Lukus's Questions
 
For use with 11 Speed chainsets. TA only make their chainrings from the best 7075 T6 heat treated aluminium sheet. For use with Compact Campagnolo chainsets.
 

11 spd outer rings for standard chainsets?

It appears that there are plenty aftermarket rings for compact chainsets are there any available in 50-51 for standard chainsets in 11 Speed?

If i give you all the measurements regarding my height, etc. is it possible for you to cut the integrated seatpost to proper size fit.

What kind of box does it ship in,(just concerned that the seatpost might get damaged), would also like to know if i can transport it in a bike bag.
Would also like you to inform me if the wheels on it are clincher wheels.
thanks

Fi'zi:k MicroTex is super tough, stretch resistant and breathable. Best looking, most comfortable tape of it's kind.
 

how do you install?

I have not installed bar tape before, how do you install? When I peel of the paper there does not seem to be any adhesive
Top 250 Contributor

It should be slightly tacky, start from the bar ends - in the drops and wrap outwards up, be stringent however leave enough at the bar ends to hold the plugs in.

Speed Calculations

Does this unit calculate speed via GPS or magnet, also how does it compute distance (via GPS again?). I am a little sceptical about the accuracy of magnet systems
Top 250 Contributor

Speed is calculated by GPS - lighting quick & accurate.

Is the Edge 500 compatible with Polar's Wearlink Coded Heart Rate Monitor belt?

i.e. coukld I wear the Polar belt I already own and have the Edge500 display the BPM data?
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
No it is not compatible, Polar transmitting system is W.I.N.D, Garmin uses the more common ANT+ system
