Site meter not updating
This past summer at Eurobike, Quarq announced their latest generation of power meters, the DZero lineup.The aim of this line was to refresh the existing offerings, while also somewhat simplifying things.Most visible to consumers though was the addition of Bluetooth Smart transmission, making for dual ANT /Bluetooth Smart capabilities.Alongside that was an updated multi-color LED for status clarity.Behind the scenes, the company tweaked the strain gauge design to increase accuracy levels.Finally, the company also added support for Boost 148 and BB386 EVO bottom bracket compatibility. I’ve been riding a DZero loaner unit that Quarq sent to try since December.
With that – let’s dig into what’s in the box and then get it setup on the bike.The exact configuration of your Quarq DZero box will vary based on what exactly you ordered.In my case, the loaner unit I got came with chainrings pre-installed, minimizing the amount of work involved in setup. Though realistically installing chainrings is just a couple minute task at worst, it takes only a hex wrench.As noted, my unit came with the chainrings pre-installed, but they also included some extra chainrings for craps and giggles.
Further, they included a bottom bracket adapter, simply because the bike I was installing it on didn’t match the bottom bracket of the unit.Otherwise, inside the box, you’ll find a small packet of papers that serves as a guide and warranty cards.And then, of course, you’ll find both the drive-side (with chainrings) and non-drive side crank arms situated.And a closer look at the informational pieces of former trees: If you take a peek at the piece of paper rubber-banded to your crank arm, it’ll show the test information from the factory calibration test pass.
