Nimble PowerTap Options

PowerTap SL hub

Any Wire Wheel.  Nimble can build any wire spoke FLY or Spider wheel with a PowerTap hub option. We build 700C and 650C in all our spoke configurations (24, 28 and 32) to custom fit your individual riding.  We built wheels for the original studies proving their unique value, and have built and sold versions of power sensing wheels since 1997.  For configurations see Rider/wheel weight limits .  If you have any questions or wish to order Contact Us.

Any Way you Want.  We sell separate PowerTap hubs, complete PowerTap systems, wheels built with PowerTap hubs, wheels built with complete PowerTap systems.  We also sell parts.  We stock many of the parts and offer immediate availability most parts.  We also offer 1 or 2 day build times on custom wheel.  If you are in a rush

Set-up advice.  We recommend removing any other transmitters from your cycle set-up.  In particular, if you have a wireless computer, remove the battery to avoid signal conflict with the PowerTap transmitters.  If you have difficulty setting up your system, you can contact us or speak directly to CycleOps customer service, the manufacturer of PowerTap (800-783-7257).  If you have any service or part issues, please keep us informed so we can support other riders making wheel configuration choices.
