WHAT HE RIDES
Caleb Bottcher rides the Shimano XTR and Shimano 105 Power Meters
WHAT STAGES PRODUCTS DOES CALEB USE? MTB and Road Power Meters and the M200 Dash
CALEB'S FAVORITE DASH FEATURES: My favorite feature is being able to change the size of each data field on each screen. Most other computers only have preset options. I also enjoy how I can easily send a course from Strava to the dash which is handy. On my front page I have the power, hour, time, and lap time. The second page holds my power wheel. The third has my power stats and the last holds the distance and elevation.
