Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased the speed/cadence sensor as well as the heart rate monitor for this unit. When you upload ride data to Garmin Connect, you not only get charts and graphs representing your ride, you also get a map with your ride highlighted. Very cool! Unit has proven to be waterproof on several rides in the rain. Battery life is awesome. Battery is not user serviceable, but according to Garmin, will last several years. Acquires satelites within seconds from powering up. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Amazing light!!!I run this on the handlebars, but it will easily mount on your helmet with the supplied mount. This baby will light up the trails!! Have you ever seen a police helicopter with its searchlight full on? This light gets pretty close to that. You can also use it as a heater in the winter! During the summer it does run hot, but will dim if it starts overheating. This only happens when your stopped or going extremely slow. Battery life is as advertised. I also run the Stella 300 mounted on my helmet. Niterider also makes what has to be the brightest taillight I have ever seen, the CherryBomb. Highly recommended!

Excellent system! I was always a Yakima fan...new Dodge Ram, no Yakima parts available! Thule Rules! Still use my Yakima 'Dry Dock' for the rear end. There is a wind fairing available from Thule and in my opinion it is a must have! It greatly reduces wind noise and looks cool too!
