Agreed. The only reason to buy SRM now is the aesthetics so pods would be a total loss of positioning and would indeed cross-over into the broader reputation. I can only hope you are wrong.

New ROTOR 2INpower DM, seems to be based on their recent Aldhu crankset http://rotorbike.com/catalog/default/ro ... -road.html
I see the DM spider. This is a good thing to reduce the weight of the 2Inpower. I have tried the spider on Aldhu and it's excellent in terms of stiffness and weight.
BUT there is one issue: I don't know anyone who has the same OCP on inner and outer chainring. For me, it's 2 on big chainring and 1 on small chainring. So, I need to choose bestween 1 or 2 with this spider, whereas on my 2Inpower with 2 separated chainrings, I use 2 different positions. But for those who are using just one chainring, that's OK. If I decide to use the DM, I'll probably adjust the spider in position 1 on mountain rides and keep position 2 for flat rides.
I'm waiting for an improved 2Inpower in terms of weight. After 2 years of use, this is a perfect powermeter, except for the weight. With replacing the 2Inpower by and Aldhu, I feel I'm flying with Aldhu, which is about 250g light than 2Inpower, but has not powermeter features...

There's a new company developing a power meter that fits between the pedal and the crank arm. They're called IQ2 (iq squared? or something like that). Saw an add on facebook, they are launching a kickstarter tomorrow.

Looks interesting here's the website. It looks to sit neatly along the crank arm will be interesting if it works on Campagnolo carbon cranks. I've not had chance to read the specifics.

Heard I might be wrong about my pedal comment on the pods. Still nothing in FCC that I can find, but could be 3rd party dev that isn't Look or SRM doing the electronics or using a smaller module such as a new one I found from Taiyo Yuden ( 5.1x11.3x1.3mm) so that could fit inside a body.

Tobin, seeing "Taiyo Yuden", I share your sentiment :D
