I just got DH one and have yet to give it to him. He just got himself a new bike a few weeks ago. But I'm not sure which several inches deep snow packed road he thinks he's going to ride it on. I just about died from the price tag of his bike. I guess it was the same as his response to some of the higher end embroidery machines I'm dreaming of Anyhow, I was wondering what everyone thinks of theirs or their friends? Do you like it? I hope he does. I was unsure which to choose. this lower end or go high end. He doesn't go on trips like the professional bikers so didn't go with the 810 although it looked pretty neat. Something he can go get if he wants in the future.

I have an android phone. I downloaded a free app - endomondo. It tracks time, distance, speed, location and calories burned. It also utilizes my phone's GPS. I bought a heart rate monitor strap and I also keep track of my heart rate. I keep track of splits and find it interesting to compare performance over time during each bike ride.
While I would have loved a new heart rate monitor, this was a more cost effective solution for me. I got a handlebar holder for my phone to keep my phone handy.

Darn it! I should have asked for advice before I bought the dang thing. Now I'm glad I didn't get the more expensive one since that I know he could have used his phone and all I needed to do was buy a phone holder. I have a cheap phone that doesn't get apps so don't know a lot about those but he has a good one for business purposes so I'm assuming his can do what yours does. Grrrrrr.
