The shifter buttons in the aero extensions look interesting...good idea for single ring setup.

Looks fast, really want to see it with the Lightweight disc. A bit strange seeing Shimano Di2 and Campag together...

Those shifters look brilliant. Prob lighter and more aero than the originals. I guess you will not be taking on any Norwegian mountains with a single chainring?! Would love to do something similar for mine but need to keep double chainrings for Norseman.
Looks like you tuned your bolts. What did you go for and did it save much weight?

Hi Lan
Great looking bike and :thumbup: for the DI2 project.
I could be great to know how you did it. What parts you used and so on. Maybe you can share that with us?

LAN, you should probably run a front derailleur as a chain guide to avoid this situation:

Or just a chain guide up front ;) You can get them in carbon so they even look stylish :mrgreen:

Sorry for the BIG delay, but I just took some new photos.

I didn't get the LW disc afterall, because the price difference compared to Zipp Super 9.

It's almost complete now, still missing the Beyond Black decals on the disc, I got it with white decals.

Small 400mah battery is hidden inside the stem, and the wiring is homemade, but I have used the front wiring/control box.

Lan

You mention you thought about using a THM or AX crankset. How could they be made to work on a BB90 shell?

By using a bearing that is 37mm x 30mm x 4mm (think it is called 6706)

I am not 100% sure it will work, and the bearings are much weaker. (that would be ok for a tt bike, but not a bike used everyday)
