Is there some clever way to integrate the ipod nike+ thingy (for running) for use on a bike? i googled and couldnt find anything.
first off, i was more thinking about a specific cyclometer/sensor at the wheel that interfaced with the wireless sensor that comes with nike +. I had this in mind to train for triathlons.meloh1 said:No and the concept wouldn't work with a geared bike. Maybe with a single speed but not without modification. It works on a fixed stride length and the strike force generated by your foot coming down on the ground. You might be able to calibrate it for a specific gear ratio, like on a single speed, but it won't work with multiple gear ratios. Secondly, the force required to send the signal is likely more than you would generate with a pedal downstroke.
ahh! i wish i had known about that before i bought the nike thing! $30 vs $150... it's more expensive, but so versatile. it's actually pretty cheap for what it is.mtb_biker said:
