is anyone using it? accuracy? pain-in-the-arse factor? thanks for you replies.

He's not sure if it's accurate or not, but works great to see if his power is increasing or decreasing, ie, relative changes. He's gotten way faster this year, which is probably independent of the tech. stuff, but it might have helped somewhat. Isn't it much cheaper than a powertap hub/new wheel also?

Watched a sensor system get shredded in drivetrain this weekend. It was making an awful racket during the race too. Expensive mechanical!

300 bucks and 300 grams down the shredder.
