Take the Guess Work Out of Bike Maintenance with Ikeono

by Khem Suthiwan

From Tribella’s very own Brett Lang and IOs developer Dru Lang, comes Ikeono , the check engine light for your bike.

As manager of the Tribella Sports Group , Brett spends his days interpreting people’s qualitative description to what is effectively a quantitative problem. In his experience, people do not willfully neglect their bike, it is simply a lack of knowledge and awareness. With this realization, Brett and his brother came up with the idea of Ikeono, the check engine light for your bike.

Ikeono takes Strava ride data and attributes mileage to each of your components, sending notifications when service might need to be completed.  The service intervals are all based on industry standards, however are fully customizable for those with a better handle on their individual needs. With flexible notification settings, you can either sit back and utilize their Automatic Component Notification System™, or take full control and create custom notification intervals.

While the initial goal was to expand knowledge regarding bike maintenance, they realized there was another void which needed to be filled.  Phase two of Ikeono will allow you to schedule bike maintenance through your local shop, track the status of your bike as it is being worked on, and know exactly when it is finished.

Current Features:
– Seamless integration with Strava to track mileage on core component groups.
– Default service intervals, and notification when components might be due for service.
– Ability to track multiple bikes and wheel sets.
– Detailed maintenance record.

Features Coming Soon:
– Ability to schedule maintenance via the app.
– Real time updates as your bike is being serviced.
– Integration with tracking platforms Garmin, TrainingPeaks, and Wahoo

As competitive triathletes and avid cyclists with busy schedules, we demand a lot from our bikes, and with Ikeono, you can rest assured that you will extend the life of your bike, prevent breakdowns, and stay at the top of your game.

Holiday Gift Guide: Footbeat, A New Way to Recover

by Alison Freeman

 

If you’re like most of us – getting older but convinced you can get faster and beat the pants off your younger self – then you know how important recovery is to your training. Meet Footbeat: a pair of moccasins that house an insole that houses a little engine-driven bubble, which compresses your arch which then increases circulation and therefore removes metabolic waste – including lactate, which is also known as: the reason your legs feel like crap. Tiny little engine, big freakin’ deal.

 

The best part about Footbeat is how darn convenient the moccasins are to use. Finish up a run or a bike, shower (optional), and pop those things on while you eat a recovery meal, answer emails, do a little work, or analyze the data file from your workout. Plus they’re easy to tuck into a backpack and bring on a plane or long road trips – keep your legs fresh while you’re sitting for hours, and ensure your legs are ready the next day for a major bike ride or the big race of the season.
