Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Garmin is saying it is a software bug, I hope they are correct. I just don't understand why it is a problem, they have been doing this for a while can't they just use the power software from their previous models?
That's exactly what I was thinking... unless the ANT+ hardware changed causing it to read power incorrectly, that would be a problem

Is that a Forte saddle?

Topeak Racerocket HP

Gets to 100 psi easier than I thought, even the non-hp racerocket reaches 100 psi without an insane level of effort. It replaces a Road Morph G that didn't work so well on my last flat. I can say that it was an upgrade on all fronts.

Got them from eBay last night for a much lower price than the $400 MSRP.

Bought a Garmin Edge 510 and a GSC 10 cadence sensor to replace my self-disassembling, decrepit Edge 300. I'm loathe to replace anything that works, but the 300 had a periodically iffy battery the last three years. Sometimes it would just random shut off during a ride, then when I was about to replace it it would be fine for six months! Now the battery doesn't last a ride, the case is splitting, the face is all scratched up, and the buttons are glitchy. Yeah, replacement time.

Went to the grand opening of the Performance store in Ft Lauderdale. I had a 15% coupon from the mailer and a $20 money card for getting there before they opened at 9am. I got a set of their 2013 Ultra Bibs and Jersey. Actually really impressed for the price. Compression sleeves and legs. No annoying rubber grippers! The total for the two was around $120 which is cheaper than all my other bibs alone.

I have a pair of their new bibs too and like them quite a bit. I have nothing to compare them to though, but think I might pick up another pair for the price.

I usually buy socks or gloves or something every other week or so. This week I went overboard.

Just bought these Pro Transit Panniers off a guy on Craigslist for $10. They're in really good shape and even came with rain covers.
