Garmin Forerunner 910XT

This is a pricey piece of equipment but it delivers everything you would need as a triathlete to track your activities. Every other device I've used I thought was lacking something but this is the first I really cannot think of something it does not have.

In short, this is a great bike for beginner to intermediate cyclists. It is a great value and is very smooth, quiet and quick. I'm sure a true advanced cyclists would find some fault with it but for the majority of us it is a great bike!

I like this, but it's not a necessary accessory. I use the GPS feature when I ride outside instead of riding with a Garmin. If you already have a GPS/ANT+ device, like the Garmin 910xt, or 310xt, this isn't needed.

A great option for a more cushioned running shoe. I can definitely feel a difference in leg fatigue after a run in the Hoka's. I don't use them as an everyday trainer but they are great for easy or long runs.

I am very happy with this prodcut and would recommend if you don't have the means to get an expensive power meter. To get some wattage data for a couple hundred bucks is hard to beat.

Garmin Forerunner 620

Still happy with the purchase although in hindsight I should have bought the 910 due to the fact that this 620 CANNOT be used as a watch as it is not durable enough and would not last a month.

All around solid piece of equipment for training and racing. Bought another one so that's a pretty good endorsement of the product. Does everything I need it to do.

ISM Adamo Road

OK, I have been going back and forth on getting a new saddle. BTW, if you are wondering about the difference between a bike seat and a saddle, then this may not be the review for you. After about 25 miles into a ride I start to feel it and I am starting to go further now, with 30-40 milers being a goal for consistency. I currently have 2 Adamo saddles, the Road and the Racing, on demo from Real Bikes Englewood. I put the Road on the bike, and went out for a 25 mile ride the other morning. It rode nicely, with the relief cut out and the shorter nose, the overall feel of it was nice. I tried the aero bars and there it was. NO PRESSURE!!!!! Good Golly, Miss Mollyl, that is a relief and a half. The final test was after dismount. Oh Yeah, the twig and berries were happy. How happy, Jimmy? Happier than a camel on Wednesday. Insert Geico ad here.




So next up was the Racing II, which was very similar to the Road. Maybe I am not that sensitive, but if there was a difference, I couldn’t have told you while I was sitting on the bike. It felt good. So, 16 miles into the ride, I headed for home. There was not going to be a lot more that I would know if I kept on riding, and the real world was calling as well.



Finally, I did that which pushed me to decision making. I put my old San Marco back on the bike. 27 mile ride with the group from Real Bikes Englewood was all the time I needed to remind me of how different the Adamo felt. The reality is that the sit bones felt the Adamo more than they ever did with the San Marco, but the relief that came in the form of no numbness made the choice easy. Combine that with the multiple reviews that mention your adjustment will be complete after a few rides and the choice was made. Message sent to RBE, please order me a new saddle!



It has been a few months since the original test and there have been many miles put on the Adamo Road. And there are a few things that I have noticed.






No return of the numbness. This has been a glorious feeling and the biggest selling point I can think of.



My sit bones have adjusted, and it did not take very long at all. If it was 2 weeks, then I’d be surprised.
The Adamo saddles in general elict a response. Love it or hate it, people have a response to it. There is no middle ground.

Great product, great for indoors. I live in Washington State where it rains the majority of winter, so it's nice to stay indoors and ride my bike. I haven't had it that long but I have enjoyed the workouts I have done.

Simple but really useful product to have. Probably the most productive tool I use in the pool.

If you can find a good deal on this watch, it's worth it. Otherwise, check out Garmin's newer products.

Good addition to the swim bag. Smaller than most paddles so less shoulder stress and unique shape helps reinforce good form in the swim
