    In which case, is anyone selling any of the items I need? Can be a shit condition as long as they work.
    I was planning on putting a seat tube battery in the extension if it will fit.

    Yeah, I have a charger from my other bike with Di2. That's where I will steal the TT shifter from as well. And is there anything the new stuff will do that the older stuff won't?

    As far as I can see it's just Bluetooth and sequential shifting, but if it's 1x I wouldn't need that anyway.

    If I already have the shifter(s) and want to run my TT bike with a 1x11 Di2 setup am I correct in thinking I only need the following:

    Rear Mech
    Junction Box
    Battery
    Wires

    Is there any downside to buying older 11s stuff rather than the newest generation?

    They don't currently do custom bags. The ones done for me were in part looking at how it would work, but I'm not sure it will be coming any time soon.

    Great ride Nick. Looks like you rode very consistently and paced it well. I was all over the place but learned a lot.

    I also actually put on weight and finished with a few of the SIS bars I set off with. Taking the eating competition thing a little too seriously.

    I can see the difference but I would definitely say it’s a grey area at best. They cannot offer the same support to other riders and the rules state-

    Only use commercial services that are available to all challengers - no private resupply, no private lodging

    I don’t want to cause any trouble/start a fight, but how is it not ok to give riders food but acceptable to give them your brake pads as I believe happened to you on the HT550?

    She was leaving cp2 as I arrived at 1am but I think she pushed hard to get the ferry and needed to catch up on sleep. I rode with her for a bit after the Ring of Kerry but she was nursing an achilles pain.

    Cheers. I moved my cleats in to increase Q factor and saddle up slightly. Seems to help but the inner back of my right knee has weird pain now.

    Do you have the link to the no ibuprofen study thing? Is it a total no-no?

    Ireland is stunning. I’ve been excited about being in and out of the top twenty, but that was never really my plan.
    I’m going to get extra rest tonight and maybe take it a little easier tomorrow (although I don’t feel I’m over reaching)

    I didn’t sleep at all on the first night despite trying to bivvy at Malin Head, and my saddle is too wide causing knee pain and saddle sore issues.
