Here's part 2 to Kevin E.'s great write-up on power meters. This entry give you some great models to investigate.
If you have any questions, you can certainly give me a shout at:
Like I wrote, with experience using power since 2009, I feel very comfortable with the subject and can help you out, or direct you to where you can get further assistance.
But remember, a power meter without a training plan and hard work is just a fancy upgrade that costs a fair bit of dough.

You Have the Power, Part II

Unsure about power meters? What are they? Do you need one?
Here's a link to a great two-part blog entry by Cycle Craft employee and BJL Coaching Athlete Kevin E.:
You Have The Power!
I have been using and coaching with power meters since 2009, so please feel free to shoot me any questions you have. If you really want to make the best use of your power meter and all the data that it can provide, you should seriously consider hiring a cycling coach. Let us do the work for you, so you can focus on your training and all the other aspects of your life. A power meter alone won't make you faster, stronger, fitter, or more attractive. However, with proper guidance and structured plan, I can help you with the first three. More attractive? Sure...why not? : )
The BJL Coaching / Cycle Craft Winter Trainer Sessions started of with a bang! We had record attendance, with a bunch of new faces along with the usual suspects in the crowd. It was a pleasure working with these dedicated athletes, and I'm excited to watch everyone progress.
The drills for the night included one legged pedaling, high cadence work, "climbing", and some muscle tensioning intervals. Next week we'll build upon this workout as we slowly increase the intensity over the ten weeks to create long lasting fitness.
I also introduced the BJL Coaching Odd Number Challenge:
Attend 5, 7, or 9 classes to be entered into a raffle. Why not 10? Who's perfect? ; )
Two winners will receive one free month of custom coaching with BJL Coaching and a free Lactate Threshold Field Test. One prize per person. The threshold test will be scheduled by the end of April with the free month to follow the test.
With nine classes left, literally everyone is still eligible to earn 3 entries into the raffle. And, more importantly than that, attend the rest of the classes and you'll hit the "warm" weather with a solid foundation. But remember, even if you can't attend all the classes, every class you do make will be beneficial for your cycling and fitness goals.

Thanks again to all who attended for a great first class!
