Tern Social Ride 2014

Despite the rain and cold, a number of brave souls still showed up for the 2nd Annual Taipei Cycle Show Tern Social Ride on March 6. Sporting ponchos and new Argus cycle safety lights, we set out in the evening along one of Taipei's riverside bike paths. Super enthusiastic people, great conversation and some tasty food at the end, made it all worth the while. Check out the video for highlights of the ride.

Bike Mount for iPhone 5 is now shipping!

We’ve got big news for gift givers – two new products have launched!

It’s FINALLY here – the product many a BioLogic fan has been clamoring for. The Bike Mount for iPhone 5 is now available!! Much like our previous generations of Bike Mounts, this will keep your newest gadget dry and protected from weather, dust and grime, safely attached to your handlebars. We use the same RidgeSeal case design but have remodeled this version with a top hinge with two side snap closures which allow for an even more solid close. With the touch-sensitive front membrane and clear back panel, you have access to your iPhone’s applications and rear camera for pictures or videos while you ride. The Bike Mount for iPhone 5 fits on handlebars or stems with a diameter of 38 mm (1.5”) or smaller and ships with a 6 mm hex key for mounting the bracket. Download our top-rated cycling app, BikeBrain, and you’re ready for adventure!

In addition to the new Bike Mount case, we also released the Soft Shield for iPad, a protective waterproof cover for your on-the-go gadget. The Soft Shield for iPad is crafted from a waterproof, sonically-welded fabric to meet rigorous IP66 water and particle protection standards. The dark grey linen-like fabric perfectly matches the underlying texture of iOS, Dark Linen, and is a non-slip material, making the iPad easier to handle even with gloves on. With the Soft Shield on, iPad features are fully accessible, including the front touchscreen, rear camera, volume controls, and on/off button. The Soft Shield also includes a TRRS in-line earphone adapter, so users are able to listen to and control their iPad through earphones equipped with in-line remotes.

We’re quite excited about these new products to keep your electronics safe and protected, on and off your bike. Find out more about the Bike Mount for iPhone 5 right here and more about the Soft Shield for iPad right here.

Bash for Bikes

Last month, BioLogic was a sponsor of “Bash for Bikes,” an event put on by World Bicycle Relief to send contributions to their Bicycle for Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP) in Zambia. Through the donations collected at the recent event, World Bicycle Relief was able to send 152 bicycles to Zambia and also provide training for 3 additional mechanics! Being able to provide mechanic training is vital to the communities as it gives back precious time to the students to ensure they have more productive hours in the day for studying and assisting their families with chores and work while also ensuring they are better rested and more prepared to learn at school.

BioLogic also contributed all sales of the Bike Mount for iPhone 4 during the Taipei Cycle Show to the BEEP program. Take a look at the details of the August event here and find out more about the efforts of World Bicycle Relief here.

We’re incredibly proud to play a part in helping such a great organization. A big thank you to all sponsors for their contributions!

Happy Riding,

We’re incredibly excited to announce that an upgrade to our free BikeBrain iPhone cycling app is now available! BikeBrain 2.1 combines all the great features from the previous version while providing users with the option of three new modules.

BikeBrain now features a new simple button that allows users to open the iPhone camera directly in the App. Once taken, a reference to each geo-tagged photo is plotted on the map as a record of where you were when you took it. The best photos can then be selected and shared to Google Maps and your Facebook feed with the same simple, one-button sharing.

These sharing functions are available in the Social Sharing Module, one of three separate upgrade modules that allow users to only pay for additional content that they need. Data-geeks will also be able to monitor their pace, altitude and calories used through the Data Enhancement feature, while hard core cyclists can store an unlimited amount of highly customized training profiles in the Training module. German speakers now have free access to the localized German version.

In addition to the latest app release, all users will now be able to create a profile and access user manuals on the newly launched www.BikeBrain.net. The website is designed to create a community for BikeBrain users to share information related to their BikeBrain experience through forum discussions and user-generated content.

Users who have previously upgraded to BikeBrain Plus will receive the three upgrade modules for free, but new users can purchase each app upgrade for $0.99 or buy all three at a discount for $1.99. The newest version of BikeBrain will be available for download now through the App Store here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id424193629.

Happy Riding!

BikeBrain App Facebook sharing issues

Facebook decided that our App Developer Account was registered improperly. As a result, they unexpectedly closed our BikeBrain account on June 27th. We have contacted Facebook to reactivate the App Developer Account, but have yet to hear a response from them. We have applied and received a new generated app ID and have submitted to Apple as a new version, which requires roughly another 5 working days for approval. Once we receive this approval, you will be able to download the new version from the App Store. Users will need to re-login to Facebook through their BikeBrain accounts and then will regain access to Facebook posting. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to correct the situation as quickly as possible. To receive notification when in App posting to Facebook will be available, please send us an email at service@thinkbiologic.com and we’ll send you an email as soon as it’s online.

Thank you for your patiene,
The BikeBrain Team
