These are perfect so what if they're 8g heavier than the 6870 di2 shifters they are compatible with 10 speed front and rear DI2 or with 11 speed front and rear derailleurs.

Comes with shifters and brake cables. Electronic cables need to be purchased separately. If you're looking for a big $ saver getting into the DI2 game these shifters are the ticket.

Sure, maybe this helmet makes a difference with its aerodynamic shaping.

What it does do well - winter riding - a little electrical tape over the vents keeps your head dry and warm in the worst conditions. Never leave home on a winter ride without this guy. Best helmet for bad conditions!

These are the best aluminum brake pads I've ever ridden. They come close to matching the exalith Mavic wheels, not quite but for a $30 investment WAY worth it. Make my lute gar brakes feel like uber high end stoppers. Grabby without sending you over the bars with great modulation not sure why any other aluminum pads exist. BUY THESE.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using a Garmin 500 for the past three years...it's been a great device, light, dependable, easy to use. Recently i've been doing more traveling, which is a drag without a bike and have found myself lost several times in unfamiliar lands far from the comforts of my local routes and pit-stops.

- Enter the Garmin 810 -

This device is everything I hoped it would be - essentially I was looking for an upgrade to the 500 with map usability. I don't really care about bluetooth connectivity and to be honest I'm a bit of a luddite. I buy a device to do a single job, in this case it's navigation, and to do it well. I have to say the 810 turn by turn directions with a GPX file from any of a host of on-line mapping sites takes the terror out of venturing onto unfamiliar roads and the courage to go left when you might normally go right. Or as Robert Frost might say..."I took the road less traveled by and that has made all the difference..." Thanks to the Garmin 810 I was able to do this.

Another bonus: now through May 31st 2014 Garmin is offering a $100 rebate on the 810, http://garmin.blogs.com/promotions/2014/03/Edge_810_Rebate.pdf - making this decision a whole lot easier
