Thanks for confirming!
This is the 11 speed link that says 'Campagnolo 11 speed only', right?

Anyone has a complete manual for the DI2 11spd build up?


Thanks for the feedback guys.
Have you checked Shimano USA 'tech docs' for the DI2 manual?

No idea, never used the KMC links.............can you guys confirm?


@ member; "thisisatest", you were looking into the BEST product to use as a quick link. Did you reach a conclusion?

KMC never got back to me about DA9k compatibility. So I'm taking a wait-and-see approach.

I'm advised late Jan/early Feb for bikes fitted with the groupset. Loose product maybe later?

Sorry meant to quote the 9070 Di2 question, which it is. Someone is also paying them top $ to strip a Giant and put 9070 on his Venge this weekend.

Are they definitely the TCR Advanced SL0 with 11spd Dura Ace Di2 (black frame/blue highlights)?? :noidea:
If so, that's potentially good news for me...... :wink:

EDIT 15/01/13: Talked to the shop concerned today and they are not Giant production TCR Advanced SL0's (they're built from parts by the shop) therefore my news is bad... :cry:
Seems shops are getting 9070 groupsets/parts arriving though, so those waiting for them may be in luck.

Just off a Guerciotti with 9000.

Holy cow, it is nice!


Never thought I would say that about Shimano...


Now, to test a Campag 11 wheel in it. Then the Mavic wheel on my Campag bike :D

I have heard repeatedly that the 9070 RD and FD are less bulky than their 7970 predecessors due to smaller motors, but I have never seen them compared.

Does anyone have any pics of them side by side so that size difference can be seen?
