USAC has a boner for training with power.
I believe a powermeter is a useful tool for training, not the be all end all, but a very useful tool.
I wouldn't mind having one.
Instead I have a pretty fork
(for the moment)
jewel like cranks.
Not only that, the cranks are fastened to the bike with archaic twentieth century technology. Probably nineteenth, but we'll give it the benefit of the doubt being all cold war mystery metal.
They even fail the weight weenies manifesto of a dollar a gram coming in at about $20 to the gram saved.
They won't make me faster, and any improvement in ride or handling is minute.
Maybe even pure placebo effect.
But damn are they pretty!
