Ultegra Di2 discs.

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

For sure. I couldn't wait another year. I bought a Di2 Super X this April. The new stuff will be amazing. It's lighter even with the added gear, you can use a 32 cog, Shimano know how to make discs... game changer right there.

Does anyone know of bikes that will be sold with hydraulic Ultegra Di2? Maybe it's a bit early to say so?

Pretty sure this stuff isn't available till late nov or maybe later. More than likely you won't see any bikes being spec'd with it till next years release as this is too late. I would imagine it will be out and about on some pro bikes beforehand (mostly US domestic). It's definitely a game changer.

Ultegra di2 isn't going to be shipping on completes until November December from what I was told this week. Aftermarket availability is usually after oem so that misses cross season almost entirely.

What frame did you put it on?

How did you do the cable/hose routing?

How'd you get e-tube shifters to work with 7970?
