I have to disagree, the fact that they are not producing new products is a bad sign. As as an engineering business when cash flow becomes a problem the first thing you do is cut R&D spend to reduce your operating costs and extract the most revenue out of your business by continuing to see your existing product line.c60rider wrote: ↑Mon Mar 05, 2018 7:06 pmI doubt they'll be gone in a couple of years but they'll not gain any new customers as they're way out of price for most. Power meter price has and will continue to drop in price so any new riders to power dipping their toe will probably go stages, pioneer, 4i etc and probably find they work perfectly adequately. And marketing sells products. 20 years ago the top teams all tended to ride Colnago. They drifted out of sponsorship and most bikers now seem to lust after he latest trek, specialized, bmc, canyon etc why? Because the pros ride them. Same with power meters hardly anyone is using srm now so if a product is good enough for them that's what the masses will buy.
SRM aren't used by pros as much now as other manufacturers have caught up and passed SRM. The same is true of Colnago and other frame manufacturers. You are living in fantasy land if you think Colnago are even remotely close to cutting edge of bicycle frame design. In the case of SRM, their implementation, particularly the temperature compensation, is markedly inferior to what is implemented in modern powermeters like the Power2Max, Quarq etc.
Today with SRM you are not riding a market leading powermeter, but you are paying a market leading price for it.
