Hi guys, I have a 25.4mm Darimo seatpost for my 2016 Supersix, what is the best way to securely mount my Di2 battery in this seatpost please? Cable tie around bubble wrap squashed in?

I just wrapped the battery in a couple of dense foam rings and plugged it into the seatpost.

I use https://eu.ritcheylogic.com/eu_en/bike/ ... bber-mount
Cost 6€ and works (to be complete I only insert it 2cm, then friction is too high so I could trim it cutting half).

What torque do you guys run with the T1 loop? I recently got the seatpost for my R5 and at 3nm it came loose after a few rides.

Yeah, 3Nm but I used a drop of loctite 242 on both screws.

Finally decided to purchase darimo products.
Just received my ellipse handlebar however I've got this nick / indentation. Totally unexpected for a premium product.
Darimo told me it's safe to ride.
What are your thoughts guys?

It's probably as he says, question is if you accept a new bar with this? I wouldn't!

glossy ud finish of darimo products has its quirks unfortunately - mine have simillar inperfections but i live with that as it is a penalty that you pay for the low weight. It is still better that a flaky glossy coat on thm clavicula se that started to fall off after approx 1kkm. For me it is a lesson learned if you want lowest weight carbon parts - go for a matte ones ;-)

If the bar tape covers the imperfection i wouldn't worry about it, but if not i would send them back as it would drive me mad looking at it every time I went for a ride.

Well spotted! Weight still matters... need something to offset the added weigh of the SRM crankset and disc brakes
