The LiveRider iPhone Bike Kit ($99) by New Potatoe Technologies is a great way to to log your bike rides. While anyone can get a iPhone app for bikes, the LiveRider kit boasts the complete package including a shockproof iPhone mount, wireless sensor for easy hook up/ no loose wires, and a cool custom app for displaying all your data in real time. The system includes a magnetic sensor that measures speed and pedal cadence and beams it to your iPhone or iPod that you place near the back wheel. Also cool, is how the Liverider includes GPS so you know where you're going and uses the accelerometer to measure inclination. And if you're trying to train or better your previous time, the Chase Rider mode lets you compete against your best times.
