iPhone + ANT+ == Bike Nerd Convergence Nirvana?

I’ve heard this conversation at least 10 times:

Roadie Tech Type #1: “Hey – what if they made the iPhone a Power Meter head unit?”

Roadie Tech Type #2: “Never happen – iPhone will never support ANT+”

Roadie Tech Type #1: “But that would be awesome if it did”.

That may be true, but it looks like Pedal Brain maybe ready to span that gap with their iPhone mount that includes ANT+ comm support.

It’s still very early as they just launched their public site last week, but it sounds promising. Does this mean no need to lug around a Windows machine any more to upload and analyze your data? We’ll stay on this and hopefully get a chance to test it out and see how the software suite works together. I doubt I’ll ever want to race with an iPod sticking out from my handlebars, but it sure seems great for training.
