Strengths:    Fantastic entry level bike. Canadian quality, decent components, nice looking, quality paint work and welding.

Weaknesses:    Noisy tires, hard seat.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for the money, it will serve you well for many years. Shifting is smooth and accurate, steering feels perfect. Brakes took a little while to get worked in, at first the disc brakes felt weaker than the rim brakes on my old bike, but after about 200km of riding, it now stops very very good! I did not like the knobby tires it came with. Fantastic for extreme off roading, but for my style of mixed dirt and tarmac, I upgraded to a pair of smoother Kenda tires. Also the seat was a bit hard after long rides, that was another quick and easy upgrade. Its an easy bike to ride, great for long trips or daily commuting.

Strengths:    Best looking bike for entry level, solid frame, reasonably priced, Rocky Mountain!

Weaknesses:    Probably the grips and tires. Wouldn't hurt to upgrade the forks. As expected really on this type of bike.

Bottom Line:   
The shocks don't have a lockout but if you even know what that is then you are probably going to be upgrading them. Just a fun all around killer looking starter bike I would definitely recommend.

Date Reviewed: May 25, 2010

Strengths:    Nice looks, sturdy frame, and the disc brakes (which i've never used before).

Weaknesses:    None so far. I'll let you know if one shows up.

Bottom Line:   
Great beginners bike. I'm using to get to and from school everyday, which is a 20 km ride! Ive just started using it, and everything runs really nicely. I just hope it keeps up! Its not a bike for a hardcore rider, just an beginner or intermediate rider. You may want to upgrade as you go along, but i dont plan to.

Strengths:    Nice beefy frame, Works nice, Looks good

Weaknesses:    Entry level bike, but we all have to start somewhere. Handle grips made my hands go numb. front shock is not made to take alot of hard abuse.

Bottom Line:   
First bike to get into mountain biking, I have not had it long so will update if opinion changes. Had some good runs around town and a little dirt, fun and got me back home.

I seem to go through about 3-4 bike mounts a year for my Edge 605 and while it is still under £10 to replace the mount I was wondering if anyone had come with an alternative way of mounting this unit to a bike.. that little release clip is the bit that keeps breaking off... any suggestions appreciat ...

A way to delete a lap on Edge 510?

Like the title says....Raced today and didn't stop my Garmin till almost 15 minutes after I crossed the finish line. It was set to auto lap so I'd like to delete the extra lap in order to get a more true file. Any ideas? Edit: Never mind I figured it out. Export TCX file. Modify by deleting lap t ... Read More »

On the Garmin Edge 500/510 Fence

Pretty simple question. With the $50 rebate on the Edge 500, the net price difference would be $80 in favor of the 500 vs the 510 bundles. I'm all for saving cash, but still curious from users if the 510 is worth the extra dough in the long run. The 500 fits the bill for what I need, though the 510' ... Read More »

Lost Garmin Edge

I lost my blue Garmin Edge 500 on July 1st, I guess in the Doudy Draw parking lot. The saddest part is that the day before I rode Kenosha to Breck and hadn't uploaded the ride stats yet! If anyone happened to find it I would be eternally grateful to get it back. I lost a pair of Novara full finger g ... Read More »
