Seems cheapest is about £550. Seems a good deal, but if anyone can find cheaper i'd love to hear as I really want some, but they are such a luxury.

Use discount code PBK17 at checkout.

If anyone's buying these and likes music, I have some £1000 speaker cables you might be interested in.

Such an obscene price for a great set in my opinion, love to know the markup on these!

I'll buy a power meter when they're £41.98, how long do you think I'll be waiting?

Voted hot btw.

What are you on about? If you could buy an equivalent bike power meter for £10, then your comment would make sense, but you can't.

How is it a deal when you pay £ 419.89 for a single pedal not a pair? You can get double sided pedal pairs for £799 on Ebay. Did I miss anything?

You get two pedals but only one measures power, this is all most people will need.

(Heat added by the way!)

It's remarkably easy to separate a cyclist from large amounts of money!

They're still just pedals.

Clueless.
The small percentage of racers that would buy these are not primarily buying them for the pedal functionality. If that was all they were interested in, then a 20 to 50 quid set of plain old 3 bolt pedals would suffice.
Having said that, there is the new blood of the golfing set that would probably be buying these to meter out their power for their sportives...

If you had access to an engineering lab you could probably make your own for about that price. But if you have the skill to do it your time is probably worth more than it would be just to buy them.

Golf eh?

Powermeters are expensive, but as they're becoming more popular they are coming down in price. Hopefully in the next 5-10 years they'll be commonplace and as popular as a heart rate monitor.

For me it's the only way to train.

I think you're both clueless.
Power is useful for all cyclists. In fact many coaches say that they are most useful for beginners! (Though I'm not of course advocating for beginners to go and buy a pm straight away).
As for using them for a sportive - well that is a perfectly good reason to buy a power meter. A very small proportion of cyclists race.
I myself time trial and would find a power meter incredibly useful. In fact, I dare say I would find it significantly more useful than the vast majority of low level racers who will only race short crits.

I guess for you using a carbon bike for a sportive is also for those from "the new blood of the golfing set"!!!

In the same way buying a Ferrari just to drop the kids off at school is? Its overkill and an indulgence for most.

I agree; TT's are indeed races (of truth) where power meters come into their own; trying to meter out your maximum sustainable output over a set distance without fading.

Arguably if you are "training" rather than just riding, there is a justification but even amongst my clubs riders its few and far between (perhaps less than 25).

Your carbon bike comment is a bit trite; it's all about ride quality and power transfer (when I made the step up from alu. I immediately noticed how stiff the downtube was which really aided climbing) and far less of a luxury than power meters. But then you could further regress your argument to downtube shifters vs sti, 11 speed vs 9 speed etc...

I agree they have a place but as a beginner, learning to ride on feel based on your body's signals is a basic skill youll appreciate when your power meter pedals unexpectedly have to be sent off for repair a few days before your sportive.
Different strokes and all that...

Will these be compatible with my muddyfox bike?
