Any durable HRM recommendation? Garmin ones lasted one or maximum 2 years only, then either the strap broke or the contacts get rusted

Guys I encountered a very peculiar problem regarding saddle height.

Previously I have used the "locked back of heel" method to determine my saddle height. While it is ok in most of the time, I noticed that occasionally when I was doing high rpm spins like about 75-90, I am bouncing on the saddle, which could mean I am twisting hips to compensate. This is an indication of bright set too high.

So I went to YouTube and search around, I have tested both the inseam X 0.883 method and the 109% methods, both give a height that is just 1-2 cm apart.
My issue is, both method's saddle height feels too low for me. So this is the pic after the height adjustment according to 109% method. Do you think it is too low? It is almost parallel height with the handlebar.

take the measurement of either method then minus 1.5cm, then work your way up by increasing the saddle height 3mm at a time, trial and error until you feel just nice.

After some re-adjustment, finally settled for a height which i guess is roughly just 5mm lower than previous height before all those 0.883 or 109% methods.

LPPL. pi mai pi mai tang tu.

because of the much lower height before, i find that my long ass saddle bag is grinding the tyre liao. have to take off and dump out my air pressure gague, the mini tripod and cable locks, only carry a spare tyre, hex key, and tyre levers in a mini saddle bag.  but the shitty thing is this small saddle bag is not blinker friendly, mount the blinker and it points down to the tyre. kanasai

then an idea came to me, why use saddle bag when i could just chuck everything into a drinking bottle, place it on the bottle cage, and leave the blinker nicely on seatpost? just that if i have to ride longer, i cannot bring 2 water bottles lah.

good to hear, most important no saddle sore especially during long ride

I think servicing is pretty much standardized, around 150-200. Parts too.

any bike mechanic here? want to ask a very technical question on 10 speed to 11 speed conversion.

basically you can reuse the crank and brake calipers, and the rest have to be changed (shifters, fd ,rd, cassette, chain)
