      Comments about Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer:

      I'm new to the GPS game, so when replacing my old computer, I gave the Garmin 5000 a shot because it had the features I was looking for and it was a great deal with the 20% discount. I bought the heart rate strap, but not the speed and cadence kit which Nashbar doesn't carry for this model?? It was easy to set up and works well - the HR link is easy to establish and accurate. The speed and distance is a bit dodgy in the countryside where I live, but fine for my level. If I were a bit more serious, I would find the speed and cadence kit. I really like the Garmin route software and data available about the route and ride - good stuff at a good price.

        The Edge 500 has been around for quite some time. This is my second one as the first one was lost. It is a good enough GPS and offers a lot of information for the serious cyclist. And of course it can be connected to Garmin via computer.
        One issue I have is that the sensor arm that attaches to the chainstay is prone to breaking. I have lost 2 of them that way.

                My wife wanted to upgrade from her "runner" that the battery was going out on.
                This one is way better that the runner. Already had the cadence sensor on her bike and it paired up by itself in a matter of seconds. So far she loves it and that means I'm happy. A little pricey but what Garmin isn't. Nashbar had the best price on this by far.

                  I continually forget to shut the timer off at breaks thus accurate average speed is lost. Eventually I will remember to stop and start at water breaks!

                    Comments about Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer:

                    You may already have a bike computer for speed, cadence, distance and heart rate to see what is happening while you ride. The Edge 500 does all this and also stores the information for you to download to Garmin Connect on your computer where you can see a map of your ride with an analysis of elevation, speed, heart rate, cadence and temperature. With a 20% discount sale on at Nashbar you can buy the Edge 500 for $160. In my opinion there is nothing close to it for the money.

                    On the down side - you will need to buy a heart strap and speed/cadence monitor separately if you do not already have them. And, Garmin Connect software is pretty basic for training, but there is plenty of other free training software out there - Strava is possibly the most popular.
