In the Velonews piece on Ryder Hesjedal's Cervelo RCA (http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/05/news/pro-bike-ryder-hesjedals-cervelo-rca_284837) it looks like he has a new SRM version of one of the Rotor models - I'm guessing its a version of the Rotor Flow? Anyone have any details on this?

Yep, looks exactly like the Flow that Garmin have been testing for a while. Wouldn't take much to get SRM to convert.

Standard pedals with Garmin written on the side. Else what need would there be for the SRM?! Irony really.

They could use the SRM and Garmin Vector to compare the data from both under "real conditions"....

would not be surprised if that's actually what they're doing

Those are not the Vector pedals. They're the same make of pedals (Exustar? I forget) without the power measuring parts. The Vector pedals I have seen have a dongle on the crank (the transmitter/battery housing) and the pedal itself is bulkier under the release mechanism.

Garmin are doing comparison testing; a friend of mine is participating.

This video says that those are not the "fabled vector pedal".

So embarrasing how such an expensive frame still needs a zip tie to hold the shimano battery in place.

I think hesjedal would love to have a Barfly 2.0 garmin mount, to also hold the Di2 central, again, removing zip ties and elastic rings for the garmin.

One of the members here has the SRM with the Flow arms (as pictured). I believe it is a white spec Venge.

Thanks guys, interesting to see that you can DIY this from a Rotor 3D+ SRM and a Rotor Flow. Indeed very sweet Venge with sweet SRMs!
