Garmin Launch Solar-Powered Edge 540 & Edge 840
@big-red: touch screens work by looking for a dielectric constant of a material within an expected range of a human finger…which because of our make up is really close to that of water water So snow, rain splashing water dripping sweat gloves and or sweaty fingers alone or in combination are all likely to make a touch screen not work or work without being touched. 820 was crucified for this so I avoided it buttons are the way to go….they could make the zoom easy…they just didn’t…..the screwy part is there is a when stopped zoom (easily adjusted) and while riding zoom that is way too hard to adjust. Couple this with the unit not really knowing if you are moving or not accurately a small screen where zoom becomes crucial and you not knowing if this is the stopped zoom or the moving zoom which both look the same and you get some really screwy unintuitive trail maps….which should just be a Fkn simple button press. Bigger screen would likely help as would better software

Garmin Launch Solar-Powered Edge 540 & Edge 840
I have one it is by far the stupidest thing I own on a bike I was hoping I could use it to follow new trail systems better and stop pulling out my phone every 5 seconds just look down for a quick sec and know where I’m going. The screen is too small and the zoom is too screwy to make this useful without stopping (garmin 5:30) I pull out my phone most times Even preprogrammed routes it sucks and is not accurate enough to keep you on course or recognize you are on the right course in complex trail systems(the main place you want it). Failing at its core function it is heavily laden with useless crap like asking me how Much water I drank during a ride and how many calories I consumed or providing worthless affirmation “nice jump” when I roll a log. It’s too frequently “acquiring satellites”. And will many times miss a ride On the road it has crash detection something that has false alarmed many times to the point I turned it off If you ignore it being a near useless expensive POS It’s fairly robust and has good battery life and as such I still take it with me in the event my phone dies or is broken and I need to navigate out as fast possible. However I consider the spare inner tube strapped to my bike unused in the last 2 years to be a more valuable accessory

The Pinkbike Podcast: Scott’s CMO Reto Aeschbacher on Integration, Marketing, and That Time They Tried Making Suspension
I own a Scott in all it’s twinloc speghetti cabling glory I like it. I do my own work I would choose a bike with headset routing over one with holes in the frame. It makes more sense to me bleeding my brakes is something I do regularly headset bearings not so much do I do y see the problem I also work on cars…so I do not consider anything on a bicycle “hard to service”

Video: 30 Bikes Hucked to Flat in Slow Motion
crazy that some of the bikes bounce off the ground after the huck....Feels like you would want to retune the rebound damping on these prior to doing a bike review.

10 Things I Loved in 2022: Henry Quinney
@henryquinney Your writing is absolutely superb. Informed opinionated and ruthlessly unfiltered dripping with sarcastic humor Brilliant gems like this: "Naturally including massive unzippered pockets, and maybe a combination of both belt loops that you won't use and velcro that won't work. All of it coming in turquoise or orange so you definitely can never wear them off the bike. Ah - perfect." Please keep writing more articles like this and calling out the dumbfkry as well as the brilliant things in the mtb world That topeak gauge is rubbish however, Everytime I go to use mine the batteries are dead. or its' too cold or too sunny or and the guage is barely readable or some combination of the three. So i'm screwing around with the lighting buttons trying to find the perfect viewing angle to read the faded LCD 1 fkn job....and half the time it can't do it...I gave mine a curb stomping out of frustration at it's inadequacy
