ago. Back then I had a really awful smart phone that wasn't able to be a good bike computer. Plus it rains a...

    Neither.

    I don't have an Apple phone, their products are overpriced because they're selling a lifestyle/image. And honestly a watch really isn't ideal as a bike computer. Screen real estate is...

    A smart phone has a lot of things going for it as a bike computer but it's not for everyone. For starters it's not water proof. If you want to see your speed and other things while you ride, you...

    Yeah, it's got GPS data recording. :) No maps though. I mainly bought it to replace my hiking GPS. I almost never used it to navigate, just to record and give me stats. Hiking GPS = 11 oz with...

    I guess it has to be a personality thing. I'm not that kind of person so maybe I'll never understand. But I can grok wanting/enjoying a clean look for the bike. :)

    People say this a lot but I've never understood it. I feel like I spend 99 % of my saddle time looking at the road ahead and my surroundings, with the last 1 % of the time glancing at my bike...

    I don't see why not. Looks like they're calling it a good mountains riding computer because there's a barometric altimeter, but unless you ride on flat roads that can be just as useful on a road...

    As for the title of the thread, I'm still using my Edge even though I have a smart phone and a very advanced fitness watch. It's waterproof, mounts easily/securely on the stem, and the battery lasts...

    That's a much bigger problem. :(

    My shiny new Garmin watch picks up some steps when I ride over rough pavement. I'd prefer if it didn't but can live with it. But the activity tracker stops...

    The reason for having a pedometer is to know how active you are. If cycling gets counted as more steps, it'll show that you were active on days you ride your bike. Riding a bike is being active. ...

    Thanks for the link. I've got an Android phone but need to figure out how to do about the same thing. Would be very very useful. :)
