Just saw this on ST and thought I would pass it along for any looking to enter the power market.

I wonder if this means the Garmin Vectors will finally get released.

It will be interesting to see what this does to the prices on the used market.

I bought a 975 quarq on closeout with plans to sell my PT wheelset.  I suppose I should have done that earlier...LOL.

Looks like my GF will be training with power as I won't bother trying to sell now.

I doubt too much yet. Dropping the MSRP 40% or $510 sounds like a lot but I think a lot of the G3s were selling for around that number or less than that anyway.

Wheelbuilder.com updated their prices - DT Swiss wheel, G3 hub, joule GPS, and disk cover, 1400 bucks shipped. That's a solid deal.

Focusing on the first part of the pull and avoiding the dreaded “dropped elbow” can help transform your stroke, and allow you to relax and let go of these common challenges.
