Heads up – Massive 20% off sports tech sale begins! The semi-annual Clever Training 20% off sale has begun with virtually all trainers and most power meters included. Wahoo, Tacx, Elite, CycleOps, STAC, Kinetic, PowerTap, Stages, and many more. Not to mention bike GPS units from Lezyne and Polar.
Also the Garmin Fenix 5 & 5 Plus series ($150 off!), as well as watches from Polar (including the new Polar Vantage), Suunto (like the Suunto) 9, and COROS. And a boatload more things I can’t fit into this little text box.
All good things must come to an end, and this folks, it’s the end of the road. At least assuming you’re still on the road and haven’t fallen asleep and found you and your bike crashed into the side of a goose farm or something.
For the vast majority of the last year and a half my go-to watch has been the FR935. Mostly because it’s lightweight. I see no good reason to add any more weight to the amount of crap I have to lug out on each run or ride. Did you see my tweet from yesterday on all that junk I took on yesterday’s ride? See, that’s why. Also, it just works. I’m a fan of ‘just works’ things – like my wooden desk I built for about $20 or so. That just works too. Though it doesn’t have GPS built into it (I did put one of those Ikea wireless charging mats into it though).
In any case, thanks for coming along the ride for these last 24 hours! Expect the winners to be posted later Tuesday of a time zone of my choosing (likely Hawaii, since that lets me actually procrastinate even further). Until then, go get some sleep. I certainly will be (actually, probably not).

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.
