Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the Garmin Edge 500, 510 and 520. I really liked the 520 but it started quitting mid-ride a few times and the software navigation on all Garmin computers is a joke. Then the 520 stopped charging. So I bought a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt. Wow, totally cool. Great interface with the Android phone app. Syncs and plays well with Strava, RideWithGPS and TrainingPeaks.

I love the battery life, the easy to customize screens and the easy to read display. It works great with my HRM, power mete3r, and SRAM eTAP.

Like that it does BLE, ANT+ and Wifi so syncing is a breeze.

Like the ability to zoom in on the screens to show just what I want to see.

The SRAM eTAP Red is awesome. I've had it for over a year now and but 5,000+ miles on it. No problems at all. Great in wet, rain, sun and cold. Spot on shifting, low maintenance. Easy set up. Great battery life, and fast recharging. Haven't had to replace the coin batteries in the shifters yet.

OK, you can pay a lot more or a lot less for bib shorts, but the Body paint bib shorts are a great value for the money. Very comfortable, outstanding chamois and virtually no seams and the fabrics blend together to make a tight but comfortable bib short that lasts a good season plus with proper care. They are my go-to bibs for centuries in hot weather. They are very cool and so even on hot and humid days I don't feel like I am overheating. For me, I have a long torso and stocky legs, I'm 5-9 and about 185 and find the size L fits well, although one of the three pairs I owe the straps dig a bit into my shoulders. Nothing painful, but they don't lie flat a wide like the other two. I rotate the three pairs, one bought in 2013 and the other two in early 2014 and after 60+ rides in each, the oldest pair is just now showing a bit of curl on the gripper fabric on the thighs. The others are fine. No other nits or wear spots and no loose threads or problems with the chamois. After being underwhelmed by the Inferno bibs I bought at the beginning of this season, I am going to buy another pair of the Body Paints and retire the oldest ones soon.

I live in Body Paint 2.0 bibs, but during hot hot summer days I though an even more lightweight bib might be even better. The Inferno are not that bib. Same great Chamois as Body Paint bibs, basically same nice and wide shoulder straps, but the extra seams and fabrics don't blend to a real comfortable bib. The sizing is all over the place and so in the end I finally ended up with XL in these while I wear an L in Body Paint 2.0 and the XL Infernos are actually a tad smaller than the L size Body Paint. Also the fabric is already showing nits and wear that I haven't seen on even my 2-year old Body Paints. That said the bibs are cool, but not noticeably more so than the Body Paint ones IMHO.
