Pcad is coming around to the need for a powermeter that is less Mickey Mouse than the iBike. I will wait to see what that fancy new futuristic looking power meter is like - that won't be out until December from all accounts. And of course, we need to see how stupidly overpriced THAT piece of bike weenie crap is.
I am also starting to realize that my cycling experience will be more fun if I ride less, rest more, train more intelligently in order to drope larger hamers. I took a rest day last Tuesday. I was flying this weekend (it's all relative, not to get carried away). But I did hang with the Cat 2/3 studs on Nyack on Sunday, the previous week I was shelled on the Scratchup climb (this is the course KP views through his genetically warped Cat-2-of-the-future eyes as 'pancake flat'). God that's fun.
That makes Pcad feel like a bike racer, even though we all realize he is a Pretender. Aren't we all? On the other hand, I am getting into this TT thing, and who knows? My Nyack sessions may get me itching for a little USCF mass-start madness.
Or maybe not. But I digress. How are those Powertaps? I hear complaints about just about everything in cycling. I am leaning towards a set of Zipp 404 clinchers with an SL rear hub. Never let it be said that Pcad didn't Spring for the Major Bike Schwag.
Let the Pcad Power Meter hand-wringing begin.
