Where to buy power meters USA

There are many, many options for power meters. The cheapest tend to be ones that simply replace the non-driveside arm of your current crankset. Alternatively, you can have the whole crankset replaced and benefit from the increased accuracy of having your left and right legs measured independently. 

Power meter pedals are generally more expensive than power meter cranks but on the other hand, they do provide you the option of easily swapping your power meter between bikes. 

Like with cranks, you can save a bit of money by buying a set of pedals where only the left side reads power. All the brands listed here provide the option to upgrade the right side pedal to a power meter version, should you want dual reading down the line

If you're after dual sided readings on just one bike, a power meter crankset can be the most cost effective option – especially if you're thinking of changing your crank length or chainring sizes at the same time. 

Just bear in mind that the PowerBox's spindle is 30mm, so if you're currently running Shimano cranks you'll need to factor in the cost of a new bottom bracket. Also, so access the dual sided functionality, you'll need to pay FSA a surcharge, otherwise it'll just give single sided readings.
