Im also in process of deciding which power meter to buy.
Im using Campagnolo Record 2015, and dont want to spend big money for SRM or Power2Max, and also want to be as lightweight as possible, so im trying to decide between three:
1. Fevero BePro Pedals
- It will add 122 gm compared to Look Keo Blade 2 Ti pedals
- Not so expensive (same price as Stages only one side)
- Having power on both sides (im not sure if i need this, and it's main point of deciding)
- Negative side is that it can interfere with my shoes (Specialized S-Works 2014 size 43), so maybe i should need to add shims (which will change the stack and which i dont like)
2. Stages for Campagnolo
- Almost no added weight
- I can ride whatever pedals i like (im using now Look, but also have a pair of Time Xpresso)
- Look very nice
- Negative is measuring only one side (do i need both sides or its marketing?)
- And negative could be reliability (but as i can see on Gen 2 is much better)
3. Garmin Vector Pedals
- Positive sides:
- very good compatiiblity with Garmin Edge 520 which im using
- Pedal smoothnes analyzes (do i need this at all?)
- Measuring power on both sides (do i need this at all? )
- Pods which is easy to brake as i can see, and also possability to interfere with my shoes
Im not racing in this moment, but riding like 200-250 km per week (and 3000-4000 meters climbs on that rides), want to improve my self so that why i need power meter.
The main thing i should clear is if i need double sided power meter or not?
I read a lot that even one side power meter with not detailed accuracy is good as soon as is consistent what it shows.
So which route should i go? Im riding Colnago C60 bike with Bora One 35 Tubular wheels (so hub is not option)
