If you buy a completed wheelset, installation is about as easy as it gets. All you need to do to is install the wheel in your bike and you’re good to go
ConsiderationsPowerTap hubs can be purchased as standalone hubs, or pre-built into a completed wheel set. If pre-built, installation is easy. If you buy a standalone hub, will need to have your local bike shop lace it into your existing wheel set – or you can do it yourself if you’re handy with wheels

Notes

(1) When considering weight, be sure to calculate the added weight of the power meter. For example, if a PowerTap hub weighs 320 grams, but the hub you are replacing weighs 250 grams, the net addition is 70 grams.
