Anyone fit a stages PM to a 2023 Cube Litening?

So I'm living overseas and the nearest bike shop is 1.5hrs away so i can't just pop in and chat, plus there is a language barrier even though google translate gets the point across. So i am asking the cycling community if anyone has experience fitting a left side crank stages power meter to a 2023 Cube litening race? The shop is saying it won't fit, but I'm looking for confirmation because stages says it will but there is always a chance there is a clearance issue. The bike is on order and they don't have any other of these models in the shop to do the allen wrench test, and I really don't want to use power pedals or the full shimano powermeter setup.

Cranks of new bike:
Shimano Ultegra FC-R8100, Hollowtech II, 50x34T

Sorry I can't post URLS yet.

If you buy the Stages left side crank for Ultegra, it's a 5 minute swap.


I did not process the clearance issue, sorry. Measuring will give the best answer.

Does Stages website give you any information on how much clearance is needed? If so you could cut a strip of cardboard or something to that dimension and check easily enough if there'll be clearance. Never mind, you knew about the allen key test.

Stages might also know for themselves if you ask them. They've probably had other customers with that bike.

I never used Stages, but 4iiii support has been responsive enough to my questions I ask them. Sometimes it takes a few days though. So maybe Stages support will be at least the same answering emails.

I purchased a Stages left side. Works great, but I wanted dual.
I purchased the Stages right side. Works great.

Got another bike and went with Garmin Rally dual pedals.

Far more data, much easier to move from bike to bike.
I won’t go back to a crank based power meter again.

Sorry if you find this off topic, but I thought you might find it relevant given I own both.
If you need measurements from my Stages do let me know.
