General Discussion / Re: Newbie here with ???????
« on: August 31, 2009, 11:46:08 am »
The first paragraph of my message above was a quote from  another member.  I can't figure out how you guys do this quote thing so it says "quote from...."  Can anyone tell me how this works?  I'm kind of a computer "newbie".  thanks for any directions you can give!
Hi John,
On each individual post there should be a link in the upper right hand corner that says, "Reply with quote". If you choose that it should add the message you want to quote with the quote tags around it. That is what instructs the forums to add the quote from heading and show that portion of the post as a quote. When you give it a try you will see how it adds the quotes and you can remove a portion of the post at that point if you want or need to. Hope this helps!

I'm not of much help on this topic but I have heard good things about this beer. Sounds like it might be one to keep and eye out for.

Well, the crank arms themselves are most likely in good shape but the actual chain rings might be worn or the bottom bracket might need replacing. If the chain rings are so worn that the chain is starting to skip it would be wise to replace the rear cassette, chain rings and chain all at the same time as replacing individual pieces will accelerate wear on the whole set. If your bottom bracket does not spin smoothly or makes noise it may be time for that to be replaced. Your local bike shop should be able to help determine these issues.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already.  Hope this is what you are looking for.
Thanks for pointing it out, I didn't know this section existed. But it only answers half of what I was looking for. The way it is set up, only the folks doing the ride can add their "ride". I was hoping a section could be added to the forum for websites/blogs that members of this board have discovered could share with other readers.
We are looking into ways to highlight different blogs in the future either on our main site or our blog. In the meantime anyone could start a forum thread that lists cycling blogs and asks others to contribute. Thanks for passing along the ideas.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already. Over in our Ride Registry there is a link for online journals. Choosing this link will allow you to see all of the rides that people have entered that included a link to an outside journal. Hope this is what you are looking for.

This topic has been moved to South Atlantic.
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.

GPS Discussion / Re: Has anyone tried Sportypal?

Thanks for all the great info about your Vista Hcx. It sounds like a product I should look into further.

I'm running firefox 3.0.10 and IE 7.0.573.11.

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).

I load up the GPX files into a web hosting account (I use the free Google Pages), run a Javascript function on them, and then generate maps to display.  If you or anyone else is interested in displaying their GPS tracks on Google Maps for free, I will be happy to provide detailed instructions.

For example:
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. 

I tried to check out your map link but I'm just getting a blank map in both firefox and ie.

A quick google search makes it seem that they are in the $320 - $350 range. Here are a  couple of web retailers selling them.

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?

It seems that there are some issues with uploading your own personalized photo. I tried it and could get it to work with some images but not others. I would not get an error when it did not work and it just refreshed the page and my old image was still there. The forums are set to accept .jpg or .gif images as attachments for this purpose and they need to be under 200kb. The image I was able to make work was a .gif and was 41 x 47 pixels. I posted a message on the smf forums support board asking about this issue and will report back if I get an answer.

Gear Talk / Re: Computer Install Question on LHT - Placement on Spoke
« on: April 24, 2009, 11:33:05 am »
Moving the sensor and magnet up or down along the spoke and fork leg should not make any difference as the entire length of the spoke will always be rotating at the same speed/spot. As long as the wheel size does not change you should be good.
