Define "early". My ride this morning started in moonlight.

Well given that all those guys are half my age or less, it's probably unrealistic, but it's something to shoot for.

Set the alarm for 3:30 so we could make an Independence Day run over Jones Pass.

Has anybody got any experience with the wahoo units for the iphone? It's getting *wildly* divergent reviews on Amazon.

No experience with the Wahoo, but I use the iBike power meter and have had great success with it over the years. I'm now using their iAero power meter but will most likely switch to the iDash system when my phone contract expires in October. Prices seem close to what the wahoo setup goes for with a few upgraded options depending on what you are looking to get out of it.

Honestly, my ambitions are pretty modest. My mileage is getting up there - I can knock out 50 miles without *too* much trouble, and I'm aiming towards knocking out my first couple of centuries later in the fall. But I'm not 'really' a cyclist.

I'm a triathlete DON'T HIT ME!

The point of all this being is that I'm not sure I'm ready for a power meter - I'm not sure that this cat-6 fred-class racer is ready for that kind of data. I wouldn't know what to do with it. The only thing that motivates me towards a power meter is that every cycling workout I read starts out with, 'Turn on your power meter and...'


I've had pretty good success just doing intervals, so far. I haven't felt the need to measure my power. But cadence would be nice.

They can be overwhelming and much of it is unnecessary if you're not competing regularly. I've used one just due to the fact that my coach trains me with it and my heart rate zones. (although I typically train using HR, rather than power numbers) Still, just offered it as an alternative than the wahoo.

I recently got the Wahoo HRM strap and their ANT adapter for the iPhone. So far I'm happy with it -- I've been using Runkeeper to log runs and rides, and just wanted to add heart rate data. The Wahoo does that just fine.

Can't comment on the full-boat speed / cadence / case stuff or their own software. My phone doesn't have the battery life or GPS reliability for me to want to move away from the eTrex + CatEye combo I use for that stuff now.

Now HR data I can use...

Oznerol, thanks for the review!

I just got the Garmin 500 Bundle with the GSC-10 Cadence and Speed sensor. I have, but haven't used, the HR monitor. I read on the Garmin forums that the GSC-10 unit fails often, and that the unit of choice to replace it is the Wahoo. So if my Garmin unit bites it, I'll try the Wahoo.
