I like the technology but I wonder how long it will be before someone gets hurt/killed and the fuckwit driver blames the car for not warning them ?

As I said, I just worry that people will switch off since they assume the car will warn them when they are in danger of hitting a bike.

Better to upload to garmin connect (connect.garmin.com) and get better stats. Moving and overall averages are displayed

On the wheel speed sensor, it should help the GPS in degraded signal situations. If the sensor is off, you get very funny figures.

BTW, the speed and cadence sending units are different, the cadence unit is attached to the left pedal. Both are picked up by the same sensor though.
I've hooked it up once to Garmin connect since I bought the unit in mid October. Been having too much fun riding (71 rides, 690 miles of single track)to bother with undorkulating all the data. Unfortunately, the Edge 200 has no capability to use any wheel or cadence sensors. I guess you have to spend $350-500+ to get accurate gps data for a mtb ride. Screw that noise. Yesterday it was showing .6 miles less than my buddy's calibrated Cateye over the same distance on a 7.75 mile ride. Of course his avg speed was 1mph faster too, even though I was waiting on him at all of the intersections. Sunday will be interesting. First mtb race of the season.

Knock em dead, Killer!

End of my rest week today. 1:10 of easy. I added an extra loop to my normal 'around the block' loop to see if I couldn't get up to 1:30 like I had planned. Nope. The HUGE wind was pushing me for 3/4 of the ride. (and by the time I got to the extra loop, I didn't feel like fighting the wind again)



17Mar is the Devil's Backbone ride down Wintergreen way. Should be fun. Either 30ish mi of mixed surface or 70ish mi of mixed surface ride. Gonna ride the FTB with the semi-slick tubulars on to see how they do. If they suck eggs, I still have time to fix things before the Hilly Billy Roubaix in June.

Something tells me the top guys are deceptively fast. Since they're racing one another we don't get a real good idea how fast they're really going. I'd be so far OTB and then lapped it wouldn't be funny.

I just got back from 3:06. Surprisingly, I feel OK now, and felt OK on the bike. Considering my headache woke me up at 0230, 0300, 0330, 0430, 0530, 0630 and 0700. Heat pack, ice pack, switch, repeat. I finally had something in my stomach and managed to get enough pain killers in me to make a horse feel good.

We'll see what tonite brings. :fingerscrossed

edited to add: Garmin sez I climbed 5383'. That's funny because I topped out at 941' ASL. Lots of rolly hills today. Going flatter tomorrow.

very cool; it's easy to see the lines racers pick during an event, but in this vid i love being able to see the shifts and braking!

3 Speed Internal Gear Hubs

**PARDON THE INTERRUPTION**

Hey guys, I know this thread contains some very knowledgeable cyclists/mechanics who may have some experience with the different offerings of 3 speed IGH. Planning a simple bike path cruiser build for the wife and all the prices are relatively close. Who's the best, Sturmey, Sram, Shimano...or can I not go wrong with any?

Sturmey has the longest history, but I don't think you can really go wrong any direction you go.

I really like this bike.

The 'cross ride du jour. The weather was great and the north wind decided to take the day off. This is the ride I had to bail on a few weeks ago when I blow'd up my rear der real good.
