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

Looks like the 20-off coupon does work but it's not 20% though. I added a bunch of items to my cart to see if it would work but it only took off like 8%. There is prob a cap to it.

Its 20% off the regular price, so if the items are already 12% off. You will get an additional 8%?

In addition:
Nash Bar has 50% off on Easton wheels & minimum 20% off on Continental tires.

the code is: "20-OFF"

but if you plan on spending more than $250 then use 12-EXTRA

i'm still waiting for my Garmin 810 to arrive.. if adapter is needed.. then wouldn't a converter connector work?

These are showing $223 now, but that's still a good deal considering MSRP is $300. I love my empires.

Nope. I'm an analyst for a small brokerage firm in the pet industry. I started biking in Feb/March of this year after a 15 year hiatus. My first pair of shoes was a pair of shimano r106...someone posted on here about ltd ed blue giro empires and I bought them the day they were released for sale.

Comparing the two, the giro's are hands down better. I also own a giro aeon helmet and pair of gloves. I'd recommend the helmet, but I'm not big on the gloves and usually grab my other pair.

Am I stuck on giro products, nope, but the couple I have and like, I will definitely give positive reviews of.

I wasn't actually addressing you. There was a shill comment from a new user - both of his/her two posts on the forum were about some wonderful, miraculous, affordable recovery/compression device. Evidently, mods got around to removing the spam, which made it look like I was talking to you.

Haha, well I have posted a couple of photos of the shoes and talked them up a bit but not that much to be making money from it. Ha, that'd be sweet though. Perhaps I should hit them up.

The 500 doesn't have maps, the 800 and 810 do.

The 500/510 uses a bread crumb trail. You can follow the bread crumb of where you've been previously, or plot courses ahead of time via garmin connect and follow those bread crumb trails. There are no maps to upload. There are no maps to follow that are similar to your car/phone gps.

For the 800/810, if you purchased them through wiggle, it will most likely come with UK maps and you will need to either buy US garmin maps or learn to use OpenStreetMaps, as talked about in this thread or in the dcrainmaker reviews for each device on his blog.

wow.. i'm actually honored that some ppl online would think either me or SpeshulEd would be affiliated with Wiggle. lol.. i wish i could be in the bicycle industry, but unfortunately, specialized have not accepted my resume yet... otherwise it would be so awesome to bike to work from my house.

i'm a BDM in the SSD industry and for the past 13+yrs of my career, i've been working with various industrial, medical, military, and many other companies' engineer to propose and design in our ssd for the application use. so, if your company is looking for industrial SSD in your application, let me know and i'd be glad to PM you my contact.

that being said.. i use to be a line manager for our consumer flash product lines for big retailers like Walmart, Future Shop, etc... so i'm a very froogle shopping guru, as my coworkers like to refer to me by. i'm sure ppl with kids and a cycling addiction can totally relate when i say even dollar spend on anything, we need to maximize the hell out of it.. that is unless i'm like warren buffet.. which last time i checked.. i'm not the powerball winner.

i am successful in my BDM role in doing what i do best; which is helping people, and that in itself bring me the satisfaction that i've helped someone saves a dollar that could be better used elsewhere. so if i helped you out, i'm glad to hear that.. but i'm no where near wiggle.. although SpeshulEd and i should get some more discount code from them for the business we've referred our fellow BF members to buy from them... lol...

if i even get to travel to UK for work.. i'll definitely go and have a good talk with them about that...

happy memorial day...
