4 different stages power meters I've had, all same battery drainage issues, numerous times I was told they'd solved the issue! Just today received a full refund , time to try garmin vector 2 !!


I wouldn't bother with Vector, why not get the Powertap pedals, a lot less faff by the sound of it.


Or a Quarq Riken AL.

Took mine back after numerous dead batteries, sent back to Stages (At least 12 months old). Brand new one sent back, been using it now for must be 3 weeks on the same battery Smile

Hope that'll work for me. Mine's started eating batteries now after about 15 months.

And I was one of the protectors of Stages up until now... Sad

Low battery warning today. That's 45hours of riding time.

My local bike shop has loaned me a stages for a month and after the first few rides, I love it. And this is from someone who is using power for the first time and not a slave to numbers.

Based on your experiences, would you buy one ?

No. I had two, the second a replacement for the first. They both went very flaky with battery issues (I don't know what the 2nd gen version's like in this respect though).

I've had one since Jan last year. I've not ridden a huge amount in that time but have had no issues at all during this time.

I would check to see what other power options are out there and what suits you with respect to budget as well as training wheels/bikes and race setup.

I bought the stages since it as relatively cheap and I could easily switch it between my road bike, TT bike and even my MTB. It takes 2 minutes to remove from one bike and put on another.

One more child, and you'll be combing ebay for an Ergomo.

So what's the current consensus? Stages yes or no?

With a price of about 450, the alternatives don't even seem to be in the same ballpark, so if I jumped to power, it would probably be this.

Is it really not worth <100 quid to go two legged with either a power2max or PowerTap C1 The Power2Max gossamer is 100 quid more, but you get a full chainset for that?

Got BB30 with 50/34 - from what I can tell with my limited understanding, that pushes C1 out and power2max recommend the rotor 3d+ which then comes out at about 800.

I could be utterly wrong.
