Iíve decided to bit the bullet and finally get myself some power pedals. Iíve read the reviews but was interesting in folksí thoughts about these who have used them. Powertaps seem easier to install / swap between bikes / more robust and reliable? Iím going for single sided as really canít stretch to the cost of a dual sided power reading. TIA.

V3 are just as easy to swap as P1's now. They are reported to have a number of teething problems and i beleive (it may have been fixed now) bluetooth isnt working yet.

I have P1's (dual side), 3 yrs give or take now and they just work. Cant fault them. original problem of only being able to update firmware via iOS but now rouvy does it also so PC (and i think android also).

I'm looking into power meters and am leaning towards the Favero Assioma, well liked by DC Rainmaker and others, available as dual for £656.10 from clevertraining using the 10% discount code (DCR10BTF) from DCR. Single side would be approx £410 using the same code.

There's a good comparison of 3 pedals here:

Or, fresh in from from the5krunner

https://the5krunner.com/2018/05/16/power-meter-pedals/

Discount codes available from that site too with different stores.

Reading this stuff I've realised that my watch can't handle the dual outputs so a bike computer may be required too.

I've bought some Powertaps Smile I'll have a play with them over the weekend. Looking forward to hopefully getting some useful info and taking my training up a notch or two.

i think cyclepowermeters comes in at £5 cheaper than Clever Training for the Assima DUO (just checked) and the CPM site says new stock in Friday 18th. And you're buying from Bob Tobin in Rugby he's been supporting Britsh cyclists/triathletes since 2007.

Check wherever you bought your last bike from eg i think a mate got at least 12% and a further £5 from SigmaSport when signing up for their newsletter https://www.sigmasports.com/newsletter

I bought mine from Bob. Great service and friendly. Will give honest advice. They used to be active on here back in the day.
