Machka, you have raised the bar for my next tour this June-July
Well, as I know you would agree, I would say after what Rowan has been through every last digit is significant and perhaps none more than the first 0.01 KM. Now if you want to determine the sig digits of the distance of my last ride based on my odometer calibration; you could have a teaching moment.
