When starting your device, it acquires sttaelites progressively, then the altitude accuracy is not good at the beginning, so starting altitude and final altitude are not identical if you ride a loop.
Other possible cause is that the cumulation of small errors makes cumulative altitude to vary.
Garmin connect offers a feature that corrects the altitude by smoothing the waypoints, and also by using topology points.
Go to
Then upload your data from your garmin device to the garmin connect database, and use the feature named "altitude correction" bottom left of the screen where your ride is detailed

Drive way is 11'wide and 26'long, and 6 thick and 4000psi. Apron18 by 2'5. 2 walking blocks 5'by5',22 linear feet of curb 2 sidewalk blocks 600.00 and snap back walkway3'x35'. Total 7616.00. what?

the driveway is 146 cubic ft of material but to get the rest you have to have a 3rd dimension to get it to cubic capacity
so apron is 18 ? by2.5 fy by ? thick
blocks 5 X5 ft X ?
22 linear feet requires l X B X depth to get cubic measurement (linear measure is just a length measurement--not a volume measurement)
side walk blocks of 600 is no measurement in cubic measurement
snap back walk ways 3 X 35 ' X? to get cubic ft
if you have a total of 200 what --cubic feet , cubic yards
I'm guessing here but I take it that you want to know how much concrete you will need to do the job

Feet do not touch flat on the ground. Need to lower ride height by a couple or few inches

The ride height is determined by a couple of things, the suspension and the seat. If you can, try to find a different seat because lowering the bike effects the handling characteristics so much. Anytime you lower a bike, you reduce the "lean angle" which hampers you when you make turns. If you can't find a lower saddle, you can lower the bike. It depends on what year and model bike it you have. You didn't say. There are companies that make lowering kits for most bikes. Progressive is one of the more popular companies.

Good Luck

Hi,i want to put a steering damper on my 2006 zx6r c6f and i cant afford a new one,i have been told that certain years of the zx10r fit but dont know which,please can you help me.

My research shows that the damper also fits ZX10R (2004-2005). I would use caution when crossing bike parts. The part numbers are the same with a suffix letter different. This indicates a variation in the part. So although it may bolt up and perform the same, there is some difference.
Ride Safe.

What are some quality, affordable bicycles for someone that wants to begin cycling?want to begin cycling, not with a BMX bike, but an actual cycling bicycle. What are some quality and affordable bicycles...

The cost of the hobby varies from a couple of hundred dollars to tens of thousands. What you need to do is first figure out what you can afford and give a realistic decision on what type of riding you will be doing (IE going a couple of miles to the store, or 100 mile long rides) This will make a big difference in the type of bike you need.

Next visit your local bike shops and ride a few in your price range. A lot of cycling is preference. Bikes are built for different fits, so what fits my body may not be comfortable to you.

Good brands for low end bikes are the popular brands: Specialized, Trek, and Canondale. For the most part the more money you spend the better bike you get. There is a huge difference between a $200 bike and a $2,000 bike. A good starting price point is about $800 to $1000. If thats out of your range there are cheaper options, but that is the range with some quality.

If it has a mono shock in back there are lowering links you can purchase and install to lower the rear and the front can be lowered by dropping the tubes in the trees or softening up the springs.
I would like to make a suggestion though...
If you lower the bike the suspension will not work as it was designed to.
This is an issue I am trying to overcome with my boy since we have moved to a bigger bike- he can not touch the ground without leaning the bike WAY over. To quote a famous short moto cross racer from the 70's- "they dont pay me to put my feet down". Even I at 6' 2" find it difficult to rest both feet on the ground on some of the newer dirt bikes. But if I do find one that I can rest both feet on the ground comfortably I soon find that I am bottoming out the suspension and riding over the limits of the bike.
This is just my personal opinion... I would rather ride a tall off road bike and have the suspension at hand than ride one thats comfortable at rest and not have that suspension when I need it. Unless you are going to be stopping at a bunch of stop signs then ride it the way it is or get a smaller bike ( maybe a 125).
