So after reading through this: https://forum.trainerroad.com/t/a-wild- ... s/18627/24 and looking for a power meter option for my Trek Checkpoint, I decided to try this hack.
Do you have any pics of the CXR's side-on with the cap on? In your first pic it kind of looks like the cap is recessed.

The CXR's do appear wider than the mForce models from pics...
I don't have them on right now, I switched back for road riding. But the cap fits just like the M Force. The picture I posted was missing the side cap, it's not recessed at all.

Well, if the cap fits... :D

Thanks heaps for that. Makes my decision far easier!

Chuffed about this now I don't have to stress about two power meters on two bikes, easy swap between MTB cross and road 😀
What's to stress about? I got sick of transferring my pedals from bike to bike almost daily (especially from roadie to commuter) that I got another set of Assioma's. Still undecided which XPedo body to do the swap with.
Get another set to make life easier to be honest Im happy to tinker the night before the ride for 15 minutes rather than spending more for convenience...

How much longer is Favero axle to comparing to xpedo stock cxr axle?
Can I use it as single side power meter with some washer under right axle thread (to make them symmertical)

Mine were identical but I didn’t use the CXR as my donor pedal

Brilliant! Exactly what I want on my gravel bike/s and turbo set up.
I just need to source some sensibility priced Favero Assioma DUO donor pedals 👍🏻

For those that have done this conversion, how is it going ?

Any issues with damage/rock strikes ?

Anyone who did the conversion with cxr did they leave out these bearing shields? Seems dandy without them but leaves the inner bearing exposed. With them in the bearing binds up.

I sanded mine down to thin them up. Took some trial and error but worked great.

Cnapierala,
do you have any idea how thick they ended up for them to work? in my head i think that answer is 0mm lol. I want the nut to bottom out without preloading the bearing so the cap can do that. that seems to be how xpedo designed the system. Running without the shield for the time being as it loads up perfectly, yes that inner bearing is exposed but shouldn't be that much of an issue.

I dont have a measurement. I recommend just taking it slow and test fitting it as you go along. It worked out great though. Spins smooth as butter!
