Strengths:    Everything is solid... this is the 3rd year i have been using these gloves.

Weaknesses:    Nothing.. however little padding could have been given. but im not complaining

Bottom Line:   
This will be the 3rd year using these gloves. Im just so impressed. I have used these gloves during city rides, trail and downhill rides, and also marathon XC race and the list goes on. They just rock. They are worth every single $ i spent. I bet they can handle one more year. its a great buy.

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2001

Strengths:    These gloves are probably the best I have ever used for two reasons. The first reason is that they are durable, unlike other gloves i have used they do not rip easily and the seams are well stitched. The second peice that I like is the venting. While these gloves are ful finger they still manage to keep my hands fairly cool while I ride.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness I found with these gloves is that after using them for a while they do build a little bit of moister on the palms an do not grips as well as other gloves I have used.

Bottom Line:   
the bottm line on these gloves is that for a decent price you get just that a decent pair of gloves. if i had to choose between these and the dirtpaws which i used to ride though i would have to go with the dirtpaws. they fit a little more snug and look a little bit cooler.

Date Reviewed: November 14, 2000

Strengths:    Great balence between comfort and padding, very flexible, looks cool, and doesnt seem to want to rip at all after countless falls that would shred outher gloves. Fairly cool even though all black with lots of padding.

Weaknesses:    Hard to clean, I can never seem to get this absouloutly discusting smell out of them, also get rock hard if u havent used them for awhile.

Bottom Line:   
Great Gloce, im never buyin any glove that doesnt look exactly like this one great desighn and deal.

Very well built.
Easy to clean.
Comfortable and strong.

Could maybe use a little more padding in the palm.

Bottom Line:   
This modle doesn't seem to have the stitching problems I've read about in other earlier models. An excellent glove for $24. Cool colors too.

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.

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 »
