  1. I think I can get at least 12hrs on my Edge 810. Make sure the backlight is off or set to 15 second alerts as it tends to drain the battery.
  2. a) Do I need a Garmin bike computer - yes. Cadence, HR, Power and other cool stuff like Strava - I'm told KOM hunting is very addictive (apparently). b) if so...why and which one..... there are 10 to choose from on the website. Whats compatable to a Q power meter - somebody? Anybody? I have Garmin Edge 810. Had it for a few years now and very happy with it. I'm not a tech geek though so there may be better models available by now. c) do I need to buy 2 (one for each bike) - No, just buy one bike computer and set up a bike profile for each bike which you can flick between depending on which bike you're on. d) how do you install them as the attachment thingy is for round handle bars not flat aero bars - buy a mount for each bike. Mine is a K-edge Garmin TT mount like this: https://www.probikekit.co.uk/cycling-accessories/k-edge-garmin-tt-mount/11514813.html?affil=thggpsad&switchcurrency=GBP&shippingcountry=GB&variation=11514814&shoppingpid=ATM10_191217_&&thg_ppc_campaign=71700000051674281&gclid=Cj0KCQjw6575BRCQARIsAMp-ksNDztXPmtapdnmebnue1Yg-VsoQYtH3hhR0uBjRugNaFy9xjmw6jjYaAgc4EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds The device fits really snug between the bars. The gap between my bars is 55mm including bar tape so make sure you have at least that much space as I barely have a mm to spare as you can see on the left side of my Garmin Edge 810: If you race with an aero bottle up on your bars, make sure you can still fit the bottle mount on without messing with the device position. I can do this with my Bontrager components. The device is almost invisible (see below). If you can't do this, there are other types of mounts that fit to various aero bottle systems but it all gets a bit stacked and messy. e) If i get one etc, who sets it up and who sets up what power i am supposed to push and how do you find that out. - you set it up. It's easy peasy. Just go to Garmin connect and open an account for yourself, pair it with your bluetooth gadgets, HR strap, strava etc. Setting up the device is easy. Someone else will know about pairing it with your power meter but it paired easily with my Tacx Neo power meter seamlessly.
  3. Cool, a thread about our sport! My TT rig which is totally not ideal for the kinds of roads I'm on these days in Scotland (but I still love it). I tend to ride it on my indoor trainer and take my little road bike outside. Should never have sold my Zipps - they are the only thing that would make this bike better. My road bike is about 12-years old but owes me nothing and I really enjoy riding it on the Scottish hills these days. The SRAM Red derailleur fell off 1km from home last week - just worn out. So it's at the local bike shop getting repaired. I like travelling with this bike because it's so small, light and easy to pack. I'm just gonna keep riding it til it or I can go on no more! If anything happened to it, my dream bike is a Trek Madone. Bonus photo of one of my favourite places to ride - the Cairngorms! This spot is about 40km from home.
  4. Stalking him at the carbo loading dinner doesn't count.
  5. Funnily enough, he was spending more time chatting up the ladeeeezzzzzz than hitting golf balls. Very funny guy.
  6. Bill Murray. Carnoustie Golf Course. Close the thread.
  7. If it's in Comic Sans it must be true.
  8. I prefer to weight for lifts. 🙄 I did 160 storeys once in Dubai.
  9. You could take some KOMs going up on the poma.
  10. There's a couple of gems on Netflix at the moment: The Geen Mile - based on a Stephen King novella, screenplay and director Frank Darabont (same team that did Shawshank Redemption Oh Brother, Where art Thou? - Cracking Coen Brothers film with George Clooney at his comic best.
  11. I must go on holiday soon.
  12. Sturgeon speaking off the cuff is brilliant. If only all pollies were this direct.
  13. Were they taking selfies for instagram before eating their dinner?
  14. Did he make you feel like dancing?
