Default Power meters jump the shark

Look who's training with power now. I'll leave it to one of
you Masters Fatties to figure out whether he has an SRM or
Powertap from the pictu

As she [Karr] describes it, Bush is obsessed with the metrics of
biking, closely measuring the miles traversed and the calories
burned. Recently, the president obtained a power meter, which
measures wattage, a way to quantify how much power a rider is
producing.
"It's been fun to watch him become a serious mountain biker," Karr
says. "He's going over logs. He's moving fast on some very
[winding] trails."

It's nice to see him making progress on something. Also, Chung
just threw up in his mouth and sold his Powertap on craigslist.

Ben
I train without power.

Hmmm. Looks like he has disc brakes. That means it's not a Power Tap.
It also doesn't look like an SRM. It's possible it could be an Ergomo
even though it introduces an ideological problem: the Ergomo only
measures power from the left.

Did it ever occur to you that the editor who put the photo in doesn't give a
rat's ass about power meters and used an old photo?

It's true. He's been unable to update the Coalition Deaths chart for
months.

Which implies Chung can expect a CIA rendition squad
on his doorstep.
