    If that is the case with the kind of resources Garmin no doubt has thrown at this, then that's a very bad sign. It may be quite a while until this, or any other pedal-based power meter, gets to the market, if ever...

    They should give me a call for help.

    Yep. That's exactly what it means. Garmin has screwed the pooch repeatedly with this system. "It'll be out in March." "It'll be out in summer."

    Now it's "we cannot estimate a delivery date."

    I've said it before and I'll say it now: buy a Quarq now, train with power now, profit.

    How much did Garmin spend on the acquisition?

    Jerks. The Powertap G3 looks swell to me.

    It's sad this the Garmin Vector won't make it to market anytime.

    Off to get a Quarq. Now just need to decide if it makes sense to wait for the new Red version, or buy the existing 975 version.

    You shouldn't have to wait long for the new Red Quark crankset...One just arrived at a local coach's office for one of his customers.

    My guess is they are ready for shipping and will be available in the next couple weeks for everybody.
