    I've seen a handful of mentions of these in the forum, and they seem to have good prices. I'm in the market for a power meter and they're a fraction cheaper than Mantel. I can't figure out if they're an Irish company, or a front for an Italian operation (that just sounds wrong but I'll let it stand!), but I'm wondering if it's a case of the prices being too good to be true as there's not a lot of mention of them. If they're Irish, I'd prefer to support a local company

    Anybody got experience of them, good, bad, or indifferent?

    He is an Italian cyclist living in Ireland. Totally reputable. I've given him plenty of business for years.

    While I haven't used the shop, he's definitely based in Ireland. Does coaching, trips and clothing as well as the shop!

    I bought my powermeter from him, reasonable price, a local racer and was here in a few days without hassle. Highly recommended.

    I bought my Assioma PM from Matteo. Arrived promptly and hassle free. Great service and nice to give business to someone so involved in the cycling community here.
