Dawson Sports is the official distributer of them here in Australia. The retail price for a 105 crank is $620 compared to $550 at Evans Cycles. A $70 difference is still a bit of coin to make you want to purchase it overseas. 

Let's say if purchased overseas, how do you go about a warranty when they're also being sold here in Australia. Could you go to Dawson Sports for a Warranty claim or does it have to be with whomever you purchased it from?

Yes

that was just the link I used

i wouldn't think a saveing of $7o isn't worth the drama of a warranty espuallyon something as finacky as a PM

cranks and chains etc , never a worry buying OS

for $70 you'd be better off buying it local... The amount of times power meters stuff up isnt worth the hassle of having to send it overseas (they wont do the warranty locally i dont think). 

not sure why you'd want the 4iii when there is some good ones already out there for approx the same $$$

Like What?

there is only really stages in the same price range which is $100 or more dearer

also after 165mm and there aren't too many choices for them amongst the big names unfortunately

Ironpo, I'll agree with you there. There really isn't much available around the $600 price range. I think a Stages 165mm is around $800 from Pushys. Or you can go Powertap Single Sided, which from what I've gathered, have had mixed reviews, plus there's the need to change to a different cleat setup.

Just get a stages DA for the Canyon and be done with it. 

Not sure why you feel the need to change the cranks on the trainer bike as well. It's mostly for improving your position and/or hip angle so on the trainer it doesn't really matter as long as you are getting a few rides in with the other bike outside. 

I challenge you to even notice the difference between the cranks. Perhaps on the first day you may notice it but that will be it.

Gotsome stages coming , as I do %95% of my riding on the trainer then your man says I should have 165s on both bikes 

I can't be shagged changing them over and seeing I can get a 105 crank and a stages for about $600 bucks for the trainer bike then it looks like good value to me :-)
