    what did you want to know? they'll be just under double the price of a standard. no doubt i'll be selling them at the best price possible, like i do with the other PTs

    but it's like anything -- especially computers -- there will always be something better around the corner. either way the PT Pro is a great meter.

    lighter hub - carbon and aluminium
    campy, shimano and fixed wheel options
    the "guts" of the unit located further into the hub and inaccesible

    may be other stuff but can't recall

    Those bastards. That would solve my two primary beefs -- it's heavy as a brick, and I had to mess w/ adapting the spacing of the cassette to match my Campy 10sp shifters (which cost $130). I hope it at least works with the old harness and computer so I can buy the new hub and stuff it into another lighter wheel.

    just to point out, that while the PT is heavier (about 150 g over a "normal" hub) that isn't going to make much difference (if any)

    Oh, I know. I like to bitch now and then like the weight weenies do. Actually, I think it's more like 200g over an Ultegra hub, but no matter. It's not much more difference than a 1/4 bottle of water on board.
