This is via bike rumor, (thanks) I could never explain this in such detail, so here you go. Enjoy, I think this will change race/training game in alot of ways...
PedalBrain is a new iPhone / iPod app and hardware that provides a complete training partner. The carbon fiber base houses an ANT+ receiver to pull data from compatible speed, cadence, heart rate and power meters, then displays it on screen.
You can upload workouts before the ride and have the complete timing and information for each part of your training exercise instantly. Then, once you’re done, your workout and route info is automatically uploaded for friends, training partners and coaches to see (if you let them).
The real piece de resistance? You can set up Team Integration and the program will use the iPhone’s GPS and GeoLocation to see where your fellow riders are and show you where your teammates are on the map!
All of the information is uploaded in realtime, too, so your coach or friends can watch online as you ride and see where you are at any given point. Post ride, the info uploads and you can view it on PedalBrain’s website or share it via Facebook. You can also download it in SRM and WKO+ formats for integration into other workout programs. Pedal Brain is a member of the ANT+ alliance and is fully compatible with ANT+ cycling sensors such as SRM, PowerTap, Quarq, MetriGear & Garmin.
Various screen options will provide access to all the data you need during and after the ride. The same workout data is available for viewing on your phone as online. Thankfully, it uses Google Maps and not a proprietary or MSN / Mapquest map.
PedalBrain is still finalizing the costs and details, but here are the basics. The mount will be available in both Plastic ($130 to $200, actual price TBD) and Carbon Fiber versions (shown, $TBD). The mount is designed to fit over the steerer tube above the stem, and a spacer adapter will be available for those who need extra room either because they’ve topped the tube off or their stem has too much rise. It’s designed to work with iPod Touch, iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. Availability is pegged for early Spring 2010.

That’s right, tonight at 11PM, BIKE TALK! will be making its first appearance on live radio. You can check us out at 90.7 FM, or you can listen live online here. We have a ton of information, live interviews, and interview clips, including stuff from Sky Yaeger – the designer of the Bianchi Pista – and Richard Schwinn – the great-grandson of Ignaz Schwinn, the founder of Schwinn bicycles.
I also heard that Stephen Box from the Bike Writers Collective will be on tonight talking about LA's bike master plan and the Cyclists' Bill of Rights.
From The Do-Over blog:
Friends and family traveled from far and near for our annual post bird day romp aka The Left-Over. If you’ve had the pleasure of attending any of our one-off events, you’ve come to learn that these are some of the most fun Do-Over’s to experience. Well, this year’s Left-Over definitely lived up to those expectations. With each passing season, the bar itself takes on a new life and identity of its own. Attendees were treated to the next phase of Cranes, which included a remodeled outside patio giving it a Brooklyn-esque feel. As for the party itself, it was a nonstop rug cutting affair with $mall Change making his annual pilgrimage from NYC to get down alongside fellow New Yorker JT Donaldson, KCRW’s Jeremy Sole and Rhettmatic featuring Eric Bobo on percussion who had the crowd in a dancing frenzy (Rhett even made a cameo on percussion!).
Save The Date: Friday, January 1st. The New-Over.
If you attended our first ever New Years Day party last year, you know it’s not worth missing. That was probably our craziest party all year and in the history of Do-Over. This year we will top it bigger and bigger.
Whatcha’ Wanna New?

et the collaborative floodgates open in anticipation of Stussy’s 30th anniversary in 2010. Despite the advent of new and arguably better-quality digital camera systems such as Micro 4/3rds, there’s without a doubt a soft spot for many with the fixed lens Ricoh GRD series. The razor quick focus and high-quality black & white photographs are among the GRDIII’s high points making it a great street compact camera. As well, un-like other cameras in its class, the GRDIII’s barrel retracts into its body for a small footprint. In May, Stussy and Ricoh will drop a limited run of 500 cameras as Stussy’s re-design includes the use of blue and other iconic imagery throughout. Stay tuned for more looks into the camera which carries a retail price of ¥99,750 JPY (approximately $1,100 USD). While not every collaboration can follow the same heavyweight status as this Ricoh team-up, we aniticipate some big things for 2010.
