"Every now and then you run into a product that you never knew existed and wonder why you’d never heard of it before. That’s what happened with me and the Hammerhead Karoo bike computer. A Facebook ad immediately drew me in because of the amazing looking color screen. I contacted Hammerhead, and they sent me a Karoo GPS computer for review.

There were some nice additions to the Hammerhead Karoo’s features last week. As usual, these were a combination of adding some features that their competitors already have and then sneaking in a little innovation or two here and there. For those of you who do lots of hills, the upcoming course elevation graph gives a visual sense of the hills to come for the next two miles. You can zoom in or out from the default 2 miles ahead view as you ride and, for the data field to work, you must be following...
