    You want to get the torque out? Really?

    I think when it broke, all the torque leaked out. Check where you park your bike, you might be able to sweep some up off the floor.

    Yes, I want to get out the torque tube (sorry for my mistake). I have taken out the torque tube. So, now I am looking for a used upgrader to ant+.

    I think it will be hard to find a used part for a powertap - most would send it in for rebuild. Have you considered sending it in for a conversion to ANT+ ?

    Good work figuring that it is a threaded part, and points for making the 'wrench' to get it apart. But I don't believe you are going to have any luck getting parts, unless by some miracle you come across someone that's broken the hubshell on theirs.

    If you want use of it, you'll need to email cyclops and see if they'll rebuild it for you. Unfortunately, now that you've opened it, what might have once been a warranty or goodwill repair is now definitely going to be a full-charge rebuild.
    A good habit is as hard to break as a bad one..

    In Spain is always full rebuild, so 500 (about 660$) to repair torque tube ;). I wan to play with it. 500 is not affordable for me ;)

    How did this turn out ultimately? In particular, were you able to reassemble the hub after taking it apart?

    My powertap drains batteries completely overnight, which I imagine might be due to a simple electronic issue like a short. I have access to lots of electronics resources, so I feel silly paying for a costly repair or replacement when I may be able to deal with the issue myself.
