I know opinions may vary, but I like my Stages PM's. Are you a USA Cycling member by chance? I think they're still doing 20% off Stages right now if you are. If I had 5800 all around, I'd probably do option 3.
Unfortunately no. I'm from Canada.Are you a USA Cycling member by chance? I think they're still doing 20% off Stages right now if you are.
Yes, the bike has 105 all around except the crankset.If I had 5800 all around, I'd probably do option 3.
All good ideas!A couple of other options would be to get a stages for your current FSA crankset. Get 53/39 110BCD rings (they do exist as Rotor makes them on Q and round rings).
When you say the Pioneer unit, are you talking the left side only one? I'd personally recommend a spider based one that measures power from both sides.
Or, you could go Powertap C1 chainrings as they are only compatible with 110BCD and they do have 53/39 options. Just make sure your frame/crank is compatible but you'd have to do the same thing anyways for any left sided PM too.
I'd personally recommend a Quarq Riken AL or a Power2Max FSA Gossamer (those start at 610-630 + assembly/shipping) which is great option for well received PM.
That's a smoking deal on the Praxis. I like my 4iiii a lot, and it cost almost that much on the Kickstarter deal. It gives numbers that are ballpark, IMO, to my Stages.Indeed they are, but the Praxis Zayante + 4iii is a bargain at $499 but I also like the idea of stages + Qring....oh boy
