Not one.
Ok…onto the normal business!…
I’ve long since wondered what to do with all the random tidbits of things I collect each week – or the little thoughts that don’t quite make for a full post. But I finally came up with a solution: The Week in Review Post. This takes the place of my Weekly Mailbag – which is over on Slowtwitch. These are just quick snippets of things that I’ve found interesting. Nice and easy Saturday reading. Plus, a recap of my Weekly Mailbag post a well.
So with that, let’s get into the action!
Weekly Mailbag Over at Slowtwitch.com: The Mailbag keeps on truckin! This week I cover a potpourri of subjects, including:
1) Choosing device for open-water swimming measurement 2) Waterproofing of Garmin Edge Cycling devices 3) When will Garmin release a waterproofed FR210? 4) How to fix Edge 800 that doesn’t fit well between aerobars
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs: Tons of great stuff out there this week on the internet, some of it spilling over from CES last week – but lots of stuff just starting to roll again as people get into the new year and focus on the spring/summer ahead:
#1) ANT+ Phone Launch -(yes, technically last week): For those that haven’t seen it yet, Sony Ericsson will be adding ANT+ Support to its Xperia™ Arc, Xperia™ X8, Xperia™ X10 mini, and Xperia™ X10. You may remember I showed this off a bit back in September.
#6) UCI Cycling Approval Protocol:If you’re not aware of the ‘fun’ that goes into how bikes get approved for UCI races such as the Tour de France, this is a great in depth article to the overly complex process.
As many of you probably know, I’ve been in Jordan this past week for work. Since it’s now the weekend here, I’ve been enjoying this amazing country. Just headed out to the door to Petra in a second. Yesterday I had a great ride (after my bike/luggage arrived…separately). I posted some fun comments and a couple photos over on Slowtwitch for those who want a bit of a sneak peak.
And, here’s one more photo:
Ok…off to see one of the wonders of the world…gotta go!
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.
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.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2018 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
