The Wheelbuilder designed Track PowerTap is now available for sale. The same engineer who designed the Saris CycleOps MTB PowerTap designed this conversion for fixed gear racing and training. Wheelbuilder’s Track hub provides reliable wireless power data with CycleOps’ +/- 1.5% PowerTap accuracy.
“…given that on the track the difference between winning and losing is often extremely small, it can be argued that track cyclists may benefit from use of a powermeter to an even greater extent than road (or off-road) cyclists.”
- Andrew Coggan, Ph.D.
The Track PowerTap has a 17mm axle and is designed for use with White Industries’ splined cogs, available in 1/8" or 3/32" widths with 14-19T. Splined cogs are available at a discount when purchased with a new Track PowerTap or Track PowerTap conversion. The hub attaches to dropouts via high strength 8mm socket head cap screw axle bolts.
All Track PowerTap hubs are available as a complete system or as “hub-only.” PowerTap systems include all CycleOps electronic accessories: yellow CPU receiver, coded HR monitor and USB data download cradle. Hub-only systems do not include CycleOps electronic accessories for the benefit of riders who already own a wireless PowerTap system. These athletes can use the same electronic accessories with multiple PowerTap hubs.
Wheelbuilder offers new Track PowerTap hubs, or we can convert your current hub. The track conversion is available for all wireless versions of the PowerTap and is a permanent alteration. The Track hub has the same warranty as all other PowerTap products and a track conversion does not void your existing warranty.

Due to the level of attention that goes into every wheel, Wheelbuilder's wheels will outperform every other hand built wheel. Each wheel's tension is balanced for optimal performance, giving you the strongest wheel possible. Perfection matters to me and that's why I recommend Wheelbuilder wheels.

Looks pretty nice. I've wanted to have power on a track bike for a while. Not many can afford an SRM and if they do they usually pick the road bike for it.
