    Una, I noticed the 550 has been discontinued and the 550T seems to be a replacement. Was your unit glitchy? I like the more versatility to something like the Oregon or eTrex units. Plus the...

    Honestly I became way to reliant on a car. We have 2 boys (almost 2 years old and the other is 7 weeks) so we kept my wife's CR-V, but there really wasn't a reason we needed 2 cars. Since having...

    Interesting, I am looking at those now as well. Thanks for throwing those on my radar, never thought a hiking one would have the ability to use a cadence sensor. Plus some gravel trails and such...

    Thanks for the thoughts. I am leaning more towards the 500 with the cadence/speed sensor. I have a HRM that works with my phone but that is bluetooth...but it works well and I can record only my HR...

    Techy gadget nerds - GPS device

    So I wanted to ask my fellow Clydes and Athenas what they like. I am looking at getting a GPS tracking device for my rides and want something I can dial in on my road bike (cadence, speed, etc) and...

    HA! I am 6', however I have all arms and legs and a short torso. A 58cm bike caused me to hunch over, but on a 60 I fit a lot better. Plus the 60s top tube was longer which is what I really...
  9. Said goodbye to an old friend and made 2 new!

    So recently my wife and I got rid of one of our cars. It would have cost a few grand to get the car running completely and ready for winter again, so instead of trying to resurrect a 2000 Camry with...

    800 Lumens flashing seems to get all the driver's attention in my area. I'll even get some flashing their high beams at me like I can turn down my lamp. When I ride dirt trails or in unlit areas,...

    I thought about that too after reading some stuff on it, however I don't have the original bar or the original shifters anymore since it was all trashed when I got the bike. Those bars are wider...

    I love the bike, even with a drop bar I am still very upright since I am running the stock stem. The only thing I might change is to put cross levers on the tops since that will probably be where I...

    So for costs sake, at least this winter, I am sticking with 26" wheels. I did score a CL buy of Nokian Extreme 294s and looking to get a spare bike for parts (figuring having 2 sets of wheels, one...

    Commuting in snow - 26" vs 700c?

    So my wife and I went to 1 car, which means I commute my butt the 4.5 miles to work. My ride takes me either along a large busy street (w/ and w/o a bike lane) which leads to industrial/commercial...
