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.

Garmin Edge 500 screen repair

My Edge 500 screen started playing up. The screen would appear OK when the unit was turned on, but over the course of a few minutes it would lose contrast to such and extent that it would fade away and become unreadable. A complete reset of the unit and install of later firmware did not cure the f ... Read More »

K Edge fixed stem mount clearance

Just got a Garmin Edge 510 and I'd like to use the K Edge Fixed Stem Mount. I am using a 70mm Truvativ AKA stem and plan on putting the mount directly on top of the stem. Can anyone verify if there would be enough clearance or would I have to get the adjustable K Edge mount? Thanks in advance.Read More »

Any reason not to buy an Edge 500 if HR is the primary use?

I'm looking at training up for some endurance events in 2015. From my reading I think what I really need to be doing at this point is a lot of zone 2 HR training to build my aerobic capacity and speed. This means a HR monitor. I track my rides on Strava using my iPhone and I'm satisfied with ... Read More »

Garmin Edge 510. Screen stuck on "RIDE"

I went to use my Garmin yesterday, put it on the bike and turned it on as usual. I couldn't get past the initial screen that says "RIDE". I tried restarting it, pressing start/stop several times, and I even reset it and wiped all the previous data but it still won't display anything more than the RI ... Read More »

GARMIN Edge 200 - Time

Bought a used Edge 200 so no manual. My current display shows (from top down) Speed/Mileage/Elapsed Time and then at the very bottom either Average MPH or Altitude Gain/Loss.... I'd like to get the time to display at the bottom instead of the 2 current options. Any ideas on how to change the ... Read More »
