Power Meter Solution for 2 Road Bikes?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

that's some weird internet timing, but a cool sounding product

That is an interesting option. About $100 more than their full pedals with single sided metering, and ~$100 less than their dual sided. If you like your pedal bodies, or you want dual sided but can't quite afford that option otherwise, this could be a nice solution.

Been thinking about these for a while... they seem like a good idea for switching between multiple bikes.... especially when 1 of my bikes uses flat pedals...

That's a lot to pay for estimated power. Strava does it for free.

not real-time while you're riding, which is where you'll get the most benefit from having a power meter. Plus, the Strava estimates, while good, are much less accurate than a power meter and can't account for many things like wind

No love for PowerPods? DCRainmaker says "it can be solidly accurate", it's cheap and easily swappable between bikes. Maybe not good enough for serious training but if you're just curious about your in-flight power then it should do the trick. I'm happy with mine, but I just use it as a reminder not to get lazy.

Just be aware that it's only some models of SPD-SLs. Won't work with R9x00s, for example.

"Assioma DUO-Shi is compatible with the following Shimano® pedal bodies: PD-R8000, PD-R7000, PD-6800, PD-R550 and PD-R540."

There's a data field for Garmins that will estimate your power in real time. I don't think these different estimates are fundamentally different, one may have some modest insight into wind conditions but doesn't know your body position, whether you're drafting, or what your rolling resistance is like.

I'm thinking I might pull the trigger on a Garmin Rally RS100. I did see a review with the Youtuber Shane Miller


It indicated a slight accuracy issue with the Garmin Rally pedals? Has anyone heard anything that backs up his findings or has anyone seen any field reports on their performance? I wasn't aware the Garmin Vectors had so many problems.
