Any experience with the Kurt Kinetic inRide power meter?

I'm speaking of this product:



This is designed only to be used with a fluid trainer, which I happen to own.

I'd like to use the bleak winter months to train indoors and structured programs like power meters. I'm not going to spend huge amounts of money on a power meter. This product got reviews all over the place. I'm wondering what real life BFs think about it.

A couple hundred bucks is a large chunk of an entry level power meter. Save your money and use trainer road's virtual power.
However, I did just that and pretty much ran out to pick up a power meter. They are a very nice training tool IMHO. Now I must have one on each bike...eventually.

To answer your question, a buddy of mine called it useless.

Downer.

I bought one anyway, based on some reviews. It's specific to the KKT and I'm going to try it with the TCTP. MMMV.
