Thank you to the good folks over at SRM for their great support of my Epic Adventures. Shaun you rock– thank you!! After five years of riding a Power Tap I am finally free to ride any wheel I want. My days of building race wheels with a Power Tap are over! What’s more is I can finally use my Zipp ZEDTech 2’s that have been sitting collecting dust in my garage.
The SRM Dura-Ace 7900 wireless power meter was a breeze to install. It literally took all of 10 minutes to install the SRM onto my 2010 Felt F2 with Di2. I have a spare magnet and handlebar clamp for my TT bike. I haven’t decided whether I will take two bikes to the Furnace Creek 508 this year because I don’t know if I want to have my crew members swap the crank out …but I just might. It will take less than 5 minutes because the head unit mount for the handlebar and the magnet on the bottom bracket will already be installed. Just the crank has to be removed and installed on the other bike.
Tomorrow will be my first training ride with the SRM. It will be a long ride (century plus) on a hot day (100F) with lots of climbing (15,000 feet). I’ll blog about it tomorrow.
