    iPod/iPhone Gear App

    Lurkin for some time now...decided to register finally.

    Anyhow...has anyone seen or used this? I know its essentially the same thing you can get all over the net. It'd be handy for quickly putting friends to shame . Just wondering if the interface is nice and worth the trouble...and for those who havent seen it: here ya go!

    First off, I don't skid. It tears up the trails. Second, why the hell would I want to calculate it and brag about it? ????

    didn't want to make a new thread, so is 52 gear inches reasonable?

    Actually, it's a cool app. I have it on my iPhone. Skid patches is just one of the things it calculates; it also does gear inches, equivalent gearings, approximate speed based on cadence at a given gear ratio, and so on and so forth.

    Apologies for cluttering as I didn't search initially thinking was new news. I was looking for a little more information than "nice app" as was found in the other thread anyhow. Thanks for the warm welcome though!

    ...and welcome to America where its spelled "button".

    Even more wrongerer. I use a BB Pearl. Coolest phone I've ever owned. After all those iPhone ads ran for months on tv, I bought this 8100 and it does everything they do for about 1/4 of the price.

    The app is great. Clean interface and useful info while you are working in the garage. I requested that in the next version to integrate the magic gear formula. Hopefully that will happen. But all in all, for a free app it works well.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
