Heads up – new (and last) round of holiday sports tech deals! This is pretty much the last round of deals on sports tech devices, including solid offerings from GoPro, Garmin, Fitbit, Suunto, Velocomp, Tacx and more! Pretty much all those brands are offering deals on their latest devices. I’ve consolidated them all, and you likely won’t see any big deals like this again till May or so for the usual sports tech sales around that timeframe.
I’ve got everything categorized and constantly updated with new deals! Hit up the deals page and keep coming back for the latest new additions!
Giveaway Extravaganza: Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer + Satori Smart for a friend
There are few training tasks worse than riding alone on a trainer in a dark basement or within sketchy closet. It’s just you, your bike, and the wall ahead of you with 4 paint marks that you still haven’t fixed two seasons later. So I thought – what if I fix that?
What if I give you an excuse to ride with a friend (either in or outside of your closet), and even the opportunity to ride remotely with said friend by giving them a new trainer too! Just in case you’ve got no real-life friends nearby. That’s because both of these trainers support transmitting via ANT+ your power data to apps like Zwift, so you can trash talk your friend from anywhere in the world. Of course, given you’re still riding in a basement closet – you probably ought to keep that in mind when trash talking.

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.
It turns out 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.
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.
