    niterider rebel 8 and power?

    Just curious. "Virtual Power Meter" for under $200. Just wondering what people's experience with this product is and/or what people's thoughts are on the virtual aspect of the power meter.

    A VIRTUAL meter (of any kind) will leave you wishing you'd done VIRTUALLY anything but bought the dammed thing.

    I have the Rebel 8.0 and while I like most everything about it the "power" is pretty much a joke. It uses cadence and speed to calculate power. I can tell you I am surely putting out more power climbing a 12% grade at 8mph than going down that same hill spinning 100rpm, the computer says otherwise though. Check your PM.

    Got the NiteRider rebel 5.

    Worked great! For a day at least. Main unit can't seem to find the sensors now.

    Altimeter is not accurate (not surprising). Power meter is lame.

    I have two NiteRider lights and love them, I was looking for a wireless cyclocomputer that wouldn't get interference from the lights. Oh well.
