Ergomo and Cranks


Jason

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the Ergomo Power Meter will cater for the Dura-Ace cranks in future product releases? Currently it only works with the Ergomo cranks.

Don't think so.I think dura ace will go the srm way when srm patency falls away.With ergomo you can use any square taper is isis crank (ergomo,FSA,old campag and best of all ZippWink

Ok stringbean, if I understand correctly... If I get a set of ZIPP cranks I can use the Ergomo BB power thingy without the cranks that come with it?

I think the  Ergomo cranks are made by FSA .

Yes the Zipp cranks are nice but are very pricey . If you plan on buying an Ergomo unit plus Zipp cranks ..you may aswell buy a set of SRM's.Confused

 

Sell your Trek 1500 , buy the Ergomo and a second hand Alu. Soloist for training . this way you'll save your Carbon race bike .Wink

The cranks that come with the Ergomo are currently free while stocks last, Marco still has some stock.

 

It will not be possible to support any external bearing crank system because the Ergomo is the actual BB - so no Dura-Ace or Mega Exo etc.

 

The Ergomo cranks are definitely rebranded FSA's - they are identical.  Zipp cranks will probably cost around R4k - very expensive bling if you ask me.

 

There Jason, I came to speak to you - now hurry, while stocks last Wink

Thanks bruce, but will it be best to install a power meter on a training bike or the bike you race on? I train on my Soloist (Without the 404's ofcourse) so I was thinking that if I get one I should put it on the Soloist. Just interesting to read the stats after a tough race or training session... Only thing is I won't be able to use it on the indoor trainer, unless Marco is feeling generous and does the buy one get one free thingy Big%20smile
