Cycleops PowerBeam Pro vs Computrainer

When it comes to purchasing a power meter, my recommendation will always be to choose the most flexible product that your budget allows. For this reason I advise purchasing an on-bike unit that can be used both indoors and outdoors, and for training and racing. However, there are some compelling new indoor power training options that may fit your niche. Cycleops, maker of the most popular power meter, the Power Tap, has been incorporating its technology into spin cycles, and most recently, the PowerBeam Pro stationary trainer.

PowerTap tips

I got it. Yup, a nice pretty PowerTap. I got it built into a new rear wheel just for kicks and installed it two nights ago. Needless to say I have two rides on in on the trainer and really am looking forward to the potential of learning more and improving my riding with it.
