After lots of research I arrived at the conclusion that the easiest way to add a power meter to my current bike (based on crankset, bottom bracket, etc.) was via a pedal-based meter. Happy to report that the offset between these pedals and my indoor trainer was minimal, if any, which has meant a smooth transition and consistent power whether riding indoors or out. And if I change bikes in the future I am assured that these will remain compatible.
I splurged on the two-sided version to get the extra data, but I don't actually see how to access it and now I'm questioning whether it's compatible with my current head unit. Something I didn't research ahead of time. I would probably recommend to save a bit and get the one-sided version, but if you go for two-sided make sure your head unit is compatible.
I've seen other reviews that suggest that the clip-in action on these is less secure than non-power pedals, but that has not been my experience. I've actually found these to be more secure than my previous pedals, even on the loosest setting.
Overall I'm still happy with the purchase. And maybe someday I'll get a new head unit and unlock the additional data.
Well, I switched to 965 from Fenix 6/7X and I would say that I'm not feeling it on my wrist. So light, so comfortable. The screen is crisp and internals are the same with Fenix 7/7X pro big brothers. The silicon band is so cozy than it was before. My friend also changed his F6 to 965 and he do play tennis, so he also doesnt feel it on a wrist. Data recording and other body parameter are in top, no issues here. I hardly recommend to switch to this model. By the way, when you sleep and your hand under a pillow, you will not feel that bump on a pillow )))
Bought the Edge 1030 for a new road bike. It's big, a LOT bigger than the Edge 130 I have on another road bike.
PROS: Big display, easy to read (when the sun hits it or if its dark and the backlight turns on), LOTS of data, and long battery life. And a laundry list of features, more than I'm likely to use more than a few times a year if/when I explore new routes.
CONS: It's big. I mean HUGE! It makes the older Edge 130 on my other bike look tiny. So, be sure you want this big of a computer hanging off the front of your bike.
SET UP: Standard Garmin set up. Takes a bit of time to get the data screens to show exactly what you want (if you're really picky and choose not to use their default data fields).
I had always used Garmin, but 16 months ago I went with the new Hammerhead Karoo 2. Well that unit simply died. Hammerhead customer service sucks. So I did some research and decided on the new Garmin 840 that easily integrated with the new Shimano Di2 with no additional widgets. I hate the whole set-up process with new computers, but I dinged on a couple youtube videos and this thing was a breeze. It ain't cheap but it is an awesome computer.
