This part covers the relatively unimportant Contents and Unboxing
Hey it’s a box ! OK it’s quite a nice one.
I’m also looking at the power meter alongside the Qarbon Q-rings. You buy the Q-rings separately and they come in packaging like this!
The INpower comes as the left-side crank+spindle/axle combo plus the drive side crank and MAS ‘spider’ (more holes for more Q-ring positions).
I just loved the Qring Qarbon display package here it is with the smaller ring too (non-Qarbon)
The INpower does not come with the 2 required allen wrenches/keys that are required tools for installation.
Here IS what you get. You get the 2 main components plus 5 chainring nut/bolt pairs plus 2 white (non drive side) and 2 black (one each side) spacers. You may, or may not, require one or both of the white spacers – it’s bike dependent.
Technically, I suppose, you also get an O-ring and battery cover but not the AA battery.
On the above image you can also see the large black nobbly ring on the inside of the crank. This is for closing any gap that may exist and so stopping all lateral movement.
I have the 172.5mm cranks. Sizes and compatibility are covered in the main part of this review in more detail.
Here is a closer shot of the ‘nobbly ring’ and also the 2mm allen bolt that frees/locks it in place. You can also see the generic part number ROT114 on the spindle. on the other side of the spindle is the unique ANT+ ID – make a note of that in case you need to enter it manually for some reason but it’s also on the left crank. You can also see a QR code which you could scan but I didn’t doo that.
Finally a quick prep for you. The image below shows the CORRECT way for the non-drive side black spacer and, if you need it, white washer. Zero, one or two of the washers go immediately next to the non-drive side crank should you need them. If you put the spacers on the other side you will probably have permanent gear shifting problems.
