Cycleops PowerTap and Solvang Power Camp

By Hunter Allen

2012 Solvang Power Camp ROCKED!!  It was a great week of riding and learning with 22 attendees from all across the country!  Really wanted to thank everyone for coming!
Talking Power, showing off the sweet wheels!
One of the things that made this camp even better was our OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT of CYCLEOPS as our new powermeter sponsor for all Peaks Camps!  We tested 5 sets of both the 45mm and 65mm G3's at camp to rave reviews!!!

45mm G3 Carbon Wheelset
45mm / G3 Hubs!

My review is simple; these wheels were awesome.  Easy to set up power (Ant+) with both my Garmin 500 and the supplied Joule w/ GPS made dialing in the "tech" set-up super easy and completed in less than 5 minutes.  On the road, these wheels were perfect for the long sweeping rollers of the Solvang area, handling the "varied" road surface very well!  For those of you that have had the pleasure of riding in the Solvang area you know that you get a pretty wide variety of road surface ranging from the smooth highway 246 to the dirt and chop of Figueroa, and these carbon clinchers passed the test!!  I was also pretty impressed with the braking surface, always a concern for me when bombing off a big climb but the Enve supplied rims and pads handled like a dream!!!

We will have demo sets for trial at all Peaks Camps throughout 2013, sign-up and come give them a try!
