I’ve been using a combination of Trails and Run Keeper to keep track of my cycling. Both have their plus points but neither use ANT+, the wireless technology that hooks up to heart rate monitors and cadence sensors for example. Pedal Brain, to be released early in 2010 looks like the perfect all-round solution. Available for iPod and iPhone, Pedal Brain is an ANT+ compatible training solution which stores performance data online. There’s no indication of monthly pricing yet but the Synapse mount which is used to hold your iPhone on your bike looks like it’s going to cost around £120, slightly more for the carbon version.
Turn your bike into a hybrid E-Bike with the Copenhagen Wheel. Designed by MIT, the wheel uses energy dissipated while cycling and braking. A built in sensing unit maps pollution levels, traffic congestion, and road conditions in real-time and can be linked to a mobile using Bluetooth which allows the user to monitor the bike as well as lock the wheel as well as change gear.
