ACT - Quarq Riken power meter (Compact 50/34, 175mm)

Postby auskonrad » Wed Jan 01, 2014 9:48 am

Item: Quarq Riken power meter - compact chainrings (110bcd), 175mm crank arm length. Product info: http://www.quarq.com/quarq-riken-10r

Price: $1100

Postage Available: Yes, by negotiation - only by registered, insured post. Also available if you're around Canberra, I'm available for you to come by and take a look.

Details: Bought and installed on my bike in September, it's had some solid use for 4+ months (well into second battery). Condition is obviously a bit used, but it is in perfect working order, doesn't skip a beat and the chain rings are good (chain rings are those that come on the old SRAM red cranksets).

This is the new improved range of Quarqs where you don't have to send them away to get configured when you do things like change the chainrings, and you can put almost any chainrings on them. Battery replacement is made simple - and the magnet sensor is also simple, as it will come with all the different fittings for the different ways to mount it (epoxy, bb cup mount, bottom cable guide mount).

Reason for selling? Changing a few things up on my bike and letting this go. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Can provide close up shots of any aspect of the crankset - as required.

Power training isn't just for the pros now - with the right training methods, training with power is super easy and yields huge returns! Take things to the next step!

PM me for further details, discussions!

GAH Just found out our solar panel inverter packed it in, can't possibly consider this right now until I've seen the phat bill :(

Free bump. Apologies to auskonrad.

Can this be made to fit a bb90? Can't post PMs (too much a noob) so grateful if you could contact me. Based in Canberra.

Cheers
Steve

Assuming you have a Trek Madone with BB90 bottom bracket, yes, it's possible, just need the right bottom bracket. I'd go speak with the local Trek store about specifics (theyd probably charge you 50ish bucks for the part and then a few bucks to fit maybe?) .

But essentially.. you'd end up with something like this: http://www.mymountain.com.au/p/5605850/ ... m-gxp.html

The quarq is essentially just a SRAM Red Crankset (GXP).

LOL I feel guilty... here to help.

Steve, the BB90 needs a new GXP specific BB that you can get from your LBS, should be bought and installed for around 50-60 bucks? If you currently have a Shimano crank, you will need the new BB. If you have a SRAM (Force/Red for example) crank on your bike already, then it's a straight swap.

No adaptors required, just get it swapped. Not too pricey at all really. I found Shimano BB power meters to be a little pricey and hard to find; GXP/SRAM variants are actually much much easier to find, so if you wanted to upgrade later, you could probably keep the BB and just swap for another Quarq or even SRM.

Thanks for all the info. Would really love to dive in, but starting to think it might get too complicated to work into my current setup (DA9000). (11sp vs 10sp: flexibility to switch between compact and standard chainrings on the DA).

dont hesitate to do the swap.

I run a Power2Max with SRAM GXP cranks on a Dura Ace set up (7900) and have set up two Quarks on 9000 (mechanical) with out any any problems. On one we ran the standard 10 speed SRAM rings and the other was with Stronglight 11 speed rings. In both cases the shifting is fine and to be honest haveing had a look at both rings I can see little difference in the teeth or pick ups.

bump and price drop - $900 (plus postage)

Some updates - fresh battery, all up around 4000km travel on it. Still works extremely well. The 10sp chainrings still have plenty of life in them and they work flawlessly with 11sp chains.

Also some more up-to-date photos:

Damn. If only it was 172.5mm. Not sure my legs are quite lanky enough for a 175mm
