    Power Tap?

    I just Inherited a Power Tap complete with software and interface link. Just wondering what anyone's experiences have been while training with it?

    the price has dropped down to US$699 for the hub and the Link download software as opposed to US$770 plus US$200 for the Link kit as previously listed. There will also be a pro model released early in the new year.
    This from cyclingnews Sunday.

    Cheers...Gary

    I had a Powertap but it was one of the early grey ones & it did not last long in Belgium. The software is not very good so I used SRM software with it (wrote a little excel macro to convert the files).I now own a polar Power meter & thats fallen to bits & let water into the electrics also but at least this time I could fix it myself.

    There is some things related to training with Power on my site here.

    Not really, The complete Power Tap system I received was free! (That is the 'actual' Power Tap unit I have that you see pictured in the link above in a previous post, along with the 'actual' Lemond bike I have listed for sale in the buy-sell-trade forum).
