System Six comes with a power meter?

I love the bike, but I'm a little surprised that they've packaged it with a power meter. It would seem that the market for these bikes is probably primarily made up of people who already have power meters, and likely more than one. It seems like that will probably be a pretty quick take-off for most people. I'd love to see it as an option, but not a requirement. Anyone know if this is an indication of where things might be headed?

I read that it comes with power meter, but you have to pay extra to have it activated. Wonderful model for future bikes!!

The high end ($7000 +) come with a Power2Max that does need to be activated. The lower end ones do not.

I cannot understand this 'addition' at all. As mentioned, many who buy these jiggers will already have PMs and having to pay extra to activate is a nonsense.

cheers

It makes more sense than including disc brakes on a racing bike.

Goes to show how much strain gauges cost (nothing).

It's only a matter of time before all cranksets 105 level or above come standard with strain gauges on both arms.
