• My Powertap P1 pedals went back to Chain Reaction for a warranty repair (battery issue, possibly my fault...) and I've now been issued a voucher to buy a replacement set. Which causes a bit of a dilemma...

    Favero Assiomas would be my first choice, but they're out of stock at CRC. I have 3 months to use the voucher, so I could wait but CRC told me they don't know if/when they'll get them back in stock.

    So that leaves either the Garmin Vector 3 or Powertap P2. The voucher I have is for £490, so I'll have to put some extra money in and currently, the Garmins are £599 in the sale vs £689 for Powertap.

    The Powertaps are ugly and heavy (why did they make the P2 silver? It looks even worse...), but I've heard so many horror stories about the reliability of Garmins, it puts me off them. And at least the Powertaps are a known quantity (I think the upgrades from P1 to P2 are pretty minor).

    So, do I:

    1. Wait and hope the Faveros come back in stock (but if they don't, the price of the Garmins and Powertaps could go up as they're currently discounted)
    2. Spend the voucher + £100 and get the lighter, better looking Garmins, with the knowledge that they could give me issues.
    3. Spend the voucher + £200 and get another set of Powertaps
  • I got some Assioma Duo a month or so ago from Wiggle. They were out of stock with no date on but I had the notification on. No wonder they went quickly once they arrived as I got them for £504.
