Not trying to challenge or argue.

Inquiring minds want to know....

The first got lost when the Chinese mount I bought for a second bike came undone. Spent an hour looking for it, and couldn't find (on Tahoe Rim Trail)

The second one survived 10 minutes in the washing machine a few times, but couldn't survive my wifes extra soak, double spin, super duper wash cycle she likes to use on bike clothes.

I searched and read DC Rainmaker until my eyes turned blue, and I still went back to the Wahoo Elmnt Bolt about a month ago.

It actually still worked, but the elevation numbers got all wonky. Wahoo gave me a code for a 40% crash replacement discount.
Wow. I had no idea. thanks for the tip, I will email them and ask for a discount code for the next time I screw up!
