    They look like the original vectors. These are no longer supported by Garmin. I have a set which were one of the first released for sale. I have had no issues with mine and they have worked well even though they have been moved from bike to bike many times. I recently lost a battery holder / cover. I emailed Garmin in Germany who got Garmin Australia to call me here in NZ. The Garmin guy needed my serial number from the box (it wasn't any of the numbers on the units). I explained I didn't have the box since moving from UK to NZ. He found me on the Garmin stats website and from that the number for my pedals. He then said that there were no spare covers shown anywhere in stock but that he could upcycle one from a returned and replaced warranty claim. He posted it to me in NZ all FOC. So in summary, nice unit that works well, shit that Garmin has dropped it so quickly after moving to the Vector 2 units, fabulous customer service.

    I don't think they work with anything pre 810 but the best thing to do is take your head unit to the pedals, tell it to detect powermeter and spin the pedals for a few seconds. If it works then I would say these are a good buy. Mine cost £1200.

    Well there is a chrome and red one on the net and under the pink paint and Moser decals my Moser is actually a Rigi

    I did it with my Koga. Partly because I had various black campag 11 speed components that sort of made a groupset - Centaur, Chorus, Athena. I love the Hyperon Two wheels, the frame is a bit love / hate mainly because I'm getting around to accepting it's too big for me. the Ultra Torque bottom bracket has been apart and together over and over I just cannot seem to get it to stay silent. 100km and the hirth joint starts clicking.

    I'll probably part this out one day as it is not a favourite ride on the other hand it does get a lot of attention from visitors who come to look at the wall of old school bikes in the garage.

    Given all the exclusions and costs you have to cover it is not economic to send it back to Lynskey. Take it to Enigma in Hastings. They are experienced in Ti frames and are happy repairing and modifying other makers frames. Reweld of that joint is not difficult but needs to be done right.
