What size frame is it? You have quite a stack of spacers there.

Mate, please make sure to check the topic title :thumbup: A stack of spacers you say? slamyourstem.com is another website :wink:

I like the look of the BH, you don't see them around that often.

I have a similar build as yours. I do have a couple of questions though.

How did you route the Di2 wiring through the BB shell? Is the cable able to come into contact with the crank spindle? I routed mine via the mechanical cable guides.

Also, the rubber grommets that came with the frame are meant for e-tube wiring. What type of grommets are you using instead?

Thanks.

My english is not perfect, but I will try....:)
Di2 wiring is completely inside the frameset - but the hole under BB area is little bit bigger (about 1cm bigger) - just to get it inside. No contact with crank spindle - because of plastic roller. The biggest problem was cable from RD. The holes inside the chainstays are little bit smaller than end of the cable. I cut it (probably 2mm were enough) :)
Grommets are original from BH.

Btw. I am going to rebuild it with DA 9070 and this DA electronic kit is for sale :)

Nice bike. And a handy bag under the saddle to carry your box of fags (UK slang for cigarettes).

No worries..ur english is perfectly fine and thank you for the explanation. Yes, all the wiring is inside the frame. What i did first was to run the cables inside the BB shell itself. As I was worried that the cables will come into contact with the crank spindle, I decided to run the cables like you did, through that gap underneath the BB shell itself. The routing however is actually meant for mechanical groupsets. Still not happy, managed to find a BB386 to shimano converter from Hope that has a cone in between the bearing cups. The BB cups that came with my frame didnt have the cone.

I think the original grommets are meant for the newer Di2 that uses Etube. It wasnt easy to fit them and I had to resort to melting them slightly so that they would fit perfectly.

The latest 9070 DA would be perfect...but it will burn a super duper big hole in my pocket :p

'Slang for cigarette'- what is this. i am not familiar with this word. I hope it has metaphorical meaning. Hope you will elaborate this.
