Preliminary build list..

2013 BMC Teammachine SLR01 Di2 frameset, 57 - bought unused in a very pleasant deal off this forum! :-)
Selle Italia Kit Carbonio Flow saddle
DA7900 brakes (or move the DA9000 brakes from my Ultimate AL?)
DA7900 crankset
PRO Vibe S7 130mm -10 degree stem
Shimano brake wires
Shimano 6870 Ultegra Di2 groupset with internal battery
Ritchey Evocurve aluminium bars
Shimano DA9000 C24 CL wheelset (managed to get a new set at around 500 usd, which is pretty nice for Norway)
Specialized Phat bartape
Bottle cages; undecided, something clean and on the budget side, maybe.

That's what I know so far, building the bike these days :)
Feel free to make suggestions on components to use or not to use.

I decided to go with the internal battery as that is much cleaner than the under down tube position. However the seatpost on this frameset isn't adapted for that, and I decided to cover the battery in foam and then "screw" the battery into the post. I fixed the foam with some duct tape, then rolled it around the entire battery, finished off the ends with some duct tape to facilitate an easier entry into the post and frame, preventing the foam from being snagged on some rough carbon pieces inside the post.

I tried pulling out the battery to see how well it was sticking. The battery came out with a loud pop and required quite a lot of pulling. Now I just hope that the foam will not compress much over time, but I don't think it will. At the current state of friction other parts of the bike will go before this battery down into the seat tube, even if wet.

Fitting the Di2 wires was pretty straight forward and not more difficult than regular wires. Despite having had three bikes with Di2 this was my first time threading the wires through the frame holes. I used a couple of old brake wires and then attached the cable heads with duct tape to the wire, and pulled it back and through the frame openings. Now planning to zip tie the Di2 junction box to the underside of the Barfly 2.0, so that I can settle with slightly shorter cables on the bars and keep the stem clutter free.
