There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
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 weekend 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: Look for a new post over on ST on Monday. Topics will be updated later tonight…but I think I’m going to do a ‘Best of Dan Empfield’ mailbag, taking all his best e-mailed questions. Should be kinda fun!
Posts over on the Men’s Health/Gatorade/Urbanathlon Blog: In addition to all my writings here, I also cover a bunch of topics over on the Men’s Health Urbanathlon blog. Here’s the goods from the past week:
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs: The last few weeks have had just too much good stuff out there. It was hard narrowing it all down, but I think I got the good stuff. Remember, I end up sharing quite a bit more over on Twitter:
4) New BlueTooth Low Energy Heart Rate Strap Released. Following up on last week’s next of BTLE spec finally be finalized, a new HR strap has been released. The real question now becomes if the rumors of iPhone 5/New iPod having BT4.0 will come true. (via Engadget)
5) ITU Athletes go paragliding. Apparently they didn’t think they had enough adventure in their lives already…so they jumped off the side of a mountain.
9) Swimsense adds more features to watches. Included now is the ability to configure watch settings from the desktop client. I continue to enjoy seeing more and more features added here…looking forward to each feature they add and those coming down the line.
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

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!
