Well, you know what I am going to suggest, don't you. Seriously, though, if you are running Record, you might want to wait for the Campagnolo Record version of SRM. Are you running conventional rings or Compact (or both)?

Until I can buy it it's as good as vapour ware (as sexy as it looks).

And standard.

TP

just get an SRM. Whatever cranks suits you best. My DA srm is very convenient because I can swap it from TT bike to road bike in less the 5 min.

Will you buy new or used? What are you looking for? SRM or quarq?

Ideally something I can run with my Campag.

Not sure the $$$ will stretch to a Tune Smart Foot...

The thing with Uli is that if he shows it, he produces it (even the solar-powered PowerMeter was available, albeit for a limited time). If you don't want to wait, you can always get an SRM in 135mm bcd for your Campagnolo rings...

I used shimano 10sp chain rings on both my srm cranks (fsa and da7900) for a year and had no issues what so ever with wear on parts or shifting.

I know Shimano 10sp works, one of the boys has done it.

Which SRM's come with a 135BCD?

And I don't mind the Rotor ones either to be honest...

I only had 10spd campy a while back and worked fine with the FSA SRM.

As others have mentioned SRM gets my vote for proven reliability and easy to switch between bikes. Although it's a pain to change chainrings I've even had it on the track bike.

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.

Yes, I think I got lucky Fergie, friend if mine had the DuraAce Wireless and wired track. Wired no issues whatsoever. Wireless had endless issues and had to be sent off to Germany... twice.

I had one issue on purchase but has been faultless since (was draining battery too quick, firmware resolved the issue). So ~2 years of solid use.

My mtb Powertap, especially given the conditions it has to endure, has been totally faultless (over a year old, no battery changes!) The same cannot be said for the Powertap Joule cradle however :(

Might be hijacking the thread but anyone used the new Joule?

I had 3 Quarqs break in 6 months and the Garmin Edge 500 interface rendered the unit almost completely useless due to how often it was dropping data or entire ride files. Hopefully I will have better luck with a wired SRM.

Oh, from my experience so far, you will. Especially if its a wired unit.

DA 7800 wired- can't get more reliable than that. Too bad its going to be run on a Sram bike.
