    Specialized Epic and Stages Power Meters

    I just bought a 2016 Specialized Epic Comp WC and it is currently being shipping to me. I want to pair a Stages power meter to it and have it here by the time the bike arrives, but I have two questions:

    1) Does the power meter have clearance on this frame? You can see how to check here if you are unfamiliar: https://support.stagescycling.com/en...s-power-meter-
    2) What is the size of the drive side spacer? It should be either 9mm or 15.5mm thick.

    Thanks a ton!

    Specialized Epic and Stages Power Meters

    Mine is 15 mm. I recently replaced crank with Quarq so I measured with calipers. I have 2015 Epic Expert Carbon WC.

    I could not fit that Allen key in between crank and chainstay so I just ended up getting a Quarq.

    Thanks a ton for the info! Another question, which Quarq did you get? I checked their website and it looks like the only two models they list are for SRAM Eagle.

    Eagle BB30 (the non-boost version).

    Seems to work fine on my 1x11 setup.

    It's a 9mm spacer if you have the all alloy rear triangle. I have a '14 Epic Carbon Comp with a Stages BB30 Carbon and it's the spindle option C.
