Cannondale sells proprietary battery holder, part number K32180.
Thanks... but sold out everywhere in the UK !

Heatshrink over battery and then three big o-rings over the battery.
Works so much better than the stock mount.

A thin wrapping of bubble-wrap secured by tape will hold it in place and is very light

So I got myself a SuperSix HiMod frame set and am currently thinking of getting the Farsports F1 Bar/Stem combo.
Which cables did you guys use for Di2 on the F1?
Did you use the Y-cable in the bar and then route a single cable through the stem to the Junction box in the down tube?
Or two cables through bar and stem and use a Y to connect and link to the junction box?

Thanks for some tips and ideas!

Some pictures for your enjoyment... I put my current Zipp setup on it for the pictures. Direct mount derailleur hanger is from sigeyi.

The junction box is in the down tube so if i recall correctly there is one cable from the junction box via stem to the shifter (left in my case) and one cable just between shifters.

Is that possible? That would be a lot easier than using a Y-cable...! Never seen that option on any wiring diagram floating around...

Thank you!

That's what I did as well. Di2 works as long as every part is connected somehow, order doesn't matter at all, with or without the Y-cable.

why not stay with the zipp set up? that is how I'm building mine with cables routed internally from bars to headtude. Are there advantages to the Farsport? I prefer the look of the zipp set up as long as you're not using too many spacers.

That was the most important piece of information about Di2 for me yet...! Feel a bit stupid that I somehow missed that... :shock: :lol:
Thanks for the help!

Does anyone know the rough dimensions of the downtube port (part K32160) and how deep the downtube needs to be to accommodate the junction box?

I'm thinking to use it on a custom build...

I want to have a clean look and would prefer to hide the cables completely. I haven't dialed my position yet, so I don't know how many spacers I will need. The Zipp will be used to decide on the position, and then I will decide on the final setup. If I can slam the stem, I might stay with the Zipp.
About benefits, I think the Farsports is lighter than the Zipp setup but I will check that shortly.

Do you have some pictures of your setup?
