Thinking of repacking di2 internals in a hylex lever. If anyone has a damaged/broken rim or hydraulic shifter with electronics working which they would be willing to let go for cheap let me know.
@yeahdext recoup some money?
Was thinking some crashed 6870s but happy to take anything if it's cheap enough
Also hylex levers in silver seem to be out of stock so if anyone has a pair let me know before I settle for a new set in black.
EVERYTHING IS OUT OF STOCK!!
Drop me a PM by all means, mine may be more suitable for repairs for a desperate person - I know the stress it's caused me sourcing one - than total butchering what is otherwise a very clean lever minus it's bleed threads... :)
Cheers for the offer. Think you'd get more for it on ebay from someone looking to replace a scuffed lever, so I'll hold out for something completely written off/ just adapt a di2 climbing shifter
Plus I think the hydraulic di2 ports are slightly different- can't use sprint shifters with them. So maybe 6870 or 8050 levers would be best
You can also get an adapter kit to put climbing shifters in TRP Hylex levers - official from TRP.
Yeah had a look at those, but don't love the aesthetic and would preferably have a few buttons on each side in different positions, plus they're pretty expensive for two buttons- maybe I'm overcomplicating this. Thanks for the suggestion though
