Editor's Notes

December 05, 2018:

Investigated options that make sense for various budgets, including the Velocomp Powerpod on the lower end and the Garmin Vector 3 and Shimano Hollowtech II on the higher. Chose the Favero Assioma Uno and Quarq DZero Aluminum as top choices thanks to the way they blend durability and a strong range of features without over-the-top pricing.
