We recently wrote this article https://titaniumgeek.com/kinetic-r1-smart-trainer-revisited-and-saved-by-4iiiis-power-meter/ and in the process of writing it, we realised that we needed a 3rd, yes, 3rd power meter.
Here in the UK, we’ve not only had the pandemic to deal with. We also had Brexit. Chainset redevelopment from the number 1 manufacturer of such things and the Suez Canal being blocked.
Add those all together and getting hold of bike parts can be difficult. That meant that getting hold of an extra power meter wasn’t so straight forward.
As we often type – if you train on a bike indoors, make sure that when you train outdoors, you are using the same calibrated power meter. This message is getting through and for cycling eSports on such platforms as MyWhoosh and Zwift, dual power is becoming essential.
4iiii have come up with a tremendous solution. Take off your crank, send it to them and they send your crank back with a (single sided in our case) power meter attached.
What we did was to send a Shimano 105 crank and 48 hours later we had the crank back, with a power meter and all for £299.
Fitted on the bike in just a few minutes, the crank and power meter in place
A short article and this is such a fabulous service and at a massively competitive price, we reckon that it is one to seriously check-out.
