    Awesome show guys, in regards to computer I would always go with the Garmin, you guys mentioned that the only good use of GPS is for trail search and that is the least important purpose. I´m a new biker and obsessive about training and analyzing the data. Sure, you got your cadence sensor, speed, power and heart rate. But how about combining all that data and applying it to a specific trail or part of a road, and taking it a bit further, compare all that data. On that specific part of the trail, to another person’s data. Unless you actually started together and finished together you can´t do that without GPS. After every ride, I analyze my data and look for people that have done that trail and compare my performance to them. I use Garmin Connect, Strava, Endomondo and Training Peaks and all of those pages can connect to Garmin product, just plug and play and you are done. And the best GPS by far is Garmin.

    • Thanks

      As far as GPS. It can be very powerful for data collection as you stated. We do like the Garmin products
