Managed to fold a 105 5800 chainring this morning which seems to have exploded around a ramp pin. Thanks Shimano!
external Di2 battery from WWII era! rare.
It was all second hand when I got too, 10 speed 4 lyfe!
105 Di2 incoming
It looks like Shimano has subcontracted a lot of parts and is now dependent on the delivery schedules of their suppliers.
This is my pet peeve. Why announce a new product when you know your not going to be able to supply it to consumers for many months.
I feel this - the brand I work for is an official “Launch Partner” and we will be receiving 10! Yes, 10 only! DA Groupsets in October. Shambles
I'm planning to buy a new groupset for my partner with small hands. Does anyone know if SRAM Rival AXS shifters have an easier reach than Shimano Mechanical Disc? Or if the small-hand variant Shimano shifters (7025, 8025) are any better?
(Di2 isn't an option on her frame)
Rival AXS has a much smaller reach than the mechanical Shimano stuff. Could try the campy shifters too (full reach adjust across all levels I think)
If you can find the shifters in stock on a UK site let me know.
Just picked up front and rear rival axs mech for cheap brand new on eBay.
But seems stock of the shifters is currently months away?
Edit - scratch that, just realised that Certini is a uk site?
Garmin Vector was more like many years. Everyone does it. It's why I'm basically dead to "New, Improved!" shit in ads.
Di2 wasn't an option on my frame, but I didn't let that stop me...

They look like MTB rotors rather than Ultegra.
They are. Shimano have adopted their MTB rotors for the road groupsets.
Amateurs. They could have introduced a whole new rotor mounting system
I've been buying Shimano MTB rotors for road use for ages, simply because they've been cheaper or, you know, actually available to buy.
Lighter as well.
On the hippy list of priorities, weight comes right after 'what does the packaging smell like?'
