Hambini Explains T47 Bottom Bracket Standard

I enjoyed this one. My Speed Concept has the T47i bottom bracket (BB), so I came into the video with a fairly high level of knowledge, and still learned a few things. Personally, while the threaded T47 isn’t perfect, I do think it’s an improvement over BSA and removes some of the takes-your-chances nature of a press-fit BB.…

Stages SB20 Smart Bike and 1 Year of Zwift, For $1400

I can only guess that Stages is exiting the smart bike market, because the pricing on their SB20 all-in-one is crazy low. Not only do you get a solid indoor training solution, no bike required, but also a year of Zwift. I’ve never ridden the SB20, and truth be told, I’m not a fan of the smart bike genre because at the end of the day it’s never going to have great…

Garmin Takes fēnix 7 to 11, 11.15 that is…

OK, wow! That’s a lot of new, cool stuff, and quite a few bug fixes in Alpha version 11.15 for the fēnix 7 and related Garmin outdoor recreation watches. I’ve highlighted a few of the more interesting things, but the most interesting thing might be support for Connect IQ System 6, which promises a richer experience on the watch.…

Get Di2 Back On Your Karoo 2

Remember how Shimano gave Hammerhead Karoo/Karoo 2 owners the shaft back in May? That has been corrected, at least for Karoo 2 users, by an enterprising fellow named Valter Costa who leveraged the Hammerhead SDK to add the functionality back into the device via an add-in.…

Garmin Edge 530/830/1030/1030 Plus *.73 Firmware Released

Not much to it, but there is a new firmware update for the Garmin Edge 530 (9.73)/830 (9.73)/1030 (13.73)/1030 Plus (6.73) cycling computers. The only really notable thing is that it appears to fix an issue with Firstbeat stats. I don’t think I’ve run into this one personally, but it would suck to have all that data reset when the device power cycles. Nothing to do except sync the device with your…

Wait, what? IQ² is actually going to deliver something?

There is no version of reality in which I expected to find an email from IQ² indicating that they still exist, and are starting production for the power meter pedal* that I backed 4 years ago (?). NGL, it’s been so long since the last update, I just assumed that they had gone bankrupt so quickly that the lights got turned off before anyone could setup a dead-man’s switch. This is awesome…

myWindsock Adds Feels Like Elevation Chart

For me, myWindsock is a vital planning tool. It’s key for races, and for planning longer rides where a negative split is The Way. And it’s just gotten easier to visualize the windpact with their wind-as-elevation chart. Love it! The chart shows the real road feel when the Wind and Elevation are combined. There is no better way to visualise a ride, so it is now the default chart for all your…

Garmin Drops 10.33 Alpha for fēnix 7

Lots of change here, but the biggest is probably the addition of “Morning Report”. This is a feature found on the 255/955, that was promised for the fēnix 7, but hasn’t made it over until now. Although, it’s just the foundational elements on the watch so far. You can only turn it on/off, with no option to mess about with the settings. This not me complaining though, because Alpha software is by…
