For those of you looking at STAGES for a crank-based power meter solution you can now buy them online AND you can get 10% off with the Power Meter City code: 5knov16.
Stages have held off from dealing through online channels for longer than most of their competitors. There are now selected online dealers offering them.
The 5KNOV 10% coupon code also works with STAGES accessories and indeed with most other non-Garmin power meter products on their site.
Prices start from: $529.99 less a discount of 10% = $476.99 +taxes and shipping, as appropriate
I’d definitely consider STAGES as a single-sided crank PM option. Perhaps consider ROTOR for a dual sided crank PM solution especially if you use their Q-Rings and perhaps consider BePRO pedals for dual-sided or single-sided power pedals. The cheapest way into power is with the POWERPOD.
changing a single crank or a couple of pedals REALLY is EASY once you’ve done it a few times – super handy if you have more than one bike.
