Can I use a Stages Campagnolo Record left crank with my Campagnolo veloce crankset, if the sizes are a match?

Want a power meter of some sorts and it would be far cheaper than getting vectors.

    What about a one-sided Vector? You can still upgrade later and transfer between bikes. The Stages website specifies that the Chorus (!) version is compatible with Chorus and Record-11s. stagescycling.eu/stages-power/campagnolo-chorus.html – Carel Jul 2 at 14:01

    Powertap P2s are another option. Too bad you weren't looking a few months ago - Powertap was dumping their C1 crankset powermeters cheap after they got bought out by SRAM. – Andrew Henle Jul 2 at 15:18
  • @AndrewHenle The C1 is technically a chainring powermeter rather than crankset. And if they are dumping stock that would make me worry about availability of replacement chainrings in the future – Andy P Jul 3 at 9:54
  • @AndyP All true, but they were dumping them for $350, which seems to be about the same as SRM charges me to replace the battery and service my SRM crankset every 4-5 years. I love that SRM (except that's it's FSA-based) and want a new one, but not for $2500. The bad reviews on the C1 were almost all leaking battery seal and short battery life and most likely user problems - not seating the seal after replacing the battery and using cheap years-old CR2032s off the internet. Add in the cost of a decent crankset, and the C1 was L/R power for just $400+. (L/R power is a pretty decent estimate) – Andrew Henle Jul 3 at 12:12

No.

The Veloce crankset (assuming it's a 2011+ version) uses Campy's Power Torque system to attach the left crank arm.

The Centaur crankarm offered by Stages uses Campy's Ultra Torque design, as do all of the Campy crankarms Stages offers.

They are completely different.
