Cycling computers, said Velocomp CEO John Harmon "have always been about numbers. "How far, how fast, what's my heart rate," (scroll down to listen to podcast). He said that iBike comes with "exercise plans that have been proven to get to results fast." He said the software has options depending on why you ride a bicycle. "What we've done is design our product, which is a complete system--electronics, a mount and an app--and you pick the benefits." Options include weight loss, cardiovascular fitness and a "weekend warrior' option for people who only ride occasionally. There is also a "Brazilian butt" program to help shape that part of your anatomy."
