It was a great bike. Reliable and sturdy.
But over the years, I’ve gotten other bikes with more bells and whistles.
Are they better? Well, it depends.
What are your objectives? Your goals? Your market situation?
In other words, do you need gears or do you live in a totally flat town? Is this for transportation or for a hobby? Are you going to ride on the street or on trails? Do you want a lower maintenance solution? Are you prepared for the time and cost of upkeep?
And that’s how I think about monitoring tools these days. The newest, fanciest tools aren’t for everyone. Sometimes, basic is better.
