Last Thursday (9/18) was the first, in a series of two goldsprint competitions sponsored by PUMA and Vice. The I-Cycle Space at Vice Gallery was the battle grounds for the first I-Cycle Throwdown that brought together a mix of industry leaders, brands and bike messengers in a head-to-head stationary bike race. The night featured a diverse mix of teams, ranging from Complex Magazine, Staple Design, Fader Magazine, D.A.R.T (Mishka NYC), CycleHawk. The night was full of intense competition, as teams looked to post their best times and qualify for this Friday’s finals.

Some tech savvy cyclist came up with a fixed gear calculator that can be downloaded as an iPhone or iPod Touch application via the iPhone App Store. The fixed gear calculator is capable of calculating gear ratios, gain ratios, gear inches, and development – to list a few. The calculator is only offered in English at the moment and requires at least 1MB of disk space on an iPhone running 2.0 software or an iPod Touch. Check out more details here.
