Quarq Powermeter


After a cold morning ride (including a few minutes of stinging sleet falling in Hachioji and again on the West side of Otarumi Pass), what better way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon than to stop by Positivo and have Nagai-san install my new Quarq Cinqo powermeter. It works like a charm, immediately was "found" by the Garmin 705 (ANT+ compatible) computer. Just rode it around the neighborhood, but so far, a great piece of technology. And for David J.'s benefit, I should mention that this means NO COMPACT CRANK for me during this winter/spring training. I'll need to learn to ride again like a real man.

well done David. What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. Pain is temporary, defeat lasts forever etc. etc. I reckon you'll be cruising around 500 watts ;-)
Just got back from a little tour in the Hampshire alps with Juliane. We're thinking we need to keep in shape to keep up with you transalp guys!! Let us know when you're ready to visit for some high altitude training.
