    New (to me) PowerTap

    So I won and just received a 2006 Powertap Pro (Yellow hub)from ebay. I am really excited to start using power to train. The main reason I went with the Pro over the Standard model is that I can use my race wheels with a magnet during races and still use the PT head unit/cable as a normal computer. I am trying to test this out but I am not getting any reading on the head unit when I have my non-PT wheel installed. Can anyone offer me any help? Thanks.

    Sorry, I meant for this to be in the Road Cycling Forum. I guess I am going to cross-post it.

    click through until cadence is showing on the lower screen. then hold the select button until "watts" disappears. now you are in non-PThub mode.

    THat's a cool trick! I kept going into the setup window to put it in "cyclocomputer" mode, never knew about this. It's so much easier! Thanks!

    What is the fee for Saris to do a rebuild of a hub? Are there different levels of service they provide?

    ^^^
    I'd call the customer service number from the web page. They're pretty helpful.

    My question to you, is have you considered racing with the PT.There's a slight weight penalty. But racing will be your best data.

    I go back and forth on this myself, and end up using lighter wheels mostly just on very hilly courses.
