The iBike

Wired reveals that Apple has filed a patent for a smart-bike:
[Apple] has imagined a smart bicycle system that would let users communicate electronically with other cyclists, sharing such data as speed, distance, time, altitude, elevation, incline, decline, heart rate, power, derailleur setting, cadence, wind speed, path completed, expected future path, heart rate, power, and pace.
In a year which has already seen the release of the iPad and iPhone 4 Steve Jobs said that there are amazing new products still to come. As a weekend cyclist and Apple stockholder I'm glad to see they're not resting on their laurels, but I'm not buying the iBike unless the seat's comfortable.
