The full announcement from LIMITS is here but essentially the announcement says that there will be some units shipped to reviewers in December with production cranking up in early January and continuing in Feb/March. Presumably this will be dependent on acceptable reviews. Presumably they are confident they can deliver.
The funding channel is still being left open to LIMITS for new backers. It looks like they may be hoping for or needing a bit of extra capital. Doubters clearly have a different interpretation entirely.
What would make an acceptable LIMITS power meter? 2%, 3%, 5% inaccuracy? Is turbo-based accuracy sufficient or are real world conditions needed?
It’s left-side measurement only. So what would be the meaning of 2xleft side versus an accurate Powertap wheel based reading? What if the rider has asymmetry?
What if you compared it to a left side crank meter or pedal based meter? Fine but how accurate is the crank/pedal-based meter? So you’d have to compare the accuracy to a known inaccuracy of another left-side meter.
A spider/chainring is on the right hand side.
Not so straightforward.
