Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

It’s crazy that you need software to shift your bike.

Time to get ready to ride. Today is likely my only ride this week as we will be in DC this weekend for a wedding.

I have the app, but I donít use it just to check battery status. Is there another way to check battery status without the app? Iíll delete it if there is?

Thatís why we canít have nice things.
This is why.

Anybody else have the bontrager ion pro light?

Just want some insight on battery life. I went out yesterday it was fully charged at the start. I had it on one of the flash setting and within 90 mins itwas showing a little more than half full on my garmin head unit. I didnít charge it last night and this morning it died completely after about 30 mins. This time head light was on and I am not sure which intensity. Garmin connect turns it on automatically, need to read into that some more.

So it lasted just over 2 hours. That doesnít seem right to me.

I don't have an Ion, but the Garmin basically sets "scenes," kind of like smart lighting at home. So you just go in to your lighting network settings and, for instance, tell it "daytime" and it'll do daytime flash for compatible lights, or "Nighttime" and it'll do full brightness on the headlight and pulse+flash for the tail. I mean, you can go in to the settings and control everything manually, but that kind of defeats the purpose of ANT+ lighting.

As predicted. There's nothing further we can do to assist you. Without you receipt, no warranty.
They killed my shiz with their crap firmware,, and are telling me to suck eggs.

yes @ 25% charge the axs lights will turn to amber, I think 10% they turn red. Just recharge the first of the month. Takes an hour per battery.
I would delete the app too. My firmware was all jacked up. I don't know how or why . If it can access wifi or blue tooth on its own but something changed it. No reason or way for the memory to become corrupted otherwise.

It's crazy that the parent co. Killed my shiz and are leaving me in the breeze because they don't like how I came to own it. I didn't need a warranty until I used there frigging firmware.

My my other workout numbers weren’t impressive, but I got my HR over 180 for about 30 seconds today. I’m amazed the thing can still go like that.

Negative. Was out riding with friends/clubmates. It was a little cool to start, but warmed up nicely with full sunshine and a pleasant breeze.

Prolly.

And I bet similarly, people complained to Dunlop that it’s crazy you “need” pneumatic tires. With solid ones you never have to worry about a flat.

A breeze is only pleasant if it's from behind.

I was checking the UPS tracking number on a package (shaving soap and aftershave), and I was excited to see that it was within the metro area, two days ahead of schedule.

....and then I noticed the field marked "Postal Service Tracking ID"

Yup, they're going to be handing it off to the USPS, so not likely to actually arrive early. Ugh, these damn hybrid shipments.

A 5 mph tailwind, on a steep climb on a hot day is considerably worse than a 5 mph headwind, because you ride in a chimney of your own heat. Even still air is better than a tailwind in that case.
