nice project .

a few companies now do the shifters ready to go .

and a lot of riders use the Di2 in cyclo cross , so no worries about mud and water .

The mud and water is not an issue its the gearing due to the fact that it is a28 block and the double XTR

THANKS ANDY

Me....? Silly....?
Pot, black kettle, calling, etc... :lol:
Sorry, I wasn't aware that such gadgets were intended for offroad use.
Aside from Bradley Wiggin's electrickery failing a couple of years back, it's the first I've heard of such nonsense.
Whatever next? :roll:

So you missed the whole Suntour (Browning) of the turn of the 90's then ?

That was electronic for MTB's (and tried automatic for none offroad bikes)


BEAST was front only and a different concept, they did eventually do rear (but not under Suntour) and cost of the system probably helped it fail.

So much, It probably helped Suntour's money go down the pan more than it was and cause great problems for their livelyhood.

Too expensive.

Who'd put a £500 mech on an MTB and let rocks and mechs slam on the ground.
