Here is a little video about a new product we are working on - the Quarq Qollector:
We held the first ever Quarq Power Camp with Hunter Allen a few weeks ago here in Spearfish, SD. The camp was a great success; good weather and a great bunch of riders, including four from the Fly V Australia pro team.
Yes, those are buffalo!

The power gurus from Wiredbike.com have done a nice writeup on the CinQo for PezCycling:
Highlights of the update from v2.6 to v2.7 are:
• Improved data recording in once per second mode
• Added ability to set averaging method for power and cadence
• Removed cadence filtering for power meters
• Made improvements to try to prevent spurious Auto Pauses
We've also been working on more CinQo models. Below are a couple pre-production units were testing at the moment.
We can't give an exact release date for these CinQo versions since there are still variables in place to get them through production. We're targeting late spring / early summer at this point. The same applies for compact versions of the CinQo for the SRAM S900, FSA Team Issue and Rotor Agilis cranks.
Again, this is only a rough estimate. We'll be sending out an email to our announcement list as soon as we have the new versions of the CinQo ready.

We've been getting a lot of inquiries about the ring of Saturn. In particular, folks are wondering if we have a customized inner chainring.
The answer is no, the inner chainring is not custom made by us. We just use the stock chainrings that come with the cranks. Here are some photos that will hopefully help clarify that. You should be able to use most any off the shelf chainrings with the Saturn, provided they have the correct bolt circle diameter. (130 BCD or 110 BCD, depending on the CinQo)
