Familiarity: I've used it several times

I started using Stans on my mountain bike 12 years ago. I just went tubeless on my road bike. I expected some fancy new product for road tires. Good old Stans was the recommended product and it worked perfectly. I just had a flat on my wheel barrow. Poured in some Stans and pumped it up, no problem. I guess if it works don't fix it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have put about 12 rides on these tires. It was a big leap for me to go tubeless. I normally run GatorSkins. We have lousy roads here and flats are a fact of life. So far so good. They mounted easy on my HED rims and sealed on first try. I used Stans sealant and followed the YouTube recommendations. I do have a compressor so I know that helped. I can go 4-5 days without topping the pressure. I started out at 90psi but have been riding 80psi on my short morning training rides if I am riding more than 25 miles I will up the pressure. I have steep down hills and I have never felt so confident on the curves. They are grippy and take some of the chatter out of the road. They feel good on wet surfaces. I will wait until I have a 1000 miles on them before I give a final review but so far so good.

I have had the Element Bolt for three weeks and maybe a dozen rides, road and mountain. Switched from a Garmin 510. It is definitely a huge step up in software and hardware. It was very easy to set up and go and the more I learned about it's capabilities and refined my display the better it got. I like that if you want to change bikes they make it easy including speed and cadence. All of this only works this well if you pair it with a smart phone, otherwise it would just be an average computer. I use Strava and it automatically downloads my ride as soon as I hit the end of ride button. By the time I get in the house it is on my Strava page with all of the details. The only downside is that the cadence sensor does not always work under 65 rpm. Climbing on my mountain bike means that it will often drop out.
Element is the next generation, Garmin has some catching up to do.
