So I went to my local distributor today and I'm surprised that they are selling a rotor 3d plus p2m ( no rings or bb) for 1700 odd euro, which is quite frankly even counting in distribution costs / profits rather ridiculous.

Using one for a couple of months, absolutely no issues so far.

My Specialized Type-S has also been flawless. Very consistent data from ride to ride. Love it!!

By the way, I have compared my P2M to my Cyclops Power Beam Pro (Built in Powertap) and it's always within about 3 watts of the Powertap (Powertap reads lower which makes sense since you have drivetrain losses). I have tested anywhere from 150-500 watts and it's always almost dead on.

My Type S has been awesome. Zero issues, just like with my last P2M.

My Type S (for S-works) has been flawless as well. Love it. Never an issue other than needing a 2mm spacer to fit on my BMC TM02- it rubbed without the spacer.

Why don't you order from them direct then ? :noidea:

its Euro 1090 ( including VAT, which you're exempt from, so would be about Euro 927, excluding shipping and taxes for you) .

Don't have the new type S, but as a brand I could not say enough about them. I have the Rotor 3d P2M and in 18 months of heavy usage, swapping from winter bike, to turbo frame and to road race bike, it has never missed a beat. 2 battery changes, which were carried out stress free. This is just as, something great should be, - it does exactly what it is supposed to so well, you never have to give it a single thought :D

Power2Max have a really good product, and really good customer support to back it up.

Meanwhile, SRM are resting on their laurels and being left behind.

Hi, is the Type S just one unit that is the same, I see there is different versions on the site but are you limited to one crank once you decide on one? I think the way the website is setup is to allow different options depending on the crank choice like the BB30 adapter to bb24? I have a cannondale CAAD10 and the bottom bracket creaks like plenty of other BB30 bikes. I was hoping to purchase the praxis adapter, but I am undecided on which cranks I will need. I don't think my existing FSA-SL-K carbon cranks can be reused if I am ditching the BB30?

Hi,

the Type S models differ by crank, because the crank interfaces differ.

If you want to use a 24mm crank with a conversion BB I would recommend the Rotor 3D with the Rotor or Praxis Works bottom bracket adapter.

You won't be able to use a SL-K crank set because the spider and crank are integrated in one piece and you need a separate spider and crank arm. Hence the recommendation for the Rotor 3D.

Best
