Current Stage Info:

I got sick of crappy carbon rim braking, so new wheels. And my old wheels were laced to a Powertap so I had to switch over to crank based.

Hmmm... This bike is perfect. Noticeable readings difference between the Quarq and Powertap?

dudemanppl says:

At 200w it's about a 10w difference with the Quarq reading 5% higher. But all time highest power was recorded with te PowerTap, which is higher by about 50, although that might be just training haha.

Cranks look great! Just be careful! Apparently, raw carbon can deteriorate from UV rays over time.

Switched the cranks out, but I didn't see any deterioration in the few miles I did.

Yea, I'm guessing it would take hundred of hours direct contact.
