The wheelbuilder.com Powertap track wheel has arrived. It's the only one in Australia at this time and one of the very first of this version in the world. Wheelbuilder did a fixie adaptor for the first generation of Powertaps but they've been unavailable for quite a few years now.
Now we can swap wheels on track bikes and get power readings. From now on, a laptop comes to every track training session and we're no longer guessing. I need to work out a hire price structure for it. It's a very nice wheel, Edge 68 clincher rim (60mm deep carbon clincher), Sapim CXray spokes (32), Powertap SL+ hub with Rich Sawris's fixed gear modification and White Industries sprockets and carrier. We chose a clincher so that we can quickly and painlessly swap tyres for indoor and outdoor use, it'll have a Veloflex Record for DISC and probably a Bontrager Race-Lite for outdoor use.
