Re: Planning routes when you are on tour. PC? Tablet?

Here is a question for you "techie's"! I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8. Is it possible to download a route from Cycle Travel to my Garmin 800?
If so how? Would really appreciate your assistance!
Thanks!!

Re: Which Garmin model?

Re: Derailleur Hanger alignment tool ?

Interesting link. The author says to measure @ 6,12&9. I have always done this but also measure @3.
BTW, I made my own with an old axle and some square steel tubing. I just use my steel ruler.

Re: Cycle Travel question!
