|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?

You should end up with some very informed (if not somewhat slanted) responses.
My answers are
1 - I like it but it takes lots of discipline to base your training around wattage. Wattage based training means doing most of my hard miles solo, which isn't a lot of fun for me.
2 - It's ok. Mine is the latest model with good seals but the older ones had issues when used in the rain. The cup/cone type bearings may loosen up but that's an easy fix. The freehub portion is Shimano 105. They could have used something nicer on a hub that costs so much.
