Giveaway Extravaganza: SRAM Quarq Riken Power Meter


What? You thought I’d be just doing watches today? Oh how wrong you are…you just wait…I’m only getting warmed up.

The Quarq power meter allows you to more accurately pace your race and training efforts, ultimately increasing the likelihood of a more successful day. By using power instead of speed, you’ll be able to normalize the impacts of wind or hills, and keep a constant effort according to your race plan. Wait, you did have a race plan right? You know, something roughly sketched out that said more than just ‘find finish line’? Oh dear…maybe we ought to just start with nutrition first…

  306. Shangrila Rendon

    I read your review about the product and really appreciate it. As I am an engineer and competitive triathlete myself, I can say that you did a great job. If I am chosen to be the winner, the SRAM Quark power meter will be of great use! However, does that mean that I would have to get SRAM RED 2012 group set from my own pocket or would you have another give away for the SRAM RED 2012 group set =)?

    I am not that familiar of the Polar power meter just yet, but based on your review, the accuracy between Polar, Computrainer and SRAM Quark Power Meter don’t vary much. But then again, there are so many variables that can affect the power. What I like is that the Quark power meter would be compatible with my Garmin and even has its own iphone application.

    Btw, I may just get your recommended $14 gizmo weight too =). I’m curious… which one of the bikes that you weighed were the heaviest and the lightest?

  307. Dan

    Power please!

  308. sami
