So Chain Reaction had a sale on the XTR Di2 rear derailleur....hope the wife doesn't find out. I decided to try it on my Broke Boone and the rear wheel from my cross bike that already had the 10-42 cassette on it. Bolted on and works great. I am using the SW-60 climbing switch on a set of TRP Hylex hydraulic brakes, even multi-shift works. The whole setup will probably get me assaulted by Shimano engineers, but it works great on a CX/Road dual use bike. I like the large range of the 10-42 cassette, but maybe the smaller jumps of the 11-40 at the smaller gears would be a little easier. I had a 38 narrow wide chainring on the front, which was way too small...the other bike has a 46 CX1 chainring.

A video of the shifting is at vimeo, 127227221, the forum won't let me post the link.

Very cool. How do you like the DT Swiss wheels? Are the logos on stickers and can they be removed or under clearcoat? Do they weigh as advertised?

Many thanks

I was thinking of doing this with my (unbroken) Boone too. thinking of mixing Ultegra di2 levers, Red/CX1 cranket, XTR rear mech. I have Hope road hubs which I'm told (by Hope) take an xd freehub

The graphics are under a clear coat. I like them, they might have been a little over advertised weight, but not egregious. They are very comfortable with 25c tubeless tires, maybe a little less stiff than other wheels I've owned.

You can run one of the climber shifters directly into the 3-port, 5-port or XTR front junction for shifters. I've also used a set of ST-6770 shifters after I updated them with the Shimano program.

Cool thanks, shame about the graphics really

Hi guys,

I am Di2 curious and was wondering if you could help? Not strictly CX but it fits within the thread hopefully.

I have a Hongfu 256-SL MTB frame with internal brake and shift housings and a BB access port...

What I am thinking of doing is going to XTR Di2 with an XX1 cassette (all good so far) but I am not sure how easy it will be to route the cables or what mixing and matching I can get away with on the shifters and junctions boxes. Basically, I don't like the look of the XTR shifter and I have no desire to have an extra display next to my Garmin.

I'm thinking:

Right side only climbing shifter -> single cable through gear cable port and in frame -> normal junction A box hidden inside the frame near the BB (perhaps us the cable guide bolt holes to attach a small bracket if needed) -> Battery in seattube (there seems to be a hole from the seattube to BB) -> cable from the Junction A box to the RD via the chainstay.

Does that sound do-able? Would the climbing shifter mounted under the bar as with Ki2 be pure misery on the MTB?

Thanks in advance!

DanW

What size are the XTR Di2 connectors? There are mentions of Dura-Ace and Ultegra width connectors but what cables does XTR require? Would it fit through a normal cable hole if I drilled it out to 4-5mm diameter (as you would for full length gear outers for example)?

How is the compatibility of the climbing shifters and normal Junction A box with the XTR Di2 rear mech? Does anything jump out in my proposed setup that wouldn't work?

I don't think you can ditch the XTR display junction box if you want to run multiple shifters and sequential gear shifts but I think that is the only instance you need the XTR display, correct???
