Anyone running Di2 or planning on running Ultegra Di2 on thier cross bikes?

Would be interested to hear what the durability/reliability of the shifting is like when caked in mud. I would imagine the FD auto trim would go haywire when muddy?

I've seen a few guys that have it on their mtn.bikes and they say it works perfectly but then I read that professionals had problems with it on a couple of the dirt road stages in this year's Giro. :noidea:

Cross can destroy any derailure and will. Don't use what your not prepared to replace is even more true for cross.

Coloclimber had a good review on di2, and he used it on his cross bike too. Might be worth a read 8)

Suggest you get your pit crew to lay-off the powerwasher if you do..
