pretty straight forward, would be better than texts etc. and make group rides more realistic.
Even better: add the functionality to the apps so you can use speakerphone and not be tethered to the computer via USB.
Yes, especially the speakerphone suggestion.
Personally, my keyboard is too far away, and I found messing with my phone distracting. So currently I don’t do any of the texts, signals, etc. Would be nice to have a skype like option.
I’ll hop on this train as well. It won’t truly be group riding until you can normally converse with riders around you. Headsets would suck, but would do the job if necessary. Speaker phone, if possible, would be 100x better.
This is a terrible idea. I don’t want to hear a load of random people talking in a random language and grunting going up hills.
