    Don’t forget cables and junction boxes. They add a reasonable amount to the overall costs.

    You may also require additional hardware to fit the battery, assuming internal, into the seatpost.

    You'll also need a fair chunk of disposable cash.:smile:

    The brakes are cable operated. The ‘electric’ part is that they also have switches to change gear.

    Depends how hilly the TT course is as you’d not ride on the bars on steeper sections but still may wish to change gear.

    They are optional though and you don’t need to fit them. Just stay with your current brakes if you prefer.

    Yep amended;I blame the wine:whistle:

    One point though;might be worth getting the software checked to make shure it has the latest software.

    Also thinking about Di2 Ultegra upgrade. Don't understand Shimano site.Can 10 speed be upgraded - or is it only 11 speed?

    Think you need to upgrade everything pretty much. Your wheels should be compatible with 11 speed at least

    Think you may also need a compatible frame?

    Some discussion here

    If you want the latest software, which allows customisation, you also need to make sure you have the latest battery (BT-DN110). If you have this, it’s easy to upgrade the software yourself using the e-tube app. Even easier if you get the wireless unit.

    The older 6870 shifters and mechs will work with the latest software though, if you want to save money.

    If you’re fitting it yourself, be careful to leave enough slack in the cables so they don’t get yanked out of their sockets when you turn the handlebars. And get the spudger tool for connecting the cables - you risk damaging them otherwise.
