My custom Brompton is sadly for sale. The build thread is over in the projects section here. A brief summary of the spec is as follows:
2005 Brompton frame, customised heavily with v-brake bosses added to improve braking over standard Brommies and the rear triangle cold set to accept a...

A perfect upgrade or starter bike
Based in Wisbech, Cambs
I've just had a Cannondale CAAD-13 105 disc delivered from Broadribb Cycles. I really liked my old 2010 Trek aluminium bike and wanted another despite being very happy with the carbon Giant bikes. The CAAD-13 sounded like its right up my street. The price of the 2021 model has jumped quite a...
I am at roughly 4000 miles on my 2010 Kona Cindercone (3000 logged since getting strava) on the original drivetrain and its pretty tired to say the least so after this winter i am debating getting a whole new groupset for it, its currently Deore 9 speed 3x with XT hubs. Can this bike accept a...
I seem to be having one of my stupidity attacks this morning, and can't find what I'm looking for on t'internet.
After a lifetime of racing (on & off road), touring, and mostly training :laugh: , my increasingly arthritic joints will no longer tolerate riding a road racing bike for very long...
Looking at the options for getting the most out of Ultegra Di2 8070
It seems that out of the box it works well but lacks some of the clever functionality that is possible. Such as displaying gears, synchro and battery level on your head unit and programming the hidden buttons on the hood tops...
Do you have a Giant Defy with Ultegra 6770 di2 - the one with the external battery slung under a chainstay.
I would like to add di2 to my 2014 bike and am looking for help on cable routing so would just like to pick someone’s brain when I start the project.
If you can help please drop me a...
For the past year or so, the battery on my Ultegra Di2 bike has been going from fully charged to flat in the space of about 4 days. Riding the bike just meant I had to charge the battey the day before the ride. The bike has done 5000 miles and the groupset is Ultegra 6770 6870 from 2016.
KTM Revelator Sky Di2 57cm Frameset Inc F8 full carbon fork. Never crashed or dropped. A few minor marks from year round use.Renamed Prime in current model range, its also the same frame as the Canic CXC gravel/cross bike, although that was never sold with a Di2 option.
- Flat mount calipers...
A friend has a problem with her Di2 not charging, no light showing etc. Nothing happening at all.
During discussion on this I discovered the battery is installed in the seat post. A cable runs from a charging point in the right hand bar end to the battery.
If the battery is small enough to...
To save an ultra long OP, I'll just post this link to my Google Sites Evoke page. I'm a wordy bugger and enjoy sitting on holiday and writing as opposed to reading.
I will leave some sample Ti porn below though. For anybody brave enough to wade through the website, the last page is the one with...
Went out for a ride yesterday on my Dolan with Di2 and all was going well until we stopped under a bridge to get some respite from some heavy rain. When I got back on the bike I pedalled and the gears sort of 'crunched' when I changed it down. Didn't like the sound but afterwards they seemed...
Any tips on how to perform this task - and what pads to buy - its ultegra di2 about 2 years old
usually get shop to do it - but he has closed down and everywhere else really busy - any help appreciated
I was giving the bike a once over on the weekend and noticed, that somehow, whilst the bike has ben parked up in the garage, the left hand side shifter for the front mech has an issue.
It still works fine and allows you to switch between the cogs. However, when you shift onto the small ring...
I‘m selling myCube that is 8 years old.
Its in good condition. It has new Shimano RS wheels, new derailleur jockey wheels Fitted in March this year. I’ve ridden it once since.
I have all original paperwork, it’s been featured many times on this site.
Shimano DI2 upgrade kit with internal battery (6870 or R8050) for rim brakes.
Chain rings, cassette are not necessary.
Must be in good condition and full working order. Happy to travel for collection.
My right hand hood is decaying. It is Ultegra Di2 but when I peel back the hood I can only see this reference. Am I looking in the wrong place. I don't want to peel too much or it will rip apart. I am guessing ST6870. Rim brakes on 2015 Vitus Vitesse
New replacement parts arrived today so I got stuck in to the upgrade to R8050 Di2 Ultegra from 6800 Ultegra.
First off with the old derailleurs but I left the inner cables in the frame in case I needed fish wires.
Cranks off and BB removed to get access to the frame. The BB area will house the...
I was lucky enough a little while ago to add a bike to my fleet that I have kept quiet about.
2013/2014 Giant TCR Advanced with a Shimano Ultegra (6870? correct me if I'm wrong) DI2 conversion. I only bought as it has a very healthy DI2 system and also its a bike I lusted after for quite some...
Wondered if anyone can shed some light on a Di2 issue i've been experiencing.
Bike is approx 9 months old, around 4k km covered so in theory should have been possible with a single battery charge. 3 times now i've had what seems like a dead battery. The first time i just assumed the battery...
I have a Cannonade synapse 2016 with Ultegra Di2 gearing. Over the last year I have had problems with shifting on the front derailleur. The front derailleur is over shifting and causing the chain to come of on the outside of the chain ring.
It started when going downhill and in 50/11...
I just received a new S-Works Venge from my insurance company as a replacement for my Venge Vias which got smashed up.
Both bikes have Dura Ace Di2 but on my old one I had sprint shifters but the new one didn't come with any.
I took them off my old bike thinking I could just transfer them...
Looking at upgrading my current Giant advanced defy to one of the two bikes pictured below. The only difference I can see between them is the tyres and Di2 and wondered if people think that’s worth the difference in price. Actually prefer it in red too but would love some thoughts
Posting on behalf of a friend who is selling his size 56 2017 Cervelo S3 Disc Di2 including Stages Power meter.
Reluctantly selling due to new bike purchase. Just returned from a full service. A few scuffs/wear on the crank arms, but apart from that the bike is in superb condition.
Any tips for replacing di2 battery ? - how to avoid it going way up the seat post ?
Will I need to download etube project - or will it pick up some default settings (previous battery died - replaced under warranty)
