Naar verwachting zullen de systemen eind April begin Mei geleverd kunnen
gaan worden.
De laatste test worden momenteel uitgevoerd door team Belkin en Raboliv.

The products will be sold in the Netherlands through Santini Benelux.
The systems are expected to be delivered end april beginning may.
This moment the last tests are in progress by Belkin and Raboliv.

Anyone of you have ridden the first version?

Ah I see. Thanks. So wouldn't work with the Athena groupo.

Not sure what you mean?

It's a Campag Ultra Torque crank retro-fitted with Power2max powermeter. If Campag 11 speed rings are fitted it'll function exactly like an Campag 11 speed (SR, Record, Chorus, Athena) crank.

As I previously said, it needs Ultra Torque cups. If you've got Power Torque cups you'd need to change them.

Good news for those considering a Quarq, bad news for those who may have recently bought a Quarq:

Quarq drops price (and chainrings) on power meters

Ahhh, 694 g doesn't sound bad.

But, Porky Pig called. He wants his crank back.

Chainrings, bottom bracket and cadence magnets add minimal 300g additional weight to total system
So 994 g, not 694 g !!!!!!!!!

Specialized is good at many things, but their record on electronics is relatively poor.

Quarq seems to belong backwards at the moment, their product is too expensive and not as technically good as Power2Max

How would you say they are not as technically good?

I've tried to attach a pic but it doesn't work. I've no account at flickr, cloud ... so I just could upload it directly from my notebook. In other forum this is working, here not, sorry.

I've had my Campy P2M for a few weeks and am happy to report that it works exactly as expected. Paired immediately with my Garmin 500. Very nice unit. Crank without rings or chainring bolts weighs 631 grams.

Apologies, completely missed your post: Campagnolo deliveries are ramping up, first units are out with customers already.
