Heads up! Massive Sale on Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Trainers and more! There’s two huge sales going on – first is a major Garmin sale, including $100 off new Forerunner 945 and $150 off the Fenix 5 Plus. Along with the Varia Radar, Garmin Edge 130 & 1030, and plenty more.

Wahoo KICKR’s, Tacx NEO’s, Elite Direto’s and Suito’s, Saris H3, Kinetic, R1 4iiii Fliiiight, Stages, and many more. Not to mention the GPS units from Garmin, Polar, COROS, Lezyne, Suunto, Apple and others.
Just a quick note to apologize for the DC Rainmaker outage earlier today. For reasons a bit unclear to me, BlogSpot/Blogger decided that it wanted me removed from the universe. Perhaps my recent request for WordPress developers to assist with a new site design agitated the well oiled machine.
Now, to be fair, as I’ve always said – BlogSpot has been good to me for the past four years, so I can’t complain too much about 2 hours of mysterious (and heart attack inducing) downtime. Of course, the fact that my blog was flat out removed was of a wee bit bigger concern.
Nonetheless, a few e-mails through a few folks seems to have quickly resolved the issue and brought DCR back to life! So I’m greatly appreciative to those behind the scenes made some magic happen, and brought back some happy.
Speaking of happy, all of your various SOPA related jokes Tweeted to me during the time period were pretty funny – and at least made the experience a bit light hearted. Plus, as a bonus – for those two short hours, the ratio of inbound e-mail to outbound e-mail was finally in balance. Short lived that was…
Again – thanks to everyone who e-mailed, texted, Tweeted, FaceBooked and just about every other method on earth to let me know it was down, I really do appreciate it! And – for those curious, I have indeed got a ton of awesome WordPress developers that came forward with some really cool portfolios, and am working through them all now.
Have a great weekend! And as always, thanks for reading!
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.
