Eric Plath's Bio

The most important thing to understand about me is that I am a hard-worker in everything I do. Whether it be in the workplace or on the paths (both road and dirt).

Sports drives me to be the very best I can be and stay with the very best even if I don't feel 100% all the time.

If I can push for that last little bit to make them work a little harder then I have done my job

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I have been using a Garmin Edge 705 since 2009. The unit still works great but lacks some key features of the newer models. So decided it was time to upgrade to a newer Garmin bike computer. I researched what models would fit my needs and after much research landed on the Edge 520.

I purchased the bundle which included the out front bar handlebar mount, cadence sensor, and speed sensor, and the device. Everything is simply smarter and better. The way the sensors attach is wonderful. The cadence sensor attaches to the crank arm with rubberized bands. And the speed sensor wraps around the hub. No more zip ties mess around with or to scratch up your bike’s paint. Installation literally took 10 minutes and it was done.

When powering up the Edge 520, it is incredible how fast it turns on and locates the satellites. The initial set-up is easy and intuitive and you are able to set-up the data fields the way I wanted. Pairing the cadence and speed sensor is easy as long as you follow the instructions. The heart rate sensor did not want to pair at first, but after repeating the process a second time it worked. No issues since. The biggest feature that my previous Garmin lacked, was the ability to wirelessly sync the device to Garmin Connect without having to connect it to a computer and download the ride data. The Edge 520 allows your smartphone with the Garmin Connect app to sync your ride data via Bluetooth. It makes it very quick and easy to see your ride information post ride. You can set it up so if your phone is ringing, a message will appear on the Edge 520 to alert you.

I am still learning all the features and training tools, but really impressed with everything about the device. It is reliable and simple to use, but has powerful features.

When people hear Gluten Free I always see the look on their face as if there will be no taste to them. These are the kind of people that have clearly never tried anything that is gluten free, because this snack will change their whole outlook in life. If you want a killer snack that will keep you going throughout the day get these. The maple flavor is awesome and you can't go wrong. Stop waiting to click the add to cart button and just do it! I promise you won't regret it!

Yup...I finished these within the first 10 minutes of receiving them. This is something that I could eat every day! I promise you won't regret this purchase.

As a whole these are okay. I was hoping for a little more flavor, as they were a little too plain. If some honey bbq would have been used I think these would be like drugs!

These shoes are great if you need comfort and support built in together. My wife absolutely loves these and is critical when she does her workouts. The gel mixed in with the medial rigidity makes the shoes structured without sacrificing the overall feel when you are pushing through a hard workout.

If you want a bomber commuting light this is the option for you. Light & Motion has a lot of great products, but when it comes to bang for your buck this is the ticket. Highly recommended for those that ride on days where you can barely even see your own foot. If you want cars to see you before you become their hood ornament I strongly recommend getting this.
