After much travelling of the country my di2 is here and all the parts are ready to go on just waiting for satalite shifters.

i am scared of this build due to the fact that each peice was so expensive, i mean the front mech was 468 pound alone, but it will be all worth it once the build is finished, more to follow...

thanks andy


Andy - sorry to pull you up on your typing but you just mentioned you spent £468 on the front mech......



:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:


i know i was shocked when i saw the price of it, the rear mech is £499 yes £499.00 and dont even think about how much the cables cost.

its all very wrong. thanks andy

Dude I have a spectrum 48k with rubber keys. You can use it as a saddle. For you, given your tight budget I'll let you have it for £4,962.

PP gift please
