Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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".

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.
