Gear and Gadgets

We all must admit one of the perks we get with our sport is the "xmas eve" feeling we all get when we get the new bike, HR monitor, aero bars, wet suit, goggles and so on.

Here is a list of my equipment at the moment:

Garmin GSC10 Speed Cadence Sensor

This piece of equipment allows you to Monitor your pedaling cadence as you ride with this self-calibrating, wireless speed/cadence sensor. It measures and reports your pedaling strokes per minute, providing feedback for optimal performance.

ISSUES: If the lights are not flashing you need to readjust the magnets so they are within 5mm from each other.  I had problems with this and thats all I had to to to fix it.

Kit with 310xt hooked to it

Garmin Forerunner 310 XT Quick Release Kit

The Quick Release Kit transfers the watch from wrist to bike in seconds for a clear view of progress and performance throughout the training session or race.

The Quick Release Kit is the ideal training aid for multi-sport enthusiasts who want to switch between disciplines without their kit slowing them down.

This works great specially after T1 so you can keep track of your cadence on the bike leg without having to constantly trying to look at your watch.  This clicks on and off very easily and the bracelet does not hurt on the wrist once it goes on.  Do give it a go if you have a 310xt or any other Garmin watch.
