"We could tell you, but then we would need to kill you."
Well, not quite.
According to Velocity Nation
:iBike skipped the show floor for a private suite, where you had to sign a non disclosure agreement to see their newest innovation. It's due out in March 2010, and it has the potential to be a real game changer.
Okay. I wasn't at Interbike (shoulda gone, shoulda gone...) but I'll take a guess. Time for a hardware upgrade. The iBike has a design inspired by iPod. iPod is yesterday's paradigm; today's paradigm is the iPhone. So I'll guess they have something with a more updated display. Maybe even integrated with an iPhone itself? Who knows. I'm just guessing.
There's a new power meter on the horizon: the Metrigear Vector
, which is installed in Speedplay pedals. It'll be interesting to see how it integrates with the iBike. It will provide more info than other meters currently on the market, including L-R pedal balance and likely force data related to the foot applying moments to the pedal other than those yielding propulsive power. It would take a configurable head unit to be able to display these new data. So perhaps the new iBike will be more configurable.
