OP is an enthusiast and likely is sitting back and enjoying. I expect he has, or will have a PM.
Lots of us that see no need for a PM have them. I have 5 or 6. Because I want to. I also don't race. I have immense sprint power. I know I do because my PM tells me.
It also tells me my power is going down, so I'm sure that, in part is why I dislike them. I can count my push-ups and they are going down too, and my weight is going up. So there is that.
But if you want to get faster, you do not need a PM. If you want to measure your power, they are great.
