Allen Sports announced a new GPS-cellphone navigation system at Interbike this week that’s a bit perplexing.

Tag Wheels: Mags are back

I talked with a rep from Tag Wheels about their new composite wheel system. The wheels are unbreakable (so far) and they seem like a good choice for downhill riders, jumpers, and extra large clydesdales.

High-end Helmet Cam: V.I.O. POV.1

If you’re looking for a pro-sumer level mountain bike helmet cam you might want to check out the V.I.O. POV.1. It’s an integrated video capture system capable of recording 720×480 resolution at 30fps. If you don’t know what this means, suffice it to say it’s good, better than television quality. The system is comprised of …

I listened in on a demo of the Edge 705 from Garmin this afternoon and there were a few features I hadn’t heard or read about before. The Edge 705 incorporates ANT technology, a wireless protocol developed by Garmin for communication with other devices like cadence sensors, heart rate monitors, etc. The cool thing is …
