followed the simple log on process to register the SPOT Trace device on their website, I immediately began to use the system. Users are able to view their valuables, in my case, my Scott Hybrid, using GPS co-ordinates on their smartphone or online using Google Maps. I set the parameters to alert me once the device’s vibration sensor was triggered, which sent me a text message to my mobile telephone (which I had specified on their website). The system also allows you to specify a rate at which any updates will be sent. I especially liked the automated power-off alert, which sends GPS co-ordinates to the owner, helping to recover lost or stolen assets. The system is relatively affordable with a reasonable price of 125 euros. The only catch is you need to have a service plan to utilise the device. A range of service plans start at 119 euros per year or just 11.50 euros per month. Extreme Tracking upgrade is another 99 euros or 9.99 euros per month


I loved this piece of kit and if you are precious about your two wheels then this is a definite ‘MUST’ to ease some of the usual security concerns.


my upstrokes and downstrokes. With performance and training being a


real growth sector in cycling, the Tangent Trainer is a great way to improve your all-round riding dynamics and reduce significantly any wasted effort associated with the upstroke. The device has been designed for use in a training environment


and not for use on the road. I was slightly dubious about the benefits before I used the device but after a week I found my pedalling action was significantly smoother both visually and physically. It is claimed that with this more efficient pedalling action an overall improvement in your hamstrings and hip flexors can be made, however I have no


evidence to confirm either way. In conclusion, the Tangent Trainer is


a great piece of kit, it definitely helped me improve my pedal action and I am now more aware of maintaining a more focused approach to my pedalling and maybe I might eventually end up with calves the size of Sir Chris Hoy!
