This is a perfect topic for the regional discussions and I'm hoping that moving it there will help to get people to use the regional discussion areas more.

I have not tried any of the phone tracking apps. I do have a Garmin eTrex Vista Hcx that I quite like and use as my cycling computer (among many other things).How do you like the eTrex Vista Hcx when using it as a cycling computer. Do you mount it to your handlebars? If so does it seem rather larger when placed there? In general how does it compare to a regular cycle computer when out riding. I would love to be able to bring the data home but was hoping for something very small in size or at least close to cycle computer size that would allow me to record way points and other data perhaps to a MicroSD card.

Also could somebody please tell me how in the name of Phil Prince of Insufficient Light I can get a picture to actually appear in my profile, I've ticked the "I will upload my own picture" option in Forum Profile Information and selected a picture of 80x80 pixels, clicked the "Change Profile" button, but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
On the Adventure Cyling website they have articles about ultra light mountain bike touring. Everything carried in a big seatbag or seatpost rack bag. Light and minimal. And they are camping out and cooking too.Here is a direct link to this article:
