Hi
i go on day rides but sometimes I run low on power. I usually have a Garmin 500, iPhone se, and a small shuffle. I use the later for music through sennhieser $25 headphones. The shuffle has run out of power twice because of user error. But it’s great bc it’s simple. The garmin has never but I don’t use the route function much. The iPhone has run down to 20%. Between the 3 I don’t see the reason for a hub. Nor do I see a reason for running turn by turn color directions that drain battery. I live in Taiwan so the phone coverage is 95%. Why run a bunch of electronics on a bike ride? I think I’m running too many. I agree with the user who wrote about using a vhf radio and phone for emergency. By the way it’s also good for me to leave them all behind on rides to prove my addiction.
