a teammate of mine had an iBike at training camp. His peak 5s wattage came out to 3000 watts.

What is it with pro teams using Rival cranks now? I saw them on Bissell's Pinarellos with the Red rings, and now on these?

Yeah, the roster in reality does include some pretty strong guys. Dulin, Beamer, etc... they can make me hurt, for sure.

(pure speculation)

If you crash, there's no need to worry about the crankarms being damaged unless they're literally broken off; just hop on and go and trust that they're okay. Same reason that the pros use alloy handlebars and stems. I also wouldn't be surprised if much of the weight savings between Rival and Red is in the rings, so using a Rival arms/Red rings combo would provide the benefits of an alloy arm without much weight penalty.

Regarding the iBike:

During lunch we got the inside scoop on iBike from founder John Hamann. Apparently, they are working on an ANT+ Sport compatible version which could pick up power data from a device like…the Quarq Cinqo! Why would you want one power meter to be able to get data from another? The iBike measures incline, acceleration and gradient (via inclinometer, not barometer) and back-calculates power output. It also tells you Crr (rolling resistance) and CdA (drag). So, if a rider can pair it with a power meter that measures hard data, that rider can have the sort of position and equipment data only an expensive wind tunnel session could otherwise provide. This is revolutionary. I’m looking forwards to my Marin Camp to see what improvements are made in the next couple of weeks.

Some of the taller guys needed Rival cranks since they didn't make Red cranks in 180.

"And with the innovative Dynastream ANT _ Sport wireless technology, you get reliable and secure data transmission and the ability for the iBike to communicate with other ANT devices."

The ANT+Sport comm protocol has already been implemented making iBike wireless.

Just a day or so ago, Velocomp announced that with a firmware upgrade the iBike will pair with the Garmin 705 and 705 speed and cadence sensors, as well as the Garmin 705's heart rate chest strap. Apparently, the ability to pair with a Quarq Cinqo is next.

^So I can spend as much a powertap, have about the same weight, and have a device that only estimates power output?

But I guess I get a neat little map.
