    dialled in a bit now. first proper ride at the weekend - surprisingly fast actually and very very comfortable. not as quick as my tcr up hills but not sluggish at all. certainly rolls over slightly crappier surfaced roads better than my tcr (making me think i should go to 28s on it too)

    the di2 has been causing problems from the start unfortunately. initially the b screw was tightened too much so wouldn't shift up the block. have fiddled with that but now believe the chain is too long. am going on holiday on thurs but will investigate when i get back. to be honest I think I will go to a 30t cassette (+ short cage) anyway as the 34t doesnt suit my riding style at all (not into gravel/bikepacking/living in the alps)

    this has always been my go-to too. will have to check the shimano spec and see where i get to

    as i said - if it is too tight in it just won't shift (which was the original problem if you look back a few pages)

    thanks all for the considerations on chain length. I will review and get back to you!

    if the b screw is tight than that the derailleur wont engage the larger cogs. this was the initial issue when it was shipped to me

    @Dammit yeah I am in Guildford but heading on holiday on Thurs. Going to play with the chain length then if that doesn't work drop it to Hoops in Farnham when I get back

    @grams synchro mode is already semi-enabled. it knows not to put it into small small; hence in that photo its not on the 11t

    so this is the "happy medium" the b screw needs to be at to ensure all the gears can be reached.... something must be wrong

    did have a look at the chain length and it seemed ok - maybe I am being to conservative?

    i do want to go to a smaller cassette tbh - 34t doesnt suit my riding style at all (not touring/bikepacking). the chain slap when you're in the 11t is ridiculous. this may help

    yes it is a fairlight. strael v3.... and it was assembled by them so assume it should work?

    shifts fine without a wheel in it. odd that the di2 derailleur sort of "hangs" vs a normal mech which springs back on itself. is that normal?

    OK so it must be something to do with the b screw. back it off completely and it shifts super smoothly on the smallest 5. it can go up to the largest (34t) but really struggles because the jockey wheel catches on the cassette.... there seems to be a happy medium where it all works ok but shifting isn't super smooth. clearly needs more tinkering - had no idea b screw had such an impact
