    I think most folks results are like kytree's. Assuming you do have a difference (of notable amount, not 49%/51%) what exactly are you going to do to even it out. A bunch of one legged drills? There's plenty to focus on with a PM without the L/R data.

    I had Garmin vector pedals and liked the l/r data, but it wasn't anything more to me than just some fun to compare. I went to the Stages Dura Ace powermeter and one leg power meter was just fine and gave me almost all the info I needed. I am selling it now too if you are interested. No longer a power whore, ha.

    A two-sided, crank-based PM is still the best option with the least compromises.

    I'd say take a long look at Power2Max -- you don't have user calibration, but they are well-set up out of the factory and have few issues. I used one in Germany for most of three weeks, and *almost* went with one on the CAAD10 (in the end, a powertap wheelset was cheaper than Power2Max+wheelset, so I went with cheap+limited wheels choice).

    Ha! True, I bought it for other reasons including their trade in program using an old hub, but if I had a large difference between my L/R legs I don't have any idea what I would have done.

    AFAIK, you can still trade in your older hubs directly with powertap. It's a nice discount and pretty easy to do.
