Just playing Devils advocate.

I have had no end of issues with SRM on various bikes. Cranks and Head Units.

Fortunately the SRM Oceania Service Centre is in Christchurch.


I have three used wired units - Pro on the road bike, FSA on the TT bike plus SRM Track cranks. Only issue I’ve had so far has been one of the solders in the PCV failing so readings were all over the place. It was fixed locally and has been fine since.

I’m annoyed that SRM Oceania has stopped local repairers here in Australia from servicing SRM's (not suppling parts from what I've been told). It means now that repairs/battery swaps are not officially possible in Australia, so I will have to start sending my gear to NZ! :evil:

I've had my Quarq with a Sram S975 crank on my tt bike since last October and I do pair it with a Garmin Edge 500. I have not had one single issue so I'm very surprised the trouble KWalker has had.

Well, the point of SRM is that it isn't exciting, it just works. It does take all the drama out of training with power. Now that I think about it, the PC7 in alloy is pretty exciting, as far as PowerControllers go. It is a bit heavier, but is machined from billet and really looks nice. Sammy Sanchez is riding a gold anodized version, so you might be able to spice it up that way.

It shouldn't be too surprising- there was a 35+ page thread on the Garmin forum about it at one point and its been so bad for people that Quarq readily provides customers with the older Edge firmware that works the best. I blame Garmin and not Quarq, so I would recommend a Joule headunit for those that go with a Cinqo.

As for the Cinqo units themselves- I have bad luck with things breaking and I rode them in some very wet/cold conditions. Who knows what happened and why, but I know others who haven't had an issue.

I'd just like to share that I just picked up a Cannondale Hollowgram SRM for $950. I'm very happy. It's wired and only PCV but that just means it's reliable. Now I've got some spare cash to buy some Enve Smart 6.7 wheels I think.

My Smart's on the way very soon.

Which makes going crank based even more exciting. Race wheels + power :up:

I think I am missing an Antipodean idiom there. :lol:

Seriously, though, there is a lot to be said for being able to ride whatever wheels you want and not have your data collection compromised. You aren't loosing anything from a weight perspective, as you are artificially limited anyway, so you may as well race with your PowerMeter.

I had a problem with my Quarq soon after it was installed - as you know - but since being replaced it has been faultless.
Connects to either my 500 or 800 every time no probs.
