oh by the way, i have been using my phone as bike comp all this while. that last ride, the phone batt died when i havent complete the ride, and the resultant data has error that i cannot upload to strava, kinda wasted.

now i am thinking of buying a dedicated bike-comp, i definitely cannot afford wahoo or garmin, i am looking at Brytons now (310, 320, 410 or 420). but at the same time there is this kickstarter-made XOSS that has similar features as a bryton yet priced almost 1/3 of the above. any opinions?
*
I had tried both bryton 310 and 330, their data screen always lag and takes a long time to upload data. better get the newer 4-series, been using 450 without any complains for a year.

Am using bryton 320...felt it was okay. However nowdays I use it to seey speed etc ....upload to strava etc is using my Garmin vivoactive watch.....bryton is redundant now ..but useful to see speed and cadence instead of looking at watch.
*
I was using it to show data while riding on trainer so I noticed the speed, cadence, elapsed time will often go blank or stuck then skip to another number after 5-10 seconds

Another complain is that syncing rides to phone will take a long time, and for longer rides above 100km will often get stuck (end up have to connect to pc to extract the fit file and upload manually. Don't expect to use the auto-upload feature for audax rides doh.gif

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

what exactly is broken? the strap? or the sensor?
if only the strap, u can just buy cheapo china heart rate strap on shopee. less than rm20.
i'm using one for a year already.

btw my original garmin hrm strap lasted 7 years. the sensor, 9 years this year and still going.

It's not unusable yet but I worry it will spoil soon. Just a little less than 2 years

ask taiko sini, i placed a deposit with specialized store for the allez elite, i have my reasons going aluminium laa

i'm short at 163cm, bike fit based on allez sizing is 52 which is crazy, but a 49 should be nice.

With the RETUL, the shop strongly advise me get the recommended size of 44 from the RETUL result of 44/49.

I was like...aaa...their reasoning is as usual, you can sikit size up a smaller frame with stems, higher this that, but you cannot reduce something too much on a bigger frame. AND, they cakap with my saddle height and the 49 bike size, it would not look COOL, will look more like P RAMLEE basikal with seat post very low.

What say taiko here?
*
maybe they are trying to push you to get the size 49 because that's what they have in the shop right now. insist on the size recommended by the bike fitter cool2.gif

They are not pushing for any size, since they have size 44 and size 49 incoming and i can choose either one. they are recommending me the 44, but strongly advise against me if i want to get 49. So that factor not inside la.
*
I take back what I said about the shop then. I'm was assuming that the shop asked you to get the size 49 instead of the size 44. As mentioned by undentifiedKC, always take the smaller size when its in between.


To share my own observation of using a size 47 bike (Java brand, not Specialized so not a direct comparison), the down sides of using a small sized frame are the ease of using the both the bottle cages on the down tube and seat tube, make sure you get the type of cages that can remove from either left/right side; otherwise it will difficult to put the bottles back when riding.

Another thing to take note is to make sure your seat post length is within the recommended height of the seat post itself
