There's never anything a little 'more wallet friendly' with campy is there..

Trying to put campy back on my C60 because I mainly miss the ergo levers and quiet drivetrain but trying to source a wallet friendly powermeter whilst keeping the crankset is near impossible.

Prefer to remain crank based....love my Quarq, so reliable and consistent but its Shimano specific
SRM-----nope $$$$$$$$$
P2M----over 1200 euro $$$$
Stages ----single sided only and still $$$

guess the only way is Vector or Assioma

Go with Assioma. Best bang for the buck and you're not stuck with crank specific-only power meters.

You don’t have to give up your Quarq just a because you’ve switched to campy. It works just as well.

Unless it’s a 165mm gxp crankset in which case sell it to me ;)

+1 Assioma

... and, your Campy cranks will look beautiful without all the PM crap attached.

....until your eye falls on the bulky pedals that unbalance the careful look.

I run Quarq on my V1-r with SuperRecord 11sp. Works perfect and doesnt look bad at all.

Are you running it with SR cassette and Record chain?
Whats your Quarq? Red chainring? or Shimano chainring?

I remembered trying to mate my Chorus with my Quarq+R9100 chainring, the FD just didn't like it.

Vector 3.

I do not believe Campagnolo is marketing stuff on the lower end of the market. Everytime they do, they seem to fail.

Having gone through he same saga recently, let me throw my 2 cents:

-I went through months of poor shifting with SR. Have all Campy except I was using lighter cables and outters. Replaced them recently and the tuning was not only a breeze but it is all like butter and super precise as it should have been all along. Lesson learned in that NOTHING WORKS WITH CAMPY LIKE ALL CAMPY!!!!

-I use Time pedals in all bikes. Like them, are light, and didn’t want to switch all bikes due to a pedal based PM. If I used Look based pedals I would have gone that route for a pm choice.

-ultimately bit the bullet and got P2M. Campagnolo arma, Cult bearings, and rings. Everything works and works/shifts like butter!

Again, I’d do pedal based if If that is a choice.

Campy is a high-end component manufacturer that doesn't make low-end stuff. Shimano is a low-end component manufacturer that also happens to sell some good high end components. Whereas Campy is still run like a small family business, Shimano is a huge company with thousands of employees, and is more widely used because Shimano has the cash from its huge low-end components/fishing business and can afford to sponsor more pro teams and flood the market with more affordable components, simple as that. I for one am not a fan of the corporate future of cycling where all bikes are designed and made in Taiwan and fitted with Chinese or Japanese components, but I don't see how Campy can survive 10-20 years from now unless they really catch up in terms of marketing and market share.

If I break something on my bike, the repair cost is likely to be more than my car (insurance), which says a lot...I need to replace my cassette and possibly a brake lever and I almost choked when I saw the price on those things.

SR 2015 here with a Quarq dzero + praxis.
Shifting is average. I'd do an NG Eco with Campy rings if I could do it again, especially now that the eco is marginally cheaper
