Anyone use a little vasoline on the pick ups for a better connection?

Can just destroy the condom and I don't want that good of a connection with my pick ups.

Many bike shops/online bike websites sell electrode cream.

I use spit myself. It's pretty cheap.

That's what I've been doing but lately when I ride it isn't warm enough to really sweat and after a while it seems to dry and then the HRM becomes very inaccurate

I just got one earlier this year, and I have problems with that too... being a scrawny bony-chested kind of guy, the center part of the chest strap sits on a little bony spot that sticks out on the center of my ribs, and I have to pull the strap really tight for the pickups to even really touch my skin.

Even when it feels way too tight, it'll sometimes get flaky. Although the weirdest thing is that sometimes instead of reading '0' it'll jump back and forth between 150-something and 220-something, as if I could get my hr that high without collapsing!

I just make sure the strap is tight, and put some water on it before I ride. I haven't tried the special electrode gel stuff.
