Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I owned a Garmin 826 for 3 years and experienced long periods of frustration and only moments of elation. It died. I replace it with the Element Bolt and there is no comparison. The user interface is simple and reliable. The controls work even in pouring rain with gloves on. The maps are black and white but not a problem. It is almost magically simple to load GPX files (even for Europe) and for non-techies like me. My Garmin HR monitor connected easily and works reliably. I shaved 1 mm off the Garmin handlebar adapters (the ones with the rubber bands) to allow the Bolt to connect and that works great. The use of my iPhone to control settings and read data is simple and simply brilliant. Sorry Garmin, I have switched to Wahoo and will not be going back.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Two bikes: Custom carbon Super Record complete with 11-25 SR cassette; Titanium cross bike with Record parts and Chorus 12-29 cassette. The knees have reached an age where a 12-29 makes more sense, so here is some data on Campy 12-29
11-speed Cassettes:
Super Record (reported wt) 220 grams, $491. Record (reported wt) 256 grams, $332.
Chorus (actual wt, new) 291 grams, $150.

As best I can tell, the cassettes I own function similarly (very well). After a few miles, they are both covered with chain oil and look the same. For the significant price difference, I decided I could tolerate an additional 1.5-2.5 oz so I went with Chorus. It is beautifully machined and worthy of my carbon bike.
