I'm 5'6" and about 135. And I wear a small in LG. This jersey will have a racer fit, but not that next-to-skin-euro-racer fit. Over all I'd say they run true.
You can use the phone as a view finder and adjust all the camera settings on the fly with the phone, but you can not use it as a playback device. Keep in mind the Contour is a camera for capturing and not a true playback device to begin with. Even when connected to your PC/Mac, the video is a bit jumpy when playing back directly off the contour. It is great if you take the time to put it on your computer for playback. So because of this, there is no playback option built into connectview.
Rudy The most important piece of a short is the chamois (padding). Keep in mind that thicker is not usually better. Fit (# of panels used to make the short) and compression (material used) are two other characteristics to look at too. The Equipe is a relatively high-end short at a great price. It is the short that I wear most often from LG. It has our airgel chamois and excellent fit. In general, anything over about $120 is probably going to be worth picking up.
So, go highest level chamois you can afford, then pick the most panels you can afford then there is always how good the whole kit looks together!
Best of luck!
Yes it is. This does not come in a black only option. So the black is really the black and blue you see above.
Spence This is the correct camera; however, you do need to additionally purchase the ConnectView chip to put into the camera and download the app for your smart phone for it to work. It does not come ready-to-go-out-of-the-box for blue tooth.
There is a great deal of adjustablility in the baggies. I think you will be fine with the L. I have to "size down" in these myself.
Its hard to get a true sense of a color in a photo, there are so many variables, but I'd say look at a few of the images posted here from other happy LG Equipe owners. The pics you see there are pretty true. I think they look closer to the real color than what you see in the RC.com images.
The camera records in a .mov format so any readily free software should work. I use the editor that came with my windows machine. If you are trying to open a contour file and your computer keeps opening with Quicktime, that is a computer issue. You have quicktime set to open any .mov file. I believe you can right click on the file and use the open with option to use another software.
These are designed in Canada at Louis Garneau Sports and manufactured in China. I hope this helps. Cheers!
I'm sure you would look great in anything! But the way compression works, it can be tough on many body types. LG has redesigned a few compression pieces that are specific to the female anatomy over the males. Check out the LG neo power fit short: http://www.realcyclist.com/louis-garneau-neo-power-fit-short-womens The "half-moon" compression panel on the outside vs the full-wrap compression on most shorts works better with a females legs.

Let me know if you have questions between these two.
They are completely black. No Grey. Photography is a funny business.
Brad, you can't go wrong with either. But here is what I have to say. Equipe is proven technology from the material to the chamois. I ride these. Mondo is the next big thing. I so want to ride these, but my samples are in M and I wear a S (and I'm a lazy ass and haven't upgraded to the proper size). So while I haven't tried them completely yet, the anecdotal reports I get from my fellow reps is that they are phenomenal.
Proven Tech: Equipe
Newest Gen: Mondo
HAHAHAHA! Bikin' Bikin', I have to agree with you!
It is only water resistant, which means you can use it as is around moisture (aka snow, rain), but you can not submerge it or should not use it as is around water. When Kayaking for example. To protect it for kayaking, surfing, etc. get the waterproof case. You can still operate all the buttons while it is in the case. Cheers!
Keep in mind that the camera is water resistant as is. It can handle snow, rain, etc. You just can't take it under water without the waterproof case. So unless you are surfing, kayaking or the like, you will not need the waterproof case.
These might work, but this is what I suggest:
The wind stopper in the front is ideal!
Kristen. You are correct. The number corresponds to size of the shoe. The 925 is larger than the 822.
822 = 60 - 140 lbs (with pack)
925 = 80 - 160 lbs (with pack)
