Not completely solid no but I assume they must have some reinforcing / internal sturcutre on high stress areas which prevents a cable being run internally from one side to the other. No need for anything to exit near the stem as long as a cable can run internally from one bar end to the other.
My suggestion relied on the bars being hollow, which it seems they're not. Every alloy bar I've had has been completely hollow so I wrongly assumed the carbon ones were as well.
Apologies then. I thought they were hollow.
The Di2 alloy Pro Vibe ones definitely are so they'd work with the routing described above.
Its internally drilled for the di2 junction on both sides of the bars so you can feed the cable into the hole on the right and all the way through to the left and the junction box. The brake cables are external but you can run that Di2 cable internally. Thats the only Di2 cable that would be internal. The ones from left bar end to shifter and left shifter to the frame would be under the tape.
Yeah hence my earlier comment that almost all cheap di2 compatible bars are external. However, routing it as I described in the post above would be pretty neat.
Sorry link updated, it was the non aero model I was trying to link to...
Most cheap di2 compatible bars have external cabling for the brakes.
These look good for £89 (using the New User Code)
Put the junction box in the left hand bar end. Run a cable from right shifter into right bar end hole all the way through the bars and into the bar end junction on the left side. Then run di2 cable from bar end junction up to left shifter and then left shifter into the frame shrink wrapped with the brake line.
Cool, Ill drop you a pm regarding the bars
Do you still have the bars? Also you mentioned the potential for a Di2 bar end port to be included as well... Cheers
Cool sounds good
