So I just received my new Garmin edge 500 bundle for Xmas and have some questions. I've been searching the internet religiously for the last couple of days trying to find answers to a few of my questions, but to no avail.
First, I am aware that there are only 3 programmable bikes you can enter into the unit. However, I have 2 road bikes and 4 mountain bikes (soon to be 5). Does anyone have a "work around" for situation such as this? Can you have more than 3 speed/cadence sensors for situations like this? Is it possible to say... Have my two road bike remain as individual bikes on the 500 while the third bike is for all my mountain bikes and I just adjust the bike stats before I switch between the mountain bikes? Or would adjusting the mtb stats before each ride, assuming of course I'm using a differ bike with differ stats, screw up previous ride stats?
I guess what I'm getting at is... I'm willing to have a different speed/cadence sensor for each bike and adjust the 3rd bikes edge setting depending on which bike I'm using. I just don't want it to screw up previous ride data once it's downloaded, assuming of course that would even happen?!
Anyone in a similar situation as I find myself in? Any recommendations? Super excited to start logging data, but I'd like to use it for training purposes and keep everylthing in tact as much as possible.
Thanks in advance for feedback!!!
