@renesis the Edge 25 is a bicycle-specific device.

comment What is the effect on battery life of enabling glonass support on garmin edge 25?
For what it's worth, I always leave my Edge 520 in GPS+GLONASS mode and I've never used more than about 60% of the battery in a single day.

comment Is a carbon fibre cyclocross or mountain bike likely to be lighter than an aluminum roadbike?
You're trying to compare apples to oranges. You wouldn't compare running shoes to hiking boots because they serve different purposes. What's the point of making such a useless comparison?

Yes they're alive and well, and the bikes have been getting better and better too.

comment How stay fit enough to make moderately hard rides a couple times a month?
@JamesJenkins that's fine, but this is bicycles.stackexchange. If you need information outside of the scope of bicycle knowledge, frankly, you've come to the wrong place.

comment How much is a Trek Alpha aluminium 58cm road bike worth?
Well you just bought it for $200, so it's safe to say the going rate for that bike is about $200. What's your real question? Are you wanting to know how much you should have paid for it?

comment How to exchange a seat stray on a 2013 Cube AMS 150 Super HPC Race carbon bike?
Carbon is very easy to damage. Maybe have a professional handle the repair if you're not sure how to do it.

comment Road bike for brevets
Yeah, bike fit can get complex very fast. Sometimes it's worth it to pay a professional ~100 dollars to tell you what you need.

If he switches his setup and his discomfort goes away that's a pretty definitive diagnosis.

comment Road bike for brevets
Yeah, I didn't mention it here, but I think fit is a given. If a bike doesn't fit you properly, it doesn't matter what else you do to it, you're not going to be comfortable if it doesn't fit you.

comment Is there anything concerning about buying a half-price “test helmet” from my local bike shop?
The general rule of thumb is if you suspect a helmet could possibly be damaged, replace it. Granted, this recommendation was born out of an abundance of caution. smf.org/helmetfaq#aWhyReplace

comment Something sounds loose but cant see what
It's hard to say much with such a vague description, you're probably going to have to narrow it down some more or take it to a shop. Some food for thought: If you're short on grease somewhere, there are a lot of moving parts that will make noise even if they're not loose. Inside the bottom bracket or a hub or other bearing-type parts for example.

comment Making the most of Edge 500 courses
Manually copy the .tcx file into the Edge 500 folder called 'NewFiles' and the next time you startup the 500, it will convert it into a course. The startup time will be longer while it processes the files in said folder.

comment Expanding the range of capabilities of a gravel bike
'Gravel Grinders' are just glorified, marked up cross bikes. Get a cross bike and you'll be able to take it most anywhere.

Why do a lot of unintuitive sports exist? Because enough people thought it was a fun/good idea.

comment How does pedaling power transfer to the bearings in Hollowtech II bottom bracket?
I don't know how you got yourself into this mess, but you are way-over-thinking this. The entire purpose of a bottom bracket is to minimize any and all friction and let the crank spin freely.
