How do you get the most premium, high-performance mountain bike powermeter possible? SRM USA suggests it’s their latest PM9 direct mount spider power meter paired with a titanium Cane Creek eeWings MTB crankset. Light, stiff, and benchmark accuracy. What more could you want? Hopefully, your budget is pretty big, though…

Add a SRM powermeter to Cane Creek eeWings MTB cranks

SRM sent us an email announcing a new “Cane Creek and SRM partnership” to pair the lightest and stiffest titanium crankset on the market, with the most trusted & most accurate power meter out there. Sure, you could mount a Power2Max spider to your eeWings, too.

But is anyone buying a titanium crankset and a power meter spider really looking to save just a few bucks? You might as well splurge and get the 9th-generation SRAM PM9 powermeter, which is pretty much considered the industry benchmark, right?

How much will it cost you?

Buyers in the US can pick up a complete setup from SRM for just $2100, or $2175 with a chainring included, and a delivery lead-time of 4-5 weeks.

Wow, only twenty-one hundred dollars you say?

If you had to buy them separately, that would be $1100 direct from Cane Creek for just the 400g eeWings ti MTB crankarms & axle, plus another $1300 for the compatible SRAM 3-bolt direct mount PM9 spider on its own. Or $2400 without a chainring or bottom bracket. That’s what buyers outside of the US will have to do anyway.

Want more Cane Creek bling for your classic road bike, too?

OK, so these sold out in minutes when they debuted at the end of August. But Cane Creek says you may still be able to find a set if your local bike shop snapped them up. Cane Creek standard mount road eeBrakes are always sought after for classic rim brake builds. And the limited editions are always a rare treat. These patriotic beauties would have set you back $780 for the pair.

Maybe, you’ll still find a pair if you dig deep enough? But maybe it’ll cost you even more. Still cheaper than an SRM powermeter, though.

i think this is a good way for both companies to sell their SRAM 3-bolt products, or keep them relevant. It’s a pity SRAM changed this whole thing to 8 bolt..

not sure if they’ll sell a lot.. very niche

SRM is the benchmark to this day for powermeter cranks. Lots of pros who train on srm’s they paid for though race on sponsor equipment. Expect to see SRM sell quite a few.

SRM test very poorly vs the latest from Favero / Sigeyi / Xcadey / Garmin / Power2Max. You’re paying an eye-watering price for worse accuracy.

i know… i have their PM8, which is great. my point was that they’re using that 3-bolt interface, which is discontinued by SRAM, which I think is stupid. this combo is very niche if you consider you can get a dozen alternatives for not even half the price ant more or less the same weight.

You think people will largely not but SRAM cranks? Any idea how many bikes will come with them from the manufacturer?

Had no idea SRM was still in business considering how obsolete their business is.

They’re still around. They even have power meter pedals in flat form‍

P2M doesn’t actually offer a power meter for the eeWings – remember the bolt pattern is rotated 180 degrees vs. a standard SRAM, so the SRAM P2M doesn’t fit due to clearance behind the crank arm.
