This powertap worth it?

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

I found this on ebay and I'm wondering if this generation is worth buying.

Thanks!

No, it sucks. I wouldn't bid on that if my life depended on it.

That's what I figured. I was just curious to see why people weren't biting.

Edit: Price doubled since I posted here haha.

never post the links here because if there was a possibility of getting it for cheap it is now gone.

Thank you, captain obvious. That's the point of this thread.

It's already overpriced if you ask me, it's the old old black CPU with limited memory, no HR strap, and who know's about the seals on the hub (the earlier one's were a little "shy" in the rain).

Not my auction. I was interested in it a little bit, but more curious than interested.

On the C&V forum, we post auctions we're interested in and others back off. That's not the case here I've learnt.

Thanks, I'll keep in mind to look out for a new one if I decide to get one. That won't be for a few years though and by then today's bells and whistles will be goodies for me to use.
