The cadence method seems a bit murky (From the tech document - Proprietary process for accurate cadence measurement, which does not use magnets or accelerometers in order to achieve accuracy and save battery usage ) and the <2sec startup time could turn off a true sprinter... otherwise it looks solid. The crank length options, especially 155 and 160 is appealing.

Thanks Mate,
I had been speaking with them the other day and this is what the salesman told me regarding cadence

"An accelerometer is not how the InfoCrank registers cadence, it works from Torque impulses. It is not necessary but you can choose to use the magnets."
