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

They only gave me the option of a new crank arm. The sensor is imbedded into the crank arm itself of its not just attached on the outside. I hope that helps!

Check out 4iiii, they have a similar power meter where you can send in your crankarm/crankset and have them installed.
Power Meters ? 4iiii Innovations

Their crankarm option offers a large number of options, but the crankset looks like it's only shimano. I have no experience with the power meter, so no idea how good it is.

I'm refitting my 5 year old Tarmac Comp that I bought a year ago from my LBS's rental fleet. Got a great deal, but the 105 parts are pretty beat up. Bought a 8 piece Ultegra 6800 group, RS81 C50 wheels and Easton EC90 bars and stem. At the shop now getting built up. Here's the before pic (at the time I bought it over a year ago)

I needed a fresh bottle of ProLink and I tossed a pair of LG socks in the cart to ride along on the shipping charge.

I totally agree. I've owned the aluminum version for the past five years and finally gave it away and used my generosity as an excuse for a minor upgrade.

Pulled the trigger and picked up a Garmin Edge 820. Purchased it from Bike Tires Direct and used my account credit to knock off 35 bucks from the price with free shipping. Still not cheap but every little bit helps.

It is an emergency pump. I only need it to inflate enough to get home/back to car.

I find that a waste of time personally. If I'm fixing a flat on the road my intention is to continue my ride and not cut it short to go home or go back to the car, therefore I want a pump that will give my my usual riding pressure to continue my ride without risk of pinch flats.
