Fantastic deal and reliable service from Merlin as usual. Upon installation my power meter was not picked up by either Garmin or phone app, but after contacting Stages for advice I did a hard reset and all was well and it works perfectly now. Something to keep in mind if you have a moment of panic with your new device - and encouraging to have speedy and helpful support from the manufacturer.
Great value piece of training kit for the data you can get from it.
Easy to fit, works right out of the box (Garmin 800), simple to set up and pair while riding on a turbo.
Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is taking the precaution to securely tape around the battery compartment with electrical tape in lieu of potential water ingress issues identified by other users. Would be prepared to upgrade to 5 stars after a suitable period of trouble free use.
Really pleased great price. spent a long time trying to decide over single sided or much more expensive dual sided systems. I think for your first foray into power single sided is fine....30g heavier than my force crank. Paired instantly with 1000. Also replaces the need for a cadence monitor. All round pleased. Just wish they were cheaper and I'd get another for the mountain bike
Just a great deal on a great product. Have been wanting to train with power for some time now and as usual Merlin took care of my needs.
Installed on Sram Red crank.
Weight is increased just 50g from Sram Red crank arm.
It works very fine as power and cadence meter.
Supporting both ANT+ and Bluetooth is convenient for Garmin and iPhone user.
