Using your iPhone for Bicycle fitting

image

This is kinda neat.  I did not try ‘TestRides‘ (by Wildlab) myself, but I like the idea.   Basically, you take a picture of yourself, select key body points to provide an overall measurement set, and then calculate and display the best bike size for your body.  Sweet!  For people who do not do a lot of biking, having the wrong size bicycle is the difference between have a pleasant long ride and one wishing it would end. The app just came out, and looks a bit early in dev, but if you have never been fitted for a bike before, I think it's worth the $5 to find out.  Who knows?

I turn to the Lose It app to help me monitor my diet and track my workouts. All you have to do is enter the foods you’re eating and your physical activity and Lose It will tell you if you are within your daily caloric budget. Yet another great reason to use an iPhone!
