    These places are no where near the Bay Area. I was asking how living in the Bay Area was different than living in LA and SD. I lived in So Cal for 56 years.

    I don't get your point. You mentioned places in Southern California and places in Northern California. I have been to every place you mentioned so I guess I do get out a lot. Other than there is...

    Campy doesn't do well at OEM but they aren't going away and neither will SRAM. I think SRAM still does a lot of MTB business.

    I am considering this myself for my Android. A neighbor has an IPhone app with a Blutooth cadence and heart rate monitor and is very happy with it. When my Garmin 705 dies I will move to a phone app.
