    It is certainly possible. I'd wager your problem is because you're powering up the device indoors and/or in an area where satellite reception is poor. Try powering it up outside and see what happens.

    Pro cycling has a completely different structure and monetization model than any other sport, which leads to a lot of its issues. UCI (the cycling governing body) really has no "pull" over promoters...

    Do you know how long it would take before caliper brakes wouldn't be supported? It would take more than a decade even after widespread adoption. And there's nothing that says discs will have...

    It's hard to say which of those "poles" is true. Personally, I think drivers are getting increasingly aggressive against everybody -- cyclists and other motorists alike. Cyclists often overreact in...

    The Pro4 line added a number of different tire versions. Many feel the Pro4 Endurance is a good all-around tire. Alternatively, every major tire comes in 25 mm, such as the Continental GP4000SII.
