Any thoughts or opinions on the Pioneer Power Meter? Pros vs Cons? Any user experience?
Not sure if you saw my post above. I have had nothing but good experiences with them.
Well, OK, there was one race when I neglected to calibrate my Pioneer before the race and the weather was unseasonably cool, like 30 degrees cooler even than the day before. Once I started the ride, my power numbers were way below what it felt I was doing. Like 75-watts lower. Took me a few miles to or burying myself to realize, they really were too low.
That's the only time I've ever seen that. So don't forget to calibrate. But aside from that one experience they've been aces.
In one case, I already owned the Crank (Shimano DA 9000) and so I just bought their kit, shipped it off to Pioneer with my crank, and got it back less than a week later installed. In the second case, I bought the crank with it already installed.
