    Ditto. But it's all about the engine. I have had people on hybrids pass me. Test rides will help you decide which type of bike might suit you best.

    The going price for Garmin Edge 500 is $200. I wonder why strava is chewing up bandwidth. It doesn't seem like it should use much except for uploading the ride at the end.
