do you guys think it's safe to install while there's still some pink, or should I let it cook for a few more minutes?



Actually, I was sort of curious if anyone had gotten their hands on one yet. Strikes me as clever, but probably not accurate.

any computer that comes with a Power Meater is a must buy in my opinion. i always see guys with legs of ham out on rides and have no way to slice them up for their sandwich.

My CS400 doesn't have the power meater...I feel slighted.

I've just installed mine on Sunday.

Seems much better than the unit that came with my 725X, which seems to have a knackered sensor. I'm due to send that back.

Two observations
1) Make sure you have the sensor extremely close to the chain, I did a few laps thinking I had another duff unit, jacked up the main unit towards the chain and all was well.
2) It has a really cheap and nasty battery holder, I had to bend the contacts on the battery holder so they touched the pins, it really is a total POS.

Apart from that readings seem quite high when I'm pulling away from things, like 500+ watts but the average when I'm in the saddle seems right so I guess there is your plus/minus 10%

Nice to see my pedal balance is pretty darn good ATM, but Peddeling index is pretty poor (a mere 18%).

it's been at 679 for a long time now, so i'm not sure the price will be coming down anytime soon.
