    Hi

    I have found Stages Ultegra 6800 power meter on sale. I've almost decided that I'm going to get a Stages Power Meter, so any reason not to buy the meter now when it's on sale?

    I'm thinking about if there will be an updated model for the next season? The Ultegra arm of course stays the, but the "Stages stuff" might be updated.

    Hmmm. What updates could there be that would convince you to wait?

    Most power meter companies are pretty much wedded to a particular hardware approach so once they started down a path the only things they can change might be the price or the firmware. Maybe Stages will improve the door of the battery compartment, or maybe the way they bond to the crank, or maybe improve the BT transmission protocol -- or maybe lower their price -- but those are evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes. If you know much about the history of the other power meter companies, you'll see that "evolutionary, not revolutionary" applies to everyone, not just Stages.
