4iiii Dual Sided Power Meter: A Short Test Ride

Last Friday while on the way to the airport from Kananaskis (in the mountains for the ANT+ Symposium) to Calgary I swung by the 4iiii headquarters in Cochrane.  The time I had was rather limited, as I was super time-boxed with daylight on one side, and a flight departure time …

Because it’s October: Garmin Edge 520 Giveaway

It’s somehow October already, and it’s been months since the Giveaway Extravaganza, and far too many months since a standalone extravaganza.  I really need to have more of these.  Partly because I love giving away stuff.  And partly because if I was smart I’d do more of these posts merely …

In Depth Product Reviews

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget.  If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section.  Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos!  I aim to leave no stone unturned.


Read My GPS Recommendations.

Here’s my most recent gadget recommendations guide (Winter 2014-2015 edition) – covering almost every category of sports gadgets out there.  Looking for the equipment I use day to day?  I also just put together my complete 2015 ‘Gear I Use’ equipment list, from swim to bike to run and everything in between (plus a few extra things).  And to compliment that, here’s The Girl’s (my wife’s) 2015 list. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!


Understand technology and sport in the How-To Guides.

I enjoy explaining new things to folks – especially showing people how to get the most from their gadgets. Here’s an ongoing list of “How to” guides.


Read my Top 25 most useful posts.

It turns our I’ve written a fair bit of stuff over the past few years – and after it disappears from my front page, a lot of it never really sees the light of day again without Google’ing skillz.  Or a photographic memory…which I don’t have.  I’ve taken a look back and found stuff that…continues to find a trickle of readers via web searches or forum links.


Have some fun in the travel section.

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.

    • @JohnQPS122 Not sure...but would have honestly made video epic. ,
    • @GGSIII You can use the Wahoo app. Free = Super Cheap! I use the app all the time for testing. ,
    • @pabboy7 Yup, there will be a trainer guide, likely week of Oct 26th. $800-$1,100 I'd look at KICKR. ,
    • @Cunningham_UK Perfectly functional, but left only. Power2Max has full sided PM at same price. ,
    • @alemos Yup, that and an Elite trainer in the sub-500 price range. ,
    • @deero83 Yup, but with a purple line showing you were to go, and alerts for turns and when you miss something. ,
    • @deero83 Yup, exactly. I've used it a few times in places I had no idea where I was, worked well enough. ,
    • @HaraldBootz Wow, I totally missed that line-item on Saturday when I looked at it. I wonder if that was always there, or added on race day? ,
    • @HaraldBootz Very cool, where's that from? ,
    • RT @kellydomara: My op-ed is in @dcrainmakerblog weekly round-up (& he agrees w/ my underlying argument). Basically I've made it. ,
