CAN I GET A STAGES POWERMETER SHIPPED TO ME?

Currently, Stages does not allow us to ship their powermeters.

WHICH CRANK-BASED POWERMETERS WILL FIT MY BIKE?

All Shimano and most SRAM and Quarq GXP cranks will fit BB90, BB86, BB30/PF30, BBRight, BB386EVO and traditional bottom brackets. You may need a different bottom bracket or an adapter to fit your frame, see your local bike shop for help determining which bottom bracket you would need for your frame. SRAM and Quarq BB30 cranks will only fit on BB30/PF30 frames. If you are replacing a Shimano or SRAM GXP crank on one of these frames, you may need a different bottom bracket. See your local bike shop for guidance. The SRM Rotor Cranks come in a 3D and 3D+ option. The 3D crank has a 24mm spindle that is compatible with BB90 and traditional bottom bracket shells. The 3D+ version sports an oversized 30mm spindle that is compatible with BB30/PF30 and BBRight bottom bracket styles. If you are not sure what type of bottom bracket style your bike has, contact your local bike shop or the manufacturer. Stages powermeters will fit most road bikes, mountain bike and TT bikes but some aero frames pose clearance issues with the chainstay. Check here to see if your bike is compatible.

WHAT CRANK-BASED POWERMETER WILL WORK WITH MY 11-SPEED SHIMANO DRIVETRAIN?

The SRM Shimano Dura Ace 9000 powermeter is your best choice for both mechanical & Di2 11-speed drivetrains. Since the 11-speed Shimano chainrings are the same width as the 10-speed rings, you can also use 10-speed Shimano-compatible cranks with mechanical drivetrains. The Stages Shimano Dura Ace 9000 powermeter is also a great choice for 11-speed Shimano drivetrains.

WILL THE POWERTAP G3 POWERMETER WILL WORK WITH MY 11-SPEED SHIMANO OR SRAM DRIVETRAIN?

Starting in 2013, all PowerTap G3 hubs and wheels come stock with the 11-speed compatible freehub body. These will fit all Shimano and SRAM drivetrains, from 9-11-speeds. If you have a Campagnolo drivetrain, order the Campy-compatible freehub option for 8-11-speed Capmy drivetrains.

CAN I USE MY CURRENT BIKE COMPUTER WITH MY NEW POWERMETER?

All of the powermeters we sell are ANT+ compatible and will work with any ANT+ bike computer designed to show power. Additionally, the Stages powermeters are compatible with Bluetooth Smart devices like the iPhone 5 & 4S.
