It's still an iBike. At least it's in a weatherproof enclosure or it would really be pointless.

Looking over the display and features at the ibike website, this would be a cool display and computer for a DFPM. However, not sure about putting my iPhone on the stem of my bike...already cracked/destroyed a Garmin Edge 500 earlier this year in a crash.

meh. For the price of the full version you may as well get a powertap that is actually a real deal power meter.

Thanks, but I'll keep my iphone for calls, music and occasional map reference purposes.

Fail!
4 hour battery life?
$850 plus the cost of your iPhone?
Huge!
On to the next one...

I'd say the real fail is in bumping a thread a week dead. Congrats.
