How much are they charging for freight? Should be under the $1,000 Aud so won't thought duty would be payable.

700us plus freight. Will be over 1k aus unfortunately

I just ordered the new FSA power crank. It's simply a power2max power meter integrated with a fsa crank. $800 new seems like good value. 

DC rainmaker hasn't reviewed it yet but others have and feedback is initially good. I'm hoping it arrives this week and have it up and running next week.

 

Unsure if it will a fit a shiv though.

 

Where did you order it from?

The P1 pedals seem to get the thumbs up from lots- apparently as 'set and forget' as anything, and run on AA batteries.

I have a set of (secondhand) garmin pedals on my roadie that so far haven't had a hiccup- but only a handful of rides too. 

My new Giant TT has a set of the FSA/P2Max cranks on it. Not enough time on them to really comment so far- and only indoors (that said, powermatch on trainerroad sucks). Certainly very straightforward though. 

Interested to hear your experiences. I've got the same one coming in the post at the moment.

Can't wait to hear what you think mate. I am keen to order a set for my roadie, but the rubber battery cover has me concerned for wet weather 

From other reviews on it, it doesn't seem like its a big issue. How often would you be riding in the wet anyway?

Merlin Cycles in the UK. I got the alloy crank - its a fair bit cheaper than the carbon one. Not the greatest looking crank, but will do the trick for me in the short term. You can also get it slightly cheaper depending on crank length in other online shops. 

Road.cc had this to say about it: http://road.cc/content/review/223476-fsa-powerbox-alloy-chainset

Roadie is my commuter, so quite often

Ghetto probably will get a lot more miles on his....

My unit is the 'basic' P2Max on an alloy Gossamer crankset, through Ribble. The boys at the bike shop sourced me a BB to fit it into a Giant pressfit shell. They are BB386EVO axle only (I guess this helps to keep cost down- less options)

So far my experience has been good. It wakes up with a few turns of the crank. My computer picks it up.No dropouts  that I can see. The offset number it's been giving is fairly stable. 

That said it's really only had a few hours of riding.

Worth noting that the instructions say to remove the battery while transporting the bike. as the crank will be activated by the movement. You'll arrive with a potentially dead battery depending on the length of the trip.

Where did you get it from and what sort of $$?

Direct from p2max, who were very helpful & responded quickly to my questions. Think it was around $1k.
