I'm still using the KISS method of training, clock, HRM & zones- nothing else. Thought about a PM, but it would be wasted $$ for what I could extract from it.

I'm doing the same thing by default. I don't have the $$ for a power meter.

Effit! Ride hard when its time to ride hard. Ride easy when it isn't!

Check Chris King's website. If anyone makes something, they do. ...Or problem solvers' site.

Thats a fairly common thing... Is fork steertube is 1 1/8 the whole way, and his frame has a larger bottom cup to accomodate a 1.5 taper steerer.... Thats how most of treks mtb frames are, cane creek, king, etc will all have a headset for that sort of application

Problem is I dont want to put too many $$$ in to this and new forks are a pricy.

Are there any options out there for using 1 1/8" steerer tube forks that have a 1 1/2" bearing on the bottom?

Thanks

Thanks for lead on Cane Creek - yep, they have a head set system that looks as though it will work. Got to wait a while and see what works out though. at the moment, new forks are a no no so this option is good

Whatever you decide to get, I would suggest you get it from REI for their lifetime warranty. I've had two first generation Edges bite the dust, I'm assuming from vibration during rides. They both lasted a little over two years and both times I returned them to REI and exchanged them for new. The second time I got the 500 because that was the current model. I think it's pretty unusual for electronics to be warrantied this way, but I'm glad to take advantage of it.
I ended up picking up an Edge 200, fits what I need perfectly. I don't need anything but tracking. Got it from REI.

I noticed you use Strava, is there an advantage to using Strava over Garmin connect?

Just wondering... did you test ride the Trek Domane before deciding on the Roubaix?

Sounds like a brutal ride, congrats! Very saddened to hear about the death that occurred.

That is a great report.

1200 miles yikes! Amazing.
Can't wait to read the rest of the report.

I've only gotten part way through it though. Can't read it from work.

...and that's another reason I haven't pushed ahead with one. While I want to know, I don't want to know.
