Anxiously awaiting for the update...cheers, mate.
Well what a day with Di **** 2. I am so thick i spent the day trying to drown it, get mud in the system and then i thought what on earth am i trying to do here, ITS A SEAL **** SYSTEM so how can anything get in. So i let the system be and thought lets see how accurate i could be at changing gears when going full bore through single track with roots and trees either side, well after an hour of this silliness i realised that if you press the button up twice then the rear mech will move twice and if i press the button down twice or even three times then the mech will move the same amount of times.
What i'm trying to say is that i was running around like a twat trying to get this thing to miss a beat, but it can't due to the simpleton mecanics of the system, if you press P on a keyboard then P will appear. The system is that simple, one press one movement. I never even got the satifaction of Mud Clog in the cassette due to the fact that there is no space for mud.
Another twatie thing that happened to me is that shimano say you cant use more than a 27 tooth block with the dura ace mech, well i have just put a xtr 34 tooth on and the rear mech did not like it, but it liked a 32 once i set the screw so the jockey wheel did not hit the 32 tooth. I do know that if i ran this system with the 34 tooth it would wear out in a week and if i run the 32 tooth it will still wear out quite quickly.
So after much thought i am now going to use the dura ace 28 tooth or a 30 tooth cassette
I dont know what i have acheived with all that ranting, but i can assure all and sundry that di2 works on a mountain bike out in the hills, mud, rain, grit, sand, clay, or in your mamma's back yard, but i don't think my Garmin now works, and how do you clean this darn bike.
