Re: Mudguard screws sheared off and embedded in frame

As you have the sheared off bits check how soft they are. Can you dent them with a screw driver ?
Just wondering if the parts left in are actually seized in ?

Re: Is this turbo trainer thing too easy?

Using a cyclops old fathomed magnetic tt. Adjusting the resistance setting appears to do nothing and it doesn’t seem to be providing much resistance. Is there anything I can check or fix without needing to replace the unit?] I've no idea how a mag' trainer works but initially I would check that the...

Re: JoGLE this year on Frankenbike

Sorry for the slight off-post but how many chains does a 40x42 use ? (And the cost of a 42 cassette ?) A 30x34 will give a similar and slightly lower gearing. Personally I would chose 2x as my jaunt through Cornwall was with a 3x but I only used 39/30 x 34. (I have 105 10 speed and the 50T only got ...

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 ...

Re: TURBO TRAINER PHONE DATA APP (NOT VIRTUAL)

Ant+ dongle should pick up signals from Garmin speed sensors.:- https://www.bing.com/search?q=ANt%2B+dongle&form=OSASSB&pc=OSAS Plugs into USB on PC/Laptop. Would need an adapter cable to attach to a phone. I had a Sony phone that had Ant+ in it already so would sense my HR strap. Check if y...

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

Went out this morning on a 5 mile test ride. Route set around our local streets just for fun. First problem was seeing the screen on the Edge 810. Had some tinted glasses on and with the sun so low and in front I could not see the screen properly. One of the advantages of the 1/4 turn fitting is it ...

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 ...

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

The problem I have as a route designer is that I put a lot of work into customising my TBT instructions so that they're clear and useful. I also add in extra alerts like "steep descent", "potholes" and "lunch!". If someone takes my carefully-crafted TCX file, loads it ...

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

Paul - sorry but it appears I have mislead you a bit. It seems that we do now have to pay to use the "notify before turn" utility. it did work last time I used it but that's quite a bit ago. Experimentally tried to export a route after ticking the box and got a prompt offering me a "f...

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

The route above I have not transferred yet so hadn't ticked the box. (Provisional 'Wimps' route for a JoGLE). I always click the box before exporting the file. I guess it may always be empty and need ticking before any future export anyway ? I usually do all my routes in "classic" mode and...

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

Export.png (click to enlarge) This is a screen print from RWGPS. Under "Export" TCX there is "Notify before turn" box to tick. Under that is metres in advance. In this case 30 metres. Now I don't know if this works or if the distance in the 810 does. Or maybe even both :? I do g...
