for those of you in the know, how do you like the Powertap system:

1. as a training tool/system? and

2. as a quality hub?

Thanks much.

1) fantastic, would never go back to training and racing without power. But also get the cycling peaks software

2) Average quality

check the archives of the wattage mailing list at for all the information you might want.

There is a review of the different power measuring systems i.e. powertap, srm, polar, etc. in the current Velonews. They thought the powertap was the best bang for the buck. The major drawback being the weight of the rear hub.
