Power2Max Campagnolo powermeter. Never given it a second thought and never given me a single problem. Change the battery once a year and I'm good to go.

Um, both of the above? I have a PT wheelset and on my TT bike, a P2M chainset. Both work very well.

Pioneer offers dual sided built on a customer provided Potenza crank, and Stages offers left side only Chorus up to SR.

If you can live with the cleats, Garmin Vector 3 or the other pedal based PM options are worth considering, especially if you have other bikes. Currently using the Vector 3 with my H11 crank and used the Vector 2 with my prior SR crank. The Vector 3 is much easier to install and less sensitive to a proper install than the prior versions, and the Powertap P1 pedals and the Favero Assioma also look easy to install with the Favero being the least expensive and lightest of the 3.

Using Favero Assioma Duo.Very satisfied for now.... Using them on two my bikes, need less then 5 minutes to move from one to another....

I was worried how they'll work vs my Look Keo Blade Ti pedals, seem Favero are better (easier to find the pedal in the ride to clip). Using them with regular Look Keo Cleats (which have now like 3500 km on them and no problems at all)

Only negative side vs old pedals are 90 gm exra weight..

I have a couple of Power2Max Type S 4-arms, a 5-arm SRM and a Record Stages. If I had to keep only one I think it would probably be the Power2Max.

how often do you move them from bike to bike? I'm about to start doing the same and i'm a little worried about the long term damage...

I have a power2max NG which has been on the bike almost a year and been faultless really impressed and think I've only had to recharge it 3 times. It looks about as ugly as the standard 4 arm Campag cranks so nothing lost or gained in that department.

I've had a Stages Super Record matched up with my old 5 arm Super Record cranks on another bike and I've been fairly impressed with that so far. I thought there was an issue with the battery as the original lasted all of 4 rides but I've been measuring another with a multimeter regularly and it's barely losing any charge though I am removing it after every ride. Once I get a bit more confidence I'll leave it in and see how it drains then.

Money no option I'd purchase a P2M every time but if you already have the cranks the Stages is a good option with excellent customer service from what I've read. And you might need it!

What? These things have a battery? I would never have known because you forget as the years go by without having to replace it. Let's see... 1900hours, say an average 15mph... so... 28,500miles. Hmmm... 28,500/7 years= over 4,000 mile/yr for 7 years. And not a single missed beat. Bulletproof... sealed from all weather elements. Water ingress? What's that? Super clean look. No sign of any lumpy sensor or battery doors. The decal shown goes perfectly with the Campy groupset. Price is the only downside, so I get it. But if you can swing it pricewise, why not.

My first powermeter was a hub based Powertap SLC+. Didn't like that it was dedicated to one wheelset, was big and bulky, and the hub flange design was not the best for the spokes and caused breakages. Eventually went with SRM and never looked back.
