Incredible! I have never seen a Mac application with as much refinements as this. It keeps getting better.

Next feature request: Make me ride my bike faster!

Thanks for the timely updates.

The rapid improvements to Ascent, which at the start was a top-flight program, put other bike logs to shame. Ascent is begnning the challenge MotionBased in the quality of the data analysis. I've used Macs since 1985 and I have never seen more responsiveness, quicker improvement, or better value in any piece of software.
