Hi all,

I have a Sram SRM which is going on my Wilier Cento SL frame. I currently have the Grey plastic decal round disc in the middle of the chain ring. They now offer a new red color decal which i kinda like. It's only a cosmetic detail, but since i'm sending in my power meter in for service I thought I might ask everyone what their thoughts were on the color choices.

Below is a stock photo of the wilier and then the Grey SRM and Red SRM.

My main concern is to have a consistent look for the Wilier.

KEEP the decal you have - the red one SCREAMS "look at my SRM" - your current is much better in my opinion.

I wasn't aware SRM's fit the CentoUno frame. At least that's what I've been told with mine...

Get the "new" SRAM decal- red, black and white- more attractive than the one that you have pictured.

I would stick with the grey as well. Better to be subtle.

Do the grey.

Even better...upgrade the rings to the Red Black ones. That will look fantastic on that frame! Since you're sending it in for service the time to change the rings would be before recal.

I emailed SRM twice to ask them about compatibility with the Cento Uno. They have never replied to me...

I just heard from Wilier email customer service (though in broken english) that no Quarq or SRM powermeters will fit the Cento1 frame. They said "because the inside of the cranks does not clear the conical shape of the bb".

Also, that the only powermeter that "may work" is the SRM on Dura Ace cranks.

Anyone have a PM installed on a Cento1??

I am in the same position, looking for a power meter for a cento uno.

SRM web site has a pdf showing compatible bikes - this includes the Cento Uno with SRAM GXP Bottom bracket!!!!


Who is right?

Any Wilier owners out there with power fitted?

Impeccable frame!

I'd go for the stealth option on the SRM. You could also remove the chainrings and make a custom decal with al small sheet of carbon fiber. 3k fiber isn't very expensive if you need that much.
Ride it like you stole it

That's what I call German customer service, it doesn't exist!

Has anyone been able to confirm whether or not an SRM with fit a Cento Uno? I've e-mailed SRM in Colorado, but haven't received a reply.
