Power meter for shiv

Recommended Posts

RunBrettRun    1,362

Yeah this topic again.

 

My quarq has officially died.

 

Out of warranty and the option from quarq for a replacement unit is 700us plus freight plus duty.  

 

Does anyone have any experience with pioneer?  I'd prefer to buy new but might have an option for a second hand unit at about 750.  

 

Any other options for a shiv?  I liked the look of the powertap crank based one but it won't fit a shiv as per their website.

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.

I have the Powertap P1 pedals on my Shiv, and swap them to the road bike for the wet season (NQ). Will probably also swap them to the MTB for endurance training (but not riding trails).

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.

Oh, the advantage of P1 pedals over Garmin is they don't have a specific torque requirement when installing to read correctly, and there is no pod.

I'm a big fan of second hand stuff but would be very hesitant to go that way with a powermeter. I've used Quarq and am now on stages and the dual vs one sided stuff never made any difference to me.

So I was about to purchase a Quarq power meter for the P5 - are they any good? Or is there a better option?

I'm looking for a quality PM, so I'm happy to spend as needed. Thanks.

Yep.

I bought a second hand wireless SRM Dura Ace 7800 for $500 a couple of years ago and it has worked flawlessly.

Despite the fact that it's a dated model, I'm much more confident in the accuracy and consistency of the numbers my SRM gives me than the previous PM I owned.

Yep had an SRM on my P5 and worked absolutely fine.  I know you replace the battery yourself but I send mine off which was a pain when it was NZ but it's now Adelaide so should be a lot easier timewise.

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

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
