Ordered a new GPS computer for the bike recently, a Karoo Hammerhead... just got here, holy shit this thing is huge. It's highly touted for it's mapping and, being new to this area I wanted something with better navigation than my Garmin... this definitely delivers in that area but my God, it's large. It borders on smartphone size, and the screen is gorgeous, way nicer than any Garmin or Wahoo, etc. Android based on they issue frequent updates apparently, supports a ridiculous amount of features, integrates with Strava, Training Peaks, etc... connects to Di2 or AXS, power meters, etc... and it was only $249. $200 less than a Garmin 1030 and WAY nicer in every measurable way I can see. Pretty stoked on this thing after playing with it for the last hour.

Where did you score one of them?

I ordered from Jenson on Dec 2 and my stuff showed up today, Dec 6. That seems impossible. It's often two days shipping from Vancouver to PG, especially around the holidays. Damn impressive.

From their website...

Shit, just noticed they're now $399... I must've gotten a Christmas deal.

Its a grey laminate throughout the main floor which gets ride of a pecan oak laminate, cherry laminate and a grey washed beige laminate coupled with two entries of gross broken 90’s white tile.... should be an improvement worth the 1400$ for the materials. We just terminated two heinous floor outlets and a heating vent in front of french doors so that alone is going to look ten times cleaner.

Rest them aching bones

Thanks. Captures their personalities really well. Basic point and shoot camera on this one. On this tour, the White Stripes played random pre-show performances. In Saskatoon they played in a bowling alley. WInnipeg on a city bus. In Yellowknife, the rolled into the WIldcat Cafe which is the oldest restaurant in the city down near the float plane docks. That was the first and only time I went there and just happened to catch this amazing performance!

Apparently it is some sort of fat bike day so I am off to test ride some fattys. We don't really have snow and its above zero so I hope the regular bikes come out to play.

With your place Magnum it’s ye ol Location Location Location! Twas already an incredible place... with the time and material you’re putting in hopefully the market will reward you many times over! If you’ve got some connections that shoot photos get em to come over and shoot sunrise, sunset, and the stars from around the deck. Million dollar views!!!

Nice, that'll go down a ton easier than some choices too.
