Hey guys,

Does anyone know if you can run standard mechanical (shimano) through a di2 specific frame. i know it says Di2 specific but can it be done? i have heard of a conversion kit but cant find it anywhere on the internet. can you help me?

specifically referencing theFELT 2011 F1 FRAME

Maybe superDave could help me on this.
thanks

The problem is you will not have appropriate entry points for the cable housing to route.
It's easier to make a mechanical frame di2 compatible by either drilling or using external cable kit with the cable specific tape rather than making a di2 frame mechanical.
Good luck.

Might be possible if the same frame/ layup has a mechanical sibling. Get us some close ups of the cable stop area where the electronics enter, and also a production photo of the same area on a mechanical one, that way the peanut gallery actually has something to argue about

I was considering purchasing a storck fenomalist di2 specific and putting mechanical group on but I decided against it but I will be keeping my eye on this thread

simple, easy, ugly solution is full length housing, but I don't recommend it.

I just removed the cable guides from my Tarmac so I could run my EPS. Let me know if you want them. They were riveted and seemed that would be easy to do.

Yes, you can bolt on mechanical cable guides to the 2011 F1 frame. We equipped the F1 with SRAM RED for some distributors. Your frame came with the guides and your Felt dealer can source additional items. They are also used on our CX bikes.
