    There's a big thread about the powertap over in the XC racing forum. Biggest problem I see is expensive, proprietary rotors if you want to run disc brakes, heavy and tied to one rear wheel. Stages is likely cheaper, much lighter, with the drawback of measuring only left hand side force. I would go stages or crank spider based myself. I have stages XT on mtb and have used a powertap G3 for road/cross. I've found stages tech support much better than powertap as well. The first stages I had died quickly, took about 5 minutes on the phone with them to have a replacement sent which has been trouble free.
