Colnago puts it under the down tube right in front of the BB on the C59. Trek has a messy world record on the new Madone.

I have read that Campagnolo has a seat post mounting standard coming. I just wonder where the charge and diagnostics ports will go. Maybe they'll put it all inside a Campagnolo post. That could be elegant.


That's great news about the seatpost mount -- assuming internal. Was there a target launch date?

I think it was Italian Cycling Journal that put up a drawing and some words about it. That's all I know.

Maybe that's where they are hiding it in the BMC Lamborghini bike?

Doubt it, as Impec has external mount for the Di2 version as can be seen here

Hmmm... but the yellow one clearly has SR EPS yet no visible "brain-battery box" :? Which is on the BB of their "normal" impec.

If you look at the second pic you can see the battery mounted on the bottom of the BB shell.

There is unlikely to be a special battery sorted out for a small company like BMC, when the likes of Pinarello, who have been in the process from day one, are still using the regular external battery. Even Colnago & De Rosa have to make do with the regular battery. Why would BMC's collabaration with VW sway them?

Apparently De Rosa doesn't have to put up with it:

Image

From derosanews.com:
888 Superking

The top of the range of De Rosa is enriched by a new set of frames: the 888 SuperKing. The Series 888 is formed by superking models "R", "SR" and "E". In particular, the models "E" has been designed with the aim of integrating the battery to the chassis Eps, battery that moves with electronic products by Campagnolo. The ‘SuperKing 888 "E" is the result of collaboration between our designers and engineers from Campagnolo. This union has made that was born the first frame in the world devoted to Campagnolo Eps battery completely hidden inside the frame, and rechargeable via a "plug" into the frame itself. Models "R" and "SR" are dedicated to all those who choose mechanical assemblies. The series 888 superking is characterized by a "blend" of 3 different types of composite fibers MR-60 (295 GPA/5800MPA), HR-40 (390GPA/4610MPA) and NGF's 630GPA. Addition of structural reinforcements were added at the points of greatest stress using a "complex" of high modulus fibers. The structure of the frame is certainly refined and advanced, intended to provide a low overall weight, high rigidity, but with a better absorption to vibration. The 888 series is the world's first SuperKing characterized by this component of the vibration damping, unique and harmonious distributed uniformly on the structure of the rear seat tube and fork. Proposal with regular geometry, and in 8 sizes.

The battery is fitted inside, true. But it is only by virtue of a design from scratch. BMC's Impec is an existing design that is unlikely to be adaptable to allow this. If it was why are they not making a point about it? Surely it would be a selling point to jusyify the €20000 price tag. Otherwise it's a big ask for some paint & hide!

The obvious explanation is that they removed it for the photo

rhyslewisdavies is apparently referring to this:

In Next Gen Campagnolo Record EPS on January 8(7), rhyslewisdavies wrote:
At least they are looking to sort it so its just a waiting game now - sent them an email asking when a hidden battery would be released and got this reply:

Dear Mr. Rhys,

of the record, we are working on about this solution, with the power unit placed inside the down tube or inside the seat post. At the moment, I’m not able to give a date of released of this new product but hopefully as soon as possible.

Cordiali Saluti/ Best Regards
