Nope

Before I gave up on Garmin, I loaded their SW on a perfectly clean laptop. Just the OS, freshly installed. Guess what?

Shoot, I just remembered that you do not have and do not want a phone. That rules out Wahoo.

Of course, if you're sold on Garmin, and they do offer some excellent hardware, run a VM on your Mac. I do on mine for a few packages with no issues. Sure, I'd prefer native SW, but, well, you know...

A couple of years ago I switched from Garmin to Wahoo simply because the Garmin SW didn't work properly on my Mac. Garmin admitted there was an issue but offered no promise of a fix.

Luckily, for me, no floods this year. There have been a few years in the past where all my normal routes were closed down, so I was limited to a single out and back ride for about two weeks. And,...

Had this same choice in April. I replaced it without hesitation. Helmets are expensive, but still cheaper than heads.

It's Good

The C17 is the saddle that works for me. It's a very different design from most modern saddles, though. Rubber base with a cotton lined top.

Helmet not fastened: I speak up.
Pedaling in a high gear, grinding using a *slow* cadence? I shut up.

I'm having fun with this thread, but I've also realized that after 45 years of road biking you could post anything, and my response would be:

Not about speed

Cop bikes aren't about speed. It's about access. They've just made the beat cop more mobile.

Not so far

The pads don't reach the very edge, so no. Three years in and no sharp edges. That's why I can't believe any of the "hysteria" stories that usually follow this pattern:

Crash
Injury

The only thing that's safe to say is that neither of us were there, so neither one of us can draw a definitive conclusion. There were three other riders one in front two behind. None of them was her...

I'm riding my Roubaix for the third summer, and mine have never broken, either.

I rode the 4000 ii for a few years and liked them. The 5000s are better in every way save for one: durability. I did flat the older tires occasionally, but the new ones, well, two blowouts in the...

Interesting Look at Rolling Resistance

The rolling resistance site has tested the same tire, a GP 5000, at a variety of pressures. As usual, larger tires roll easier at higher pressures, but not by much. What was interesting to me was the...
