    HAC4 and recording race info

    You probably didn't perform the download reset correctly. You have to simultaneously press both buttons to start AND to stop the recording. I think you probably failed to stop the recording pre-race, so that when you pressed both buttons before your race, you were actually STOPPING previous...

    Scratched Titanium!

    I know it's probably been discussed before, but how does one remove that nasty remnants of bike mishandling (scratches) from a brushed titanium frame (Litespeed Tuscany 2002)? On Merlin's site, Scotchbrite (fine) is recommended, and I've even heard of a simple pencil eraser recommended as well...

    Saddle suggestions wanted (from roadies)

    Todd, After not having ANY success with a Selle San Marco Aspide, I bought the Aireon Pro SL form Supergo ($39.95 - 176 grams!) and have found that it is quite comfy - for me! The only downside, is that the lower edges of the saddle near the nose are already worn from chafing - after only 500...

    Would you buy a Ciclosport Hac4 or a Polar S720?

    Gibbo, Where in Greece do you live? I've spent every summer in Greece since I was born...my father used to "drag" us over there for the summer!! In the past few years, I've started to see more and more roadies tooling around in places like Voula (where my sister lives). Next year, you'll...

    Would you buy a Ciclosport Hac4 or a Polar S720?

    Hey Rech, doesn't the speed readout on the HAC still display in whole numbers, with no tenths? I realize the software display has tenths, but it bugged me that the unit itself did not, so i bought a CM 414M, since I already had a Polar HRM. I do think the HAC is a great product.

    My heart rate typically gets alot higher in my grievance committee work than it EVER gets in the plane!!! As for flying the bus, we are in shrinkage mode right now, so who knows when you'll get your chance (at Cactus). There's always JetBlue!

    Need Reviews on Ciclosport HAC4

    Kneighbour, The software has indeed been revised recently (past three months), and is a bit more useful. The gradient is not calculated by altitude and time, but by altitude and distance. There is no other way to calculate gradient. In my experience with the HAC, the gradient and altitude...

    WHO'S GONNA WIN THE TdF 2003?

    I have mixed feelings... I'd love for Tyler or Levi to win. It seems to me that a bit of arrogance has crept into Lance's demeanor - you can sense it in his interviews. Perhaps it was even a factor in his marital breakup. Shades of the pre-cancerous Lance from big, bad Texas!!! That said...
