wow, this is cool.

What cassette do you use?
A light bike does replace good fitness.

Sweet silver ghost!

I'm impressed that you built this yourself and had the imagination to use a classic ti warhorse rather than any of the anonymous-but-chic (for now) carbon hardtails flooding the market.

In a C'dale Flash29, this wouldn't be nearly as striking, more like a generic Interbike stunt. But the way you blended the DIY-Di2 XTR and a full grayscale palette from silver to flat black makes this one of my all-time favorites on WW!

The only thing I would consider doing differently is swapping the black Thomson cockpit parts for the polished alu versions, thus permitting you to fashionably rock their upcoming ti flatbar when it finally drops... :thumbup:

i have used the dura ace 28 tooth cassette. It rides without a flaw, i have tried to get the gears miss a beat and they just go on and on.

thanks andy

A friend of mine ordered a Acecosportgroup Di2 solution for MTB on his bike (Ki2)! He purchased it directly from the distributor in the Netherlands. This company is relative new in business and make you nice deals. Your solution is also very nicely done. Can try to ask for a group discount for WW.....

Very nice. I would love to go electronic on my next build. I think I would do something different with the shifters though.

The shifters are the hardest part, which I suppose was shimano plan until they make the mtb di2. I knew ki2 made some but I did not know they were for sale. I am going to order some shifters off them.

Thanks andy

Ok so now I am seriously wanting this setup. Maybe next season, should be a shifter option or two by then. A DIY shifter is sort of out of the question for me since I know less than zero about electronics.

Very very nice.
Do you have any idea on the bikes weight?

Due to the fact that it is ti, it came in at a sensible 20.9 which to me is 21lb. I did not want to put di2 on my flash because that has been done, but now that i have rode this I am looking at di2 on all my bikes.

thanks andy
