What tri goodies did you get for Christmas?
Quote | Reply
Any other winter holiday also acceptable.

I got the cycliq cycling "dashcam." Kinda morbid to buy this thinking, well if anyone plows over me from behind we can use this to find the driver who did it.

I also got 4 pairs of swim goggles, my kids always take them and lose them.

I am reminded I also got a Sony M4 Aqua phone. Completely waterproof and has the ant+ chip in it.

I got the Z5 premium yesterday with the same waterproofing as the M4. Do you plan on using it on deck? I was looking for something for immediate feedback while swimming and found the iPad with life proof a bit bulky. IE not post swim analysis but something that athletes can see right away.

Merry Christmas!

None. People know better than to buy tri stuff. How would they to know which one would work for me?

I had the xperia z1 previously, but I found out some things.

1. The water protection is fine for accidental falls into the water, assuming that the doors are closed. However if you try to get underwater video with it, you will see water intrusion. I did but it never caused a problem. Earlier this year Sony came out and said not to use the phone underwater. I also caught wind that if you try to make a replacement claim and you used it underwater they will say you didn't have the doors closed, won't replace it.

2. but yes, I used my Z1 for instant feedback with swimmers on above water videos, and the one or two times I dropped it while reaching forward to get the good shot, it went in the pool and it's fine. I will use the M4 the same way. I use V1 sports premium for slow motion playback and freeze frame as well - it's the only app I could find for android to do that. It's $5 and well worth it. It's made for golf but served the purpose just fine.

3. Go ahead and lookup Z5 dust cover, or Z5 waterproof cover, or Z5 waterproof door and pay the $10 to have them shipped. Your covers will fall off, matter of when not if. Sony will charge you $80 to replace, but they just slip in there. So have those things sitting in a drawer at your house.

4. On a similar note, for underwater instant feedback the fujifilm xp50 or 60 or 120 or whatever works very well. You can mount it to a 3/4" PVC pole with a pole mount and also get instant feedback with freeze frame right on the camera. The drawback here is that the screen is 2.7", so it's doable but not optimal. I have not yet found another waterproof video camera that has on camera playback with freeze frame and has a larger screen.

Just went to put the Cycliq Fly 6 on my bike.

I have a softride - no seat tube - nowhere to attach the rear facing camera.

I also have a titanflex, maybe the same problem.

Anyone dealt with this!

Wife got me two pairs of goggles, a new rear tire and a Power 2 Max meter. Special Ops 2.0 - clear and Blue Seventy Hydra Vision - yellow. She told me to decide and we would send the others back so I will give them a full season test so I can make the best decision. I really can't take the yellow ones off since it enhances the tv so much. They may become my running glasses, safety work glasses, reading glasses, watching tv glasses, shooting glasses and swimming glasses. The P2M may go back though since my ten minute test ride on the trainer recorded REALLY low power. I guess it could be me but...come on...I have learned a few things on this forum and one of them is it is obviously the equipment.

For the Titanflex there is often enough seat post above the beam (depends on your setup).

I have a toolbag there that gets in the way, I checked it.

But the softride is my road bike and the bigger issue, not sure I will be able to get into aero position again, so the titanflex is low priority.

I'd look for a way to lash it to the rear qr lever. That will also address the bounce issue due to the beam.

Thanks Kevin, I knew it said water proof but the fine print says not intentionally water proof. I love the phone but for under water with real time feed back it looks like back to the iPad. We have a go pro but no Wifi at the pool, also tried the under water camera from an athlete but the screen is too small to see for some.

Cheers,
Maurice

I got this to go on the wall in my pain cave. Big sentimental value for me.. the race came within a few miles of my house and I'm only about 20 mins ride from Holme Moss. Yet I was expecting to miss out because my son was due to be born the same weekend! But the little ripper came 5 days early and I was able to go!


Also got 6 bottes of London craft pale ale. AndSome running gloves. More excited about the ale..

Unrelated but as a coincidence, I get my 4th b'day present Tuesday - 20 months since ordering. A saffron frameworks sram cx and Chris king throughout black on black - in fact the whole thing is black - custom cx / gravel / do it all bike. Got photo of it Xmas eve and it looks like the absolute dogs b*locks. (And as much as some people are not fans it is front and rear hydraulic discs and front and rear thru axles)

Read an article about the Swim IT this fall. Showed it to my spouse at the beginning of Dec knowing that it would end up as a Christmas present. She's all about anything water safety related. Now I have to wait until May, or a winter FL vacation, to try it. I think it would be semi-dorky to test it (I mean actually deploy it) in a pool.
