PORTLAND, Ore. – Sept. 25, 2015 – OTTO DesignWorks will exhibit a new iPhone-guided bike maintenance system for cyclists that delivers precise shifting in as little as 60 seconds was presented at the 33rd Annual Interbike Expo in Las Vegas this month.
The OTTO Tuning System uses the iPhone’s camera and a set of precision-engineered gauges to check shifting alignment, and provides verbal prompts that lead users through any needed adjustments. The OTTO App offers progressive levels of functionality with both CHECK and TUNE options, as well as a multiple bike profile feature. Simple enough for the weekend cyclist or bike racer to use, yet robust enough to earn a spot on the mechanic’s workbench, it’s ideal for pre-ride/pre-race shifting confirmation, after wheel changes, or for regular maintenance.

Bicycle.net was very impressed with the ease of use and the accuracy of the tuning system. Stay tuned for a full product review in the next 30 days.
