    I've been using A-520s for years. They're weighted so that the mechanism you clip into is usually on top, but not always. If it's not, you can still put your foot on the wrong side of the pedal and...

    I'm using a Fenix 3 (basically a round 920XT with navigation features) and an Edge 800. No quick release kit, the watch stays on my wrist.

    Compared to a dedicated cycling computer the screen is...

    I have a goretex jacket, it will stay in the pack on a day like you're describing. Wearing GTX while exercising at 50 F means stewing in sweat. That's not just GTX, it's anything waterproof.

    More likely the opposite. If you're in the 'wrong' gear, chances are you're either mashing the pedals and taxing your leg muscles, or spinning out and taxing your cardiovascular system.

    But if...

    Your phone's GPS is probably pretty accurate but likely to over-state distance by a few % which is going to make you seem slightly faster than reality. It's just that phones don't have the absolute...

    I get occasional dropouts from my circa 2008 Garmin chest strap. I see cadence spikes but not HR ones.

    This is what the HR data typically looks like, a quick ride around the lake after work.

    No what they need is clip in sandals and gladiator costumes, and anyone who can slice an opponent's face open with their rotor gets an hour off their time.

    Brings a whole new meaning to "vintage!"

    You might buy a bike without disc brakes because it's better than the one you can get with discs. That's why I bought my last road bike. Even then, having come from CX, I would have preferred a...

    Probably it affects your average speed.

    Obviously it shouldn't be doing that.

    For the fun of it, I'd try removing the wheel magnet or un-pairing the speed sensor. It might have been acting up,...

    I've never felt like rim brakes were "unsafe," except in the rain. But safety is a spectrum, not a yes/no kind of thing. Disc brakes are unquestionably more good than rim brakes. Anyone who says...

    So much better if we could all just get rid of our brakes and derailleurs, wear tight jeans, and listen to Kings of Leon.

    Also don't forget to shift to the big chain ring and small cog because you need that gear to climb such a steep hill.

    For most people it's more like driving a Honda (rim brakes) instead of a Ferrari (disc brakes) in rush hour gridlock. Sure, the discs are better, but they're better in a way that doesn't apply to...

    Personally, I have a Garmin. Also have a smart phone but it's barely involved in cycling.

    I have a speed and cadence sensor, a heart-rate monitor, and a power meter on the way. These all...

    Yesterday, I got home from work, and then went out for an evening ride.

    After I left, my girlfriend got a text message from a friend of hers: "I just hit a guy on a bike!" Her friend doesn't...

    You're right. We need better EPO, not safety measures like improved brakes.

    It's interesting. I would be able to make it work. If I was shopping for a new bike and the price (and everything else) was right I'd go for it.

    Way less compelling than disc brakes though.

    Bummer. I was thinking I should sign up for strava to take advantage of this. I could get some free GP4000s.

    You can't really go wrong either way but B'ham would be a better choice. Mount Baker is pretty awesome, as you noticed. Actually the area around Mt Baker is some of the most beautiful anywhere and...

    2% difference is acceptable. Two GPS devices will pretty much always disagree a little about how far they've traveled.

    Sunday I did a ride around Camano Island with a Garmin Edge 800 and a Garmin...

    Vaypor or Vaypor Plus?

    Other than a ratchet vs a boa, what are the differences and are they important?
