    QuarQ PM L/R Balance

    I know a couple people here use the QuarQ powermeter. I got one recently and have done a few rides on it. I've noticed a L/R power balance issue were my left side shows 54% while the right shows 46%. I've know for some time that I have a leg length discrepancy, used to shim the right cleat but lately have not. No fitter, from Andy Pruitt to my local Specialized dealer have been able to correct the problem, femur length issues are difficult to adjust for. I guess my question is, for those that use the QuarQ, do you show a power imbalance L/R? If so how much?

    BTW, I've read how the QuarQ registers L/R power with the 0-180 semi-circle assigned to one side and the 180-360 to the other. While not as ideal as the pedal based powermeters, I'd like to see the balance a bit closer than what has been reported.

    I don't use a power meter, but I'm thinking that you might get a larger sampling if you repost this over in the Road forum.

    Without any data at all, I've long wondered if I apply any where near equal power with each leg, and I don't have any asymmetry issues (to my knowledge)
