From power meters to Zwift, and heart rate monitors to Strava, technology, apps, and software have become ubiquitous in cycling. Fred and his co-host, Steve Frothingham of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, interview Stacy Perlis of Wahoo Fitness and Russ Johnston of Pioneer, two companies that are at the forefront of integrating bicycles and technology. In addition to discussing the current landscape and market trends, the group talks about how retailers can take a key role in the trend toward connectivity.
