Tim,
Attractive pricing especially when compared to Garmin's inflated $$$.
How is the Polar Computer working out for you?
Have you tried linking the data to Strava? If so, how did that work out?

The Polar V650 ha worked very well for me and I'm very happy with it. It has quirks just like all the other GPS/cycling computers out there but overall it is stable. No crashes or lockups. I think it is a great value.

There was a bug where it just stopped a ride with auto-pause enabled. This only happened on rides >40 miles. The workaround was to disable autopause but a firmware update seems to have fixed this. Polar never officially called it out as a bug or mentioned it as being fixed by the firmware update but it has not occurred for me since the July firmware update.

It has a touch screen and rain or sweat can change it. The solution is to lock the screen. It annoyed me at first but now I start a ride, lock the screen and leave it for the duration of the ride. Screen can still be changed to different views but it won't stop the ride if a drop of sweat happens to hit the screen. This also allows me to put the unit in my pocket when I go into a store.

There is also an upload bug - Windows does not always recognize the device. It has to be deleted and rediscovered in device manager. I sync via bluetooth through my phone most of the time anyway.

Other than that it has been perfect.

Polar Flow (their web based portal) uploads to Strava and/or Training Peaks without problems. It works just like Garmin Connect. Polar Flow allows you to import a course. The only thing I wish it did was structured workouts which the new Garmin 820 does. The screen is spectacular.

30% off 7Mesh plus an extra 10% off with code TAKE10PERCENT.

http://www.competitivecyclist.com/rc/7mesh-on-sale

7Mesh is doing things beyond what anyone else in the industry is doing. Their garments are highly technical and luxurious without the drama and pretense of some other brands.

http://www.7meshinc.com

A former president of Arc'teryx founded the company and several former Arc'terxy designers work there. Those familiar with Arc'teryx will understand. When I called them about size they transferred my call to Ian Martin, VP of Research and Design who gave perfect advice. Very pricey but you will not be disappointed.

Garmin ANT+ USB stick $14.38 + free shipping, offered by iSave, whoever that is?
Makes me think there'll be something new soon and this is a blow-out clearance???

I use a similar stick to hook my Garmin HR, cadence, speed sensor to Zwift on my laptop.
Think my Suunto MoveStick was in the $20's and the best deal around at the time.
No idea if WallyMart can deliver, but worth a try.

BTW you need to be sure that you have a compatible Zwift supported trainer!

That's an amazing price for the ANT+ stick. They are at least $35 from the UK sites right now.

Let me know how ordering from Walmart.com works for you. I tried to order some TACX bottles from them but the website struggled with my zip code. It was a while ago and I can't remember the exact issue bit it kept telling me that the zip code wasn't valid or that the items could not be shipped to that zip code or something like that.

This is a super nice product - merino blend, zippered and lined chest pocket, longer sleeves, subtle and classy branding, a little heavier weight for cool mornings with arm warmers or with a long sleeve base layer for fall. I own the 2.0 version of this jersey and it is as nice as anything I've ever purchased.

A steal if you happen to like red and are an XXL.
