The Amazing, Incredible, Extraordinary Super Pedals!

In a (quite impressive, thorough, well photographed and extraordinary) VERY LENGTHY (and only anticipatory to an even lengthier) article/review of the MSRP $1600* Garmin Vector power meter (aka über pedals), the extensive and sophisticated functions of watt-meter pedals and cycling computers were explained and their virtues extolled.

My eyes rolled. Jacques Anquetil rolled over in his grave. And I actually laughed aloud.

These… I call them “pedals” – these pedals measure and record the forces exerted on your pedals and translate them into watt output. The more watts, the harder you are training.

My response is simply this link:

and this:
