There was a Channel 7 car on Anzac Highway this morning filming cyclists - and interviewing some of them. Standard sorts of questions about feeling safe on the road, what do you think of Adelaide's…Continue
"I have a suspicion that some devices are more sensitive than others - even when they are the same model from the same company. I now it isn't the same model, but when looking over results with a Garmin 500 on similar routes, a lot less variance…"
"Taking a look back over the same 30k loop I regularly ride, over the past four months there is a variance in results (using the same Garmin 510) starting from 105m and topping out at 273m. Since there have been no major tectonic events in the…"
"Bicycle Express have the 510 with HR and Speed/Cadence for $349 - BE are now one of the cheapest places to get Garmin gear.
I did the 500 to 510 upgrade - other than the wireless capabilities, one of the things I like best is the larger screen. I…"
"I looked at the K-Edge recently, but decided that the Garmin was a better option as it was cheaper and available for $36 locally.
I haven't had any problems with it and it does the job it needs to - but on other forums it doesn't have the…"
"I think is it semantics at play there. My interpretation of that article he talks about how doping wasn't an option put forward at a team level. He is rather ambiguous about himself, I notice. There are no flat out denials of doping, just vague…"
"Actually, it is mostly folks (male and female) who haven't actually ridden much. I have quite a few friends who, having done no riding since they were children, are rather disdainful of lycra.
On the other hand, I know a couple of people who…"
"I would suggest leaving it in the rice for more than over night. A few days I would say. I know of digital cameras that have been dropped in lakes and revived by being left in a kilo of rice for a week."
"I have been using Oakley Jawbones for several years now and they are great. Not that you can get them any more - Oakley have replaced them with the Racing Jackets, which are basically the same thing."
"I would suggest that you take it back, get a replacement, give it a bit more time and then if the second one proves as bad ditch the idea, but fair enough.
I would say, though, that folks rarely say how great something is - most of the comments in…"
"I have been using an Edge 500 for a few years now and find it to be accurate and reliable. I recently upgraded to an Edge 510 and find that to be just as good with a few techy type bonuses (bluetooth, touchscreen and so forth)
I have to admit that…"
"I have had some serious problems with phone GPS accuracy. When your Garmin is within 7 metres and your phone is within 500 metres, there can be some seriously whacky differences...
Of course, my experiences with phone GPS systems are a couple of…"
"I quite like the SKINS bibs, just in terms of comfort.
I can also say that compression wear works to reduce injuries while you are exercising - just wear some shorts over the top for off-the-bike exercise and you won't feel like one of the men…"
