Really? Mine's been solid. And what's wrong with cheap Disney-style 80's sci-fi? It was awesome!
No worries though. I'm not really seeing it, although it may be because mine's on Rotor TT Q rings and a 3D crank. The Quarq unit just blends in on my setup, but ymmv for sure.
Try the Rotor PM. Cleaner lines, good weight and reads power on both sides. At least, it's another alternative, as is the Power2Max, if you don;t like Quarq. I'll be able to report on the Rotor PM and my experiences with it in the mountains in the fall (I hope), as well as having power comparison data between it and the Quarq.
