This SBGE001 totally rocks. Accuracy on the trail was indistinguishable from daily wear, gaining 1.5 sec / week. Durability is a non-issue. Wore it the entire time in dusty conditions, crashing, fixing flats, setting up camp, getting dirty, etc. Yeah, it's no longer pristine, but I bought it to use, not just to admire. That said, the technology, design, and finish are all very worthy of admiration. I'm really impressed.
Good to hear Dr. Rock. Glad someone else is putting a SD through it's paces. How is the rubber strap holding up? Still the same cheapo in your picture?
