Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza".

Power Meter for '19 Giant TCX Advanced

Right now it has a SRAM Apex crankset on there. GXP bottom bracket PF86. It will be used for gravel with CB pedals, prob taken off for CX because what is the point other than messing it up. Mostly trying to see my options between Stages, Quarq and other crank based stuff

Stages (and other arm-based meters) are the easiest solution (and likely cheapest). Companies off the top of my head for meters: Stages, 4iiii, Pioneer, Quarq, Easton

I was going to suggest 4iiii, but they dont support higher tier SRAM, but not the SRAM Apex.
Same goes for Avio powersense- the higher tier SRAM can be fit, but not SRAM Apex.

90% sure the Apex crank arms dont work for these two power meters due to the shape of the crank arm. Does your Apex arm have a concave scoop to it on the inside? Its either that shape, or the actual shape(bends) of the crank arm if the inside is flat. Im guessing it has a concave scoop since both the Avio and 4iiii dont work. The Avio is a few inches long, so it needs a flat and not too significantly angled inside to lie flat. The 4iiii is small though so if it also wont work on Apex, I assume its because the inner arm is scooped.


is this your crank?

I'd be ok getting a new crankset as long as it fit the BB.. and 1x 11. i'm used to BB30 with my other bikes so its a bit tricker to find it seems.

https://www.amazon.com/Quarq-DFour-P...587&th=1&psc=1 perhaps would just need a ring

I can't tell the difference.

Found a good deal on a Race Face ring that was round so i'll stick with that for now. its easy enough to try an oval one if i find one cheap
