Nice! 190 miles with about 6500ft of elevation in two days. Sounds like a good time!

Why don't you bust out some cardio and ride with her? Endurance is one of the things that come to us as we age.

The couples who train together stay together.

I just saw a short video clip so I'm not sure what else happened. I couldn't tell if it was deliberate or just a total f-up. Looks like he ended up getting silver in the omnium. Cav has to be way too experienced to make such a noob mistake like that.

Agreed. He's still bitter that Wiggins left him off the team.

I get the impression he was desperate for a medal. I watched the Lose and Out and he got DQ'd for passing inside the sprinters lane. Again, noob mistake. Or desperation move.

Hey Mr Tonka - I think I remember reading you are in Fl. Are you all in the line of fire of the storms heading in? Staying safe?

Looks like TD 9 is headed into the Gulf. Hopefully it'll dissipate or even break up in the gulf. Either way, we should be getting lots of rain.

I'm thinking of getting a Garmin for my bike. I currently ride a Trek and have a Nano 2 computer which tracks most bike functions plus HR, cadence, intervals, etc. I also want to add the Garmin varia rearview radar which is compatible with the Garmin head unit. Anyone use a Garmin. Looks like the Edge 500 for $399 has most of the cycling functions I need and GPS capability.

I like the garmin computers. you can configure screens any way you want, have different bikes, different activities - you name it. very customizable. also syncs with Strava and has live segment updates and all that crap. I have a 500, and after a while switched to a 510. the wireless cadence and speed works very well. I have mine set up so I can switch between bikes (tire size) and activities (mtn bike, road ride, winter ride) as I want to see different data.

I have a integrated duo trap sensor on my Trek Domane which captures Cadence, HR and Power. Can the Garmin capture this data. I ride a lot of roads in my area which I am very familiar with so I don't need a Garmin to map a course. I only ride a road bike on long rides so switching to another bike is not an option. I ride a hybrid on our local trails which are near by. I really appreciate your input as I am just trying to understand how a Garmin works and if it is worth a $450 investment. thanks.

What sensors do you use for Cadence, HR and Power? Garmin can capture all of those metrics, just not sure of which cadence and HR sensors are compatible. I'm fairly certain all power meters will be compatible.

Mnoob gave you a great overview of Garmin capabilities. Garmin has a plethora of algorithms built into their software which all runs from their devices. Their wireless speed and cadence sensors are great. No more magnets on the spokes. Just a small disk attached to the inside of your crank arm for cadence. Speed is first determined by GPS, then by a speed sensor mounted on your hub. All very light and non-intrusive.

Switching between bikes is a non issue since your speed is determined by GPS. (unless you are in a tunnel or parking garage) Spend another $32 for an additional cadence sensor and all you have to do is take your Garmin device with you on which ever bike you ride. Though it takes ver little effort and about 25 seconds to switch a cadence sensor from one bike to the other.

The GPS isn't for directions. It's for data collection. Speed and elevation mainly. But then you also will get graphs for your speed, cadence, power, elevation, heart rate, etc... that all correlate with your mapped route. So you can see where exactly your top speed was on your route, or where your cadence sinks lower than desired.

If you like collecting data, logging the miles you put on your gear, using a Garmin device and Garmin connect is great. I use a Fenix 3 as an everyday watch, but it also has the same functionality as pretty much the Edge1000. I have all my gear in Garmin connect so i add the gear i used during the ride and it compiles the mileage for each piece of gear. I know how many miles i have on my wheels, Tires, bib shorts, chain, components, bikes, etc...

$450 has been well worth it for me. I use a power meter and heart rate monitor and ride a road bike, mtn bike and indoor trainer. I keep the speed and cadence sensor on the trainer bike and a cadence sensor on my mtn bike. My road bike has power meter pedals which keep track of cadence. Over the last 100 or so rides, i've only had GPS/speed issues on my road bike on one ride. And it dropped for about 15 seconds.

I doubt you'll regret it. It's got so many more features that you're unaware of that you'll probably grow to realize that you didn't even know you wanted them until you learned of them.

Let us know if you have any other specific questions.

If it is Ant+, it should pick up your sensors. I have the speed and cadence sensor from my old Specialized computer, which is Ant+, and it works fine with the Garmin. I think it only worked with the newer Edge 510, and not the 500. The newer version may have better compatibility.

I don't use the mapping either. What I like is that you can customize "pages" and scroll through them on your ride. For instance, when on your road bike, you could have the main page, or screen view, with power, HR, cadence, and speed. I like to keep the number of data shown to a minimum on the main page, since the more you add, the smaller the font gets. and, you know, age and all... On a second screen you can have average sp, power, hr, cadence, etc. on a third screen, you can have max values. So many options, can pretty much set it up however you want, with any piece of data

you can do all that for several different activities. have one set up for road riding, one for mountain biking. just select Road or Mtn, or what ever you call the different activities. if I select Road, I have one set of screens and data. if I select Mountain, different data. (on the mountain bike I can see grade, elevation gain, crap like that).

Again, you pretty much pick what you want to see and how you want to see it. And, believe it or not, setup is remarkably intuitive and simple.
