Re: Mudguard screws sheared off and embedded in frame

Strange how both heads have sheared off at exactly the same time?

Re: Garmin 810 TBT 'Dist. to point' and 'Time to point' countdown

Yes I select, 'road cycling' and then 'follow roads'. Also make sure your device is set to 'lock on roads' in the navigation settings. There's a one way street not far from here and Garmin Connect won't let me go the wrong way down it, but down near RAF Cosford there is a lane that is about a mile a...

Re: TURBO TRAINER PHONE DATA APP (NOT VIRTUAL)

I had a bit of trouble with mine, I paired it to garmin connect on my phone and it was okay, then the next time I went to use it, it the Wahoo app wouldn't pick it up, took the battery out and reinserted it and all was fine, same happened next time! I emailed Garmin and the reply was it needed reset...

Re: Garmin 810 TBT 'Dist. to point' and 'Time to point' countdown

Why don't you use garmin connect? I plan a route normally on my chromebook but sometimes on my laptop. Then go to the connect app on my phone, the route is there and then I just send it to my device by Bluetooth. Same when I've finished a ride it automatically uploads it to Garmin connect and then t...

Re: Dogs: Why? Why not?

Got up Wednesday morning and our 14yr old Springer spaniel Flynn couldn't get up, his back legs had gone. Took him to the vets and they thought he'd had a stroke so sadly he had to be put to sleep. He was a lovely dog and went everywhere with us, house is empty without him and I never thought I'd be...

Re: TURBO TRAINER PHONE DATA APP (NOT VIRTUAL)

I got a free Garmin speed sensor2 from Garmin as they'd messed me about. Anyway I put it on the back hub of my old bike on the turbo and downloaded the 'Wahoo' app, it picked the sensor up right away and on the data screen there is also a cadence and heart rate box. Good app and auto uploads your wo...

Re: Amazon Account

I find the amazon locker handy but to me £80 for amazon prime is just dead money. Most things are cheaper elsewhere and I use music download app for free!

Re: Garmin 810 TBT 'Dist. to point' and 'Time to point' countdown

If you select running as your activity on garmin connect then it does indeed send you the shortest way around an island, NOT the wrong way. I think operator error is the problem here? My edge 830 informs me of a turn 0.10 miles beforehand, doesn't bother me in the slightest but to have a unit for 7 ...

Re: Garmin 810 TBT 'Dist. to point' and 'Time to point' countdown

How can Garmin Connect send you down a track if your plotting a route yourself? Don't get the bit about sending you the wrong way round an island either! A road a mile away from me was closed for 2 months as Western Power were putting a new supply cable in to a substation, you could get through on a...

Re: Rowing machine ?

I had a concept2 model D for many years, the machine splits into two parts. These are the machines that Steve Redgrave and the rest of the team trained on! The onboard computer is excellent, pace boat on it etc. As for spare parts you can get any nut or bolt you may need. I found the seat was very u...

Master padlocks aren't any good! They wouldn't do that trick on an Assa Abloy padlock.

Re: Where do I start please

I remember a few years ago at the start of the Speedwell '100' the time keeper remarked to a first-time rider starting two minutes in front of me........' Just think of it as riding ten '10's'
