Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used this power meter a couple of times now. Seems to be working properly and is accurate. A few notes that may help others: on the install instructions included with the unit, there was a section for installation without the magnet. This is what I attempted as I use a duotrap for speed and cadence. The unit will not work without the magnet. I read a few places that with a firmware update it will work, but I use a Garmin Edge, so I cannot verify.
Another note: I installed on a Trek Emonda SL6, and after the first couple of rides I could see, upon very close inspection, a small rub mark on the chainstay. I don't think it's anything to worry about. most people probably wouldn't even notice it, but there are small 0.5 and 1 mm shims available for the crank arm (they should really include a couple of these for the price of power meters, but whatever). I'll probably end up putting one on at some point, although any rubbing that happened has probably worn off enough material to not rub anymore... I may just leave it. Power numbers look good and seem to be accurate. it's cold out now, so I'll keep track of it as temps get warmer in the coming months.
For some reason, this shipped to me USPS Priority and it took almost a calendar week to get it. Ordered on Sunday, received the next Saturday.. which in this day and age of 2 day and overnight everything is disappointing. But Backcountry/competitive are good people and have always done me right, so still highly recommended.

Had a pretty big crash in this helmet. Cracked the chin bar and 2 places on top of the helmet around my forehead. Had a concussion but was not unconscious. The bad review bc the guy was unconscious isnt very fair in my opinion. It's light enough to use for long climbs in the middle of summer in the south without heating up much more than with a half shell. If you do 100% downhill, hi speed lo drag, don't get a light helmet with vents all over it, you're not pedaling anyway. I'd get a dirt bike helmet for that type of riding. This helmet works very well for what it was designed for.

The post drops and returns like it should, but every time I hit a big bump the seat slips back with a loud crack. It’s the single bolt clamp holding the seat rails. I’ve torqued to spec, used lock tite blue, it still slips. It’s a clean and nice design, but lacking proper function and durability.
