Can you post another photo? Curious about how the bottom bracket area cable routing works. The link doesn’t work for me. Thanks!

Nice. Did you cover your bb area to prevent water from going in to your junction b?

Cool. Assume you need to remove the bottom bracket and stuff the junction box inside the down tube.

Nope, you don't have to remove the bb. For tarmac and venge vias, there is actually a cover to prevent water from splashing on. If you take a look at your allez disc, you will see the exact same hole. Just wondering how to cover it. Looks like I just have to use electrical tape to cover the left hole.

Nobody uses di2 for disc allez?
Are you blind?
Go back one page, my bike and many others are set up with di2 :roll:
I am asking how do they cover the bottom bracket area to prevent water from reaching the junction b, but seem that nobody reply.
I do not answer because i don't cover it. So i wait and see if anyone bother to cover that hole. I didn't see the need to, but seeing how you route i now should answer because i see that it matter to you but not on my set-up.

Both my Di2 cable and junction b go over the top of the bb itself, not underneath. Use bottom bracket that encapsulate things left to right (not just simple two bearings that leave spindle expose in the center). Example of this type of bb
I route every cable from everywhere to one side of bb hole first, then join them together with junction b in the seat tube on top of where bottom bracket casing will be inserted. Then insert the bb and viola, di2 stuff rest on top of bb and spindle hide inside the shell away from dirt.
Bottom hole is as exposed as regular cable groupset.

You could use some sort of clear cable frame protector sticker to cover it up? I used a small circle piece to cover the hole left when I remove the cables for a front derailleur after upgrading with di2.

Also, I love that "Splash" pattern frameset.

I see. Does the placing the junction b on top the bb cause more rattling? The way I route is following a tarmac routing. :)

It's matte white and gloss black.
There's one benefit with matte white, the welds are much less obvious :lol:
