Oh I know I want it :lol: ... but no holding strong.
I also want a TT frame, disc rear, new road groupset and two sets of race wheels ... been swapping things round too much and everything is getting worn out!.

Can we just change the name of this thread to "Spam toolonglegs with cheap power meter options"?

I've been tossing this up for a while too. Bit of background:

2 road bikes,

Race bike has BB30, generally only ride this for races, occasionaly use it as a treat on quicker group rides

Training bike is 24mm outboard bearings (Shimano 105), ride this all the time. Love having a training bike that I don't mind taking out whatever the weather is doing!

Was thinking of getting a Quarq (through Alex), couldn't decide which bike to get it for.

Ended up looking into powertap prices. I'd enquired a year ago, and prices were up over $2000 locally, but nearly went for a comp model off wiggle. Would have been approx. $750 for the wheel (discount code at the time).

I've looked again, decided the G3 powertap is the way to go. Prices around $1400 for wheel online. Asked at my LBS, got quoted a price of $1299 for the G3 wheel! SOLD!
