Riding with the Tigra Sport TRIO

Tigra Sport TRIOOkay, so who doesn’t like playing around with new cycling tech gadgets?  Yeah, so when the crew from Tigra Sport asked me if I’d like to try out their TRIO I was like “yeah, totally”.

I asked them to send me an iPhone mount as well because if it’s going to be a device synced to my phone, I want to have that hooked up as well.  So they sent along a MountCase Bike Forward mount as well.

Originally I agreed to trying out the TRIO because I thought it was something I could use to track my cadence when riding inside on the trainer.  But after trying a couple times to make that happen.  I honestly don’t have enough time to devote to figuring how to make something like this work, so I basically left it alone.

I do want to provide a little review of their product, but I’ll mainly have to peel information from their website because I didn’t get any first hand information.

For a quick look at what the Tigra TRIO does, have a look at their user guide:

In a nutshell, the TRIO offers 3 in 1 abilities as it provides continuous heart rate monitoring, bicycle cadence, and running cadence.  Oh, and it works with all the popular fitness apps such as Strava, MapMyFitness, Endomondo, Runkeeper, and Rutastic.

I know most of you cyclists have a bike mount computer or just run Strava off your phone….but I think this product would be beneficial to triathletes for sure.  I’m not one of them, but the TRIO would easily allow you to track your cycling and running performance along with your heart rate.  Slick and smooth.  At $100, the price is decent as well.

Feel free to ask me any questions about this one, but that’s about all I’ve got for you this time around.

    Hi Darryl,

    Just discovered your site via AllTop, loving your posts, especially the outriding the bad diet post!
    Out of interest, what was the issue with the TRIO and your indoor trainer, or did you never get to the bottom of that? I’m big on indoor training over the winter, and this looks like a cool product to use for those indoor sessions!

    Cheers,
    Tom

      Hey Tom, thanks for your comment. I was thinking that the TRIO could be used to track cadence while on a stationary bike or trainer, but when I tried it I couldn’t seem to get it to track anything. I might look into it further down the road, but just haven’t had the time to research it any more.

      If I find out anything, or if you do….let’s talk.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
