    Guess that means my wife's score of a year old wireless SRAM S975 SRM for $1500 was pretty good then...

    well, someone's selling the following on wattage/mabra forum:
    Rotor 3D+ SRM 110 BCD with 52/36 Sram Red Black Rings. Has about 8 months of use. Works great. 172.5mm arms. Few light scrapes on the right side bottom of crank arm from missing clip ins.

    $1300 for the SRM
    $500 for the black PC7 that goes with it.


    Buy both for $1600. Prefer CONUS unless the shipping ain't pricey.
    donno why he's selling it for that cheap though

    one can update the stored slope in an srm by using a garmin. the pc7 will then use the new value when set to 'auto'. very nice. slope does change over time. i highly recommend (to anyone who cares about long-term data) checking slope periodically. it's fast (~5 minutes); i do it every 3-6 months as i have a bunch of meters and want to keep them all in line...it also helps to spot issues before they become problems.

    Not mine. I'm just trying to pass on a good deal.

    Teton is correct in mentioning that it's a good idea to periodically check the meter's slope. I will say that once they "bed in" from new, they hardly seem to move. I track my test results and the one unit that I use a lot has been at 31.2 for several years.

    agreed. i do think it is important, though, even if the changes are small; many of us work all winter for very small gains, so to have that get lost due to a meter that is not calibrated would be unfortunate.

    i think he was referring to that $1300 rotor 3d+ ANT+ srm

    shiiiiiiet, i can buy that, swap out the cranks of my desired length and sell my current SRM and still make a profit

    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.
