Strengths:    Does pretty much everything the top end garmin does for a 1/4 of the price.
Nice big display
Waterproof
Cheap
Fitment is easy and secure
Heart rate monitor fits well
Can use it like a bike "sat nav" when on the roads.


Weaknesses:    The software/website you upload data to can be slow/buggy sometimes
Maps arent great for offroading.
Cadence sensor can be temperamental (got mine working well now)
Battery life is a shorter, but i guess that's to do with the colour display.


Bottom Line:   
I received this as an Xmas present, after deliberating over this or the basic Garmin 205(?) I just couldn't say no to all the features, the colour display, the maps, the fact it came with heart rate and cadence sensors etc etc.

I have used it on every ride since then, most of the time i just hit the record button at the beginning and again at the end of a ride. I have used it to follow a friends GPX file/route, which was good, although it did involve more looking at the screen to make sure i was going the right way (this function is probably more designed for road riding).

The website interface has come on leaps and bounds from when i received the unit, and is constantly being updated with new features, and being streamlined. I havent used all the functions on the GPS unit yet, bt i plan to try out some of the training and "buddy" training features in the near future.

At the minute there is no link up to Strava, but you can download your tcx or gpx files and upload them manually (can be a pain to do so).

Since my last ride, the navigator nipple button thing has torn, but I have initiated my warranty return and just need to pop it in the post.

All in all I'd buy one again if i needed to, and would advise my friends to buy one over a Garmin.

What size HD for a 5'9" rider that doesn't want a long stem (50-65mm)

I'm currently riding a medium SL with a 90mm stem and 711mm bars. I'm right on the border for sizing and do not want to go too short for fear of a cramped cockpit with a 50mm stem. Just curious to see what people are running in my range. It will mostly see aggressive trail riding and some lift ... Read More »

Help a Whiskey 50 rider out--which bike??

Everyone, I need advice for the Whiskey 50 geared race coming up in a couple of months. I’ve never ridden Prescott trails and want to be sure that my racing mount can handle the trails. Ideally, I would ride my Titus Fireline Exogrid 29er with 100mm Reba fork. My tire choice are Maxxis Cr ... Read More »

Bryton Rider 50 GPS Review

I am lucky enough to have got my hands on a brand new Bryton Rider 50 Cycling GPS unit. This unit has just been released in Australia and complements the limited range of GPS cycling computers currently available. Its good to see another company enter the arena giving cyclists more choice. I will ... Read More »

50 psi in RS Revelation fork for low-weight rider?

I weigh 130 lbs with gear and have a 2010 RS Revelation 150mm fork on my Ibis Mojo. I am running 30% sag in back (as this is a DW link bike), and some MTBR posters have suggested that I should have a similar amount of sag up front, even though the RS manual talks about 15-25% sag. So assuming th ... Read More »
