I think with the diameter of the RCA seat tube, there won't be enough room to run the charging cable alongside the battery pack. Since the BuraSL uses a 27.2 seatpost as well, won't you have the same issue?


In fact, I realized the same thing after I posted. This will probably be a problem for the seat tube installation. I may have to install it in the down tube. I hope it can make through the head tube of my size Large frame.

I bought the frame, but I will only be able to received it around March/April. I'll ask Glory Cycles to check if the v2 battery is "installable" in the down tube before deciding on EPS or Di2 (my frame is electronic only), and ask them to ship the frame with the battery / wiring installed.

...or if you have a sealed bottom bracket, have room in the BB shell, and have a removable bottom cap -- you may be able to 'fasten' the charger cable in there via a small piece of velcro or something...just a thought.

I used one on a look 595 once. They are similar quality to wheels.
