Realised I'd not responded to this dude. Sorry

I hear what you are saying, and for the cash the 530 has a lot going for it, but its only breadcrumb guidance (such as you would link on a lower spec Garmin), not turn-by-turn. The maps are non-zoomable I understand meaning its less easy to interpret on a ride, its not got higher end stuff stuff like Strava Live segements, live tracking etc (admittedly I don't use these - yet) , and from the reviews I've seen its not that intuitive to navigate the menus. Again maybe a limitation on a ride

The mapping limitations are big issue for me. In the end (with quidco cashback) I paid about 20 quid more than the 530 for I believe a much more performant solution.

Don't get me wrong, the 530 seems a good unit for the cash, but I think these units Element (and Bolt) units are much better value - when at these sale prices of course.

Just my opinion and YMMV

I have one, It's way better than my old Garmin.

Don't be put off by the monochrome screen. Colour screens look good in the shop but when you are out in brilliant sunlight and wearing polarised sunglasses colour screens can be a nightmare. It can be very hard to distinguish the difference between your route and track and an A road or motorway. Whereas on the Wahoo your route, track and roads remain totally clear no matter how bright the sunlight is.

It's good to know they perform well, it's just the historic Crank Bros reputation for 1) pedals that fall apart after a while and 2) awful customer service, which I'm not keen on trying. Helps that I only ride flats though.

Never bother with expensive bike brands for cleaning. Swarfega oil and grease remover you can get for about half the price of this, stronger too! great used neat for chains and gears or diluted in a spray bottle for the rest of the bike.

It's good stuff, if in doubt just google "swarfega bike cleaning"

Not a bad price, but you can get 2 of these from MandP for £24.98 or 3 for £37.47. Free postage over £25, so grab something cheap and get 2 for around the £25 mark

You'll need a rack (probably a thin one for those clips to mount to - maybe get the bags first and take one with you when you go rack shopping?). First check you bike has mounting points for a rack (most do but not all). Beware attachment hooks, etc which could get into the wheel and cause an accident!

I'd suggest reading the many poor reviews - not necessarily to put you off as these really do seem very cheap but so that you'll know the potential weak points. I suspect many of the clips have broken because the racks are too thick for them.

Be aware that if you fill these up with heavy stuff (eg groceries) the balance of your bike will be seriously affected and you may find yourself doing unintended wheelies!

Yeah it hooks around the pannier rack and clips back onto the pannier. I have these and have not had any issues with them, although I don’t use them very often, hence why I bough a cheap pannier. If you need a set for daily use I’d spend some more money but if you use them once or twice a week they should lastyou a long time.

I use the Crivit pannier bags. I bought them from Lidl three years ago ( £10.00 ) and use them at least twice a week i.e I remove them after each trip. They have a water proof bag contained in a zip pocket on the under side. Attached by clips and backed up by a Velcro strap. Inside they have a zip pocket and down each side a sleeve that will hold largish bottles etc. NB. I do most of my food shopping by bike so these sometimes hold quite heavy loads. I would have no hesitation in buying them again when and if these two pack up.

The frilly undies?? While I was working for Cotton Traders.

The stupid thing is, I was the LAST person in the supply chain, yet no one else had spotted it, even though it was in a clear cellophane bag.

The 5XL that just fitted a 2 y/o came from a trader in Guangzhou; I bought a lot of VERY nice (silk) outfits from him, but this one was a teeny tiny bit smaller than expected. Luckily it was all dirt cheap (relatively speaking), and it went down a storm in the dressing up box at our old nursery school.
Sadly, I have lost his details (blame the Police).

Cycling clothing is notoriously often much smaller than the sizes you imagine. For example, I just received a pair of XXL cycling tights that just fit when my measurements for them indicated that I only need a L.
