August 22, 2005 – Giga-Bike Inc. has launched their website at www.giga-bike.com. Giga-Bike is a bicycle training log software that cyclists can install on their PC and log their training details.
Giga-Bike Training Log Software will be revolutionary to cyclists, analogous to the switch from toe-clips to clip-less pedals. “This product is very much in sync with the evolution of many products, such as how the industry left down tube shifters behind for integrated brake/shift controls. Cyclists can throw away their static journal books they have been keeping, for a more dynamic, proficient and time saving way to log their data” ,says President Calvin Straathof.
Giga-Bike overshadows its competition by providing more than 30 features on average than their closest competitors, at a fraction of the cost. Giga-Bike works with any cycle-computer and heart-rate monitor to log rides, record race results, monitor your health, nutrition, strength training & bicycle maintenance, then produce over 50 charts and graphs from your performance.
Giga-Bike Inc. is located in the cycling capital of Canada, and has formed a collection of impressive members on its team, including former National Team Coach Steve Lund who has created a dozen training programs for Giga-Bike to help cyclists get started. Jon Watkin, B.Com. acts as General Manager and comes from a decade of experience managing bicycle retail stores and pro-am cycling teams. Jon has been director of the Times Colonist Cycling Festival in 2003 and 2004, and is on the board of directors for the Pacific Sport National Cycling Center.
