  • Anyone use them with q rings?
  • i think q rings aren't yet supported as per dc rainmakers blog post review.

    i have used the Vector S twice on the turbo and is very good for the money... my wife might disagree! lol

    seems to be very accurate based on my wattbike sessions and related FTP.

    Spent an hour this evening changing over the pedal to another bike. it kept saying "Calibrating..." on the calibration screen of the Edge 500. Turns out you need to have the HRM paired as well for the Calibration to work! what a load of manure....definitely a bug in that.

    Is this offer still valid? Tried it, got to the final stage of checkout, no offer coming up. If someone that it did work for could repeat the same steps and see if it is still valid that would be much appreciated. Thanks

    If you are training with power why do you need a HRM?
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    .
    You shouldnt be.. likewise you shouldnt be using your power meter just like an HRM.
    You should be logging all the data however.
    Using the accumulated data is then up to you to get best out of it which means a lot of homework studying the subject.. unless you can offload £xxx permonth for a qualified coach to do it for you.
    You can tell the guys who have PMs and really in brutal truth dont need them.
    Mine is just about 'paying' its way.
