    What is the device weight? Is it flat on bottom, and can a strap loop over the top without interfering with function?

    You're gonna get this merged in the helmet thread if you're not careful with that. It's all the same to me but just saying, that always happens when a thread turns that way.

    I was happy to set a personal record on a little camel-hump hill segment last evening. My previous was with my fairing bike - sort of a cheat - so it felt like a milestone. Still four seconds off...

    200 pound load isn't all that much to require special wheels.

    I'm enjoying my Vuelta Corsa Pro wheels but I got them at a steep discount. You can get the Corsa Lite at a pound lighter if that's...
