Hi solarider,

Can you confirm old DTI will work with V2 battery, just losing diagnostics? May make the upgrade less bitter to swallow for me. Would do it in two steps then... :-)

Thanks!

Confirmed. Works absolutely perfectly. Been running it for 4 months now.

I have a newer V2 complete group set on one of the bikes, and I can't notice any difference whatsoever.

Thanks Solarider,

as you seem to know your way around EPS please allow me one more question.

Did my first ride today on the system. After 20km it was over. Something malfunctioned with front derailleur (which until then was working flawlessly). It dropped into closest position to frame and wouldn't move from there. Motor seemed to get quite warm for a few minutes. Would not react to inputs. When going into adjustment mode (purple light) I could move the derailleur up to the big chainring and back. On first shift it would return straight back to lowest position.

At home I now zeroed it again and re-taught positions and it seems to be working now again.

Any idea where this problem can come from?

Thanks!

Contrary to the possible implication in the post by Solarider, not *all* versions of the Interface will work correctly with the v2 PU.

Some of the very early Interfaces (DTI) don't work correctly with v2 firmware.

The reverse is also true - some IF14 (the current version) Interfaces will not work correctly with older v1 PUs.

There are some firmware differences that end-users won't necessarily see or be aware of between v1 produced in the first commercial releases and later releases, and in v2. Whilst in general the firmware degrades gracefully and combinations will work as well as the oldest component in the system, there are a very limited number of exceptions.

We recommend that queries are forwarded to the Service Centre in your market for completely authoritative comment / advice - EPS components are expensive and obviously Campagnolo would prefer that they were not bought and then found to be be problematic in combination with other parts!

If you can send us the serial numbers of the PU and the Interface we can check this for you. Also helpful would be the information on the white tags that are attached to the Interface cable on the PU.

Go with Graeme's advice.

Armchair internet 'experts' like me are no replacement for proper experts like Graeme. I might have just been lucky, but mine works perfectly, and it was one of the first production versions of EPS.

I think it is a shame that Shimano Di2 is marketed as being appropriate for the home mechanic when Campagnolo insist on the professional route. In many ways EPS is simpler than mechanical shifting to work on, but I guess it is still in its very early stages relatively speaking and Campagnolo want to track user problems and build fixes into later releases and they can't do that if their certified mechanics never see the faults themselves.

Looks like a nice weight savings with Chorus over Ultegra 6800 and for not a whole heck of a lot more money.

Elsewhere I was told to expect that 2015 groupset prices would be similar to 2014. Which on my favorite retailers site are:

SR $1833
R $1122
Ch $1045
DA $1344
Ult $665
