Have a look at this...

http://www.argon18bike.com/bikes/road/n ... 015.html?f

Zoom in on the groupset.

Is this a sneak preview of the shape of Dura Ace Di2 in 2015, or is this a photoshopping experiment?

That is a computer rendering, NOT an actual photo. :smartass:

Chances are, the artist took a fair bit of liberties with the modeling for the parts. Hence, the different look from the actual parts. :noidea:

nearly certain that is due to rendering - all the complex curves have been removed in favor of planar surfaces - easier to render.

Lol, More attention is being paid to the photoshopped Groupset than the frame :)

There is no way that they could have made the FD that small, plus the timing doesn't really make sense. Must be rendering shortcuts. Or they just wanted people to look at their bikes.

As much as it is a sneak preview of the new Dura Ace C50's and how they are anodizing the spokes black towards the center :)

Anyone updated their firmware already? and any experiences with the DI2-Garmin combination?

It's kind of a theoretical concept just now. I updated the EWW firmware, but until Garmin or others update their firmware to accomodate it, the switches do nothing.

You can search on experiences with the Di2 gear display on the Edge 1000. I find it usefull. It works fine. The presence of the EWW trransmitter decreases di2 battery life a bit, but its still manageable.

There is a third party website that will analyze the gear changes from your Garmin file, if you want to geek out on data.
