As Interbike 2012 draws to a close, it's easy for many attendees to run out of steam, exhibitors and journalists alike. After a full week of coverage, a lot of folks are plain tired. But we've saved some great tidbits for last, so we can go out with a bang. There was a lot of great stuff in days 1 and 2, but I truly there are some gems left in here, and I hope you get as much out of viewing the gallery as much as I did shooting it. This is it for Interbike. We're going to close the books on this one, then regroup and see you in just TWO WEEKS for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Come back then for all the coverage from the island. But for now, here's our final gallery from Interbike 2012. Enjoy!
Okay, another REALLY cool product that's finally come to fruition: this is the Kurt Kinetic inRide. Have a look at the PowerUp series that we wrote, and specifically part 5. We showcased a cheap little computer that Kirk makes, that lets you read a virtual power measurement based on the speed of your rear wheel. The new inRide system is a much more sophisticated version of that. Instead of using wheel speed, it uses the actual speed of the trainer. Moreover, it knows when you've stopped pedaling, and won't show a power reading if you're merely coasting. It doesn't require you to install ANYTHING on your bike, and affixes entirely onto the back of the trainer. And even better, it speaks Bluetooth, and so it'll talk directly to your iPhone, and more specifically any fitness app you happen to be using, like the really great app Wahoo has developed (which is FREE, by the way).
