David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.

I got my Edge 810 off some bloke on Facebook for £110 (including all the european maps and the accessories) who was upgrading. 

Good way of getting a bargain IMO, it works fine, just had to spend a while deleting all the guy's old rides!
