this came in the mail yesterday

i've been using a power tap for about 9 months now, and i'm hooked. since i wasn't sure at first whether or not i would use it, or even like it, i opted for the cheapest version, the pro. it's a little heavier, but only a 100 grams, and it is a typical wired computer. i even bought a matching front carbon power tap hub, so i could have a matched wheelset. they turned out reasonably light, too, considering the rear hub weight, partially because the front wheel turned out so light.

i have been threatening to get a wireless version, which is also lighter, since the first month or so of owning the pro. especially after a couple of my customers have ordered them. very, very slick units. i finally ordered one for myself. the driving force behind it was needing a 24 hole version to lace into my team ROL wheelset. and, of course, being black was the icing on the cake.

hot, hot, hot! i can't wait. yes, i'm a parts geek. i do be lovin' me some bike parts.
