Dear all,

Does anyone know whether a Rotor 3D+ crankset that has a Power2Max installed, can be outfitted with a Osymetric chainset (110BCD)? I just came to the conclusion that the Rotor Q Rings XL that I ordered do not fit, at least not the outer ring. For the time being, I'm not yet willing to take it to the next level with the Rotor Q Rings and to use the dremel. Any input on whether Oysemtric rings would fit would be helpful.

These won't fit :

Would these fit ?

Not yet ready to do this with my Q Ring XL, as seen on slowtwitch, as Power2Max says it should be 'avoided' .. :-)

From the homework done by the individual on slowtwitch, I would believe that the Osyemtrics might be just about right?

I've obtained an answer through Power2Max, and they let me know that the Osymetrics 110 BCD should fit the Rotor 3D+ Powermax

I'll have an answer for you within a week, I hope. I ordered the 110 BCD Osymetric. I'll post the result here

Hi all,

Nicolas here from power2max. I am happy to confirm that you can mount 110BCD Osymetric rings without problems. The reason the 110BCD Aero Q-Rings don't work is that they interfere with the battery cover. The Osymetrics are cut out in that area, so no problem there. A training buddy of mine uses both the compact and the 130BCD version, I run the 130 BCD on my TT bike

I hope this helps,

Best wishes
Nicolas

Allright, thanks for clarifying Nicolas ! I'll post a picture once it's mounted.. To be sure, the cut out area is the one that needs to go underneath the battery cover, right ?

Hallelujah, succes ! :) It's not the cut out area though that needs to go underneath the battery holder. It's the opposite part of the ring Image

Sorry lyot, I misunderstood what you meant with cutout.

Enjoy your new p2m :)!

Thanks for the tip ! I'll let it on for a while, but probably will remove it within a couple of weeks/months.. A bit too white, indeed !

Does anyone know if you can fit the Power2Max meter to the Rotor Flow crankset? I had a search around but couldn't find an answer.
