Took the plunge and went for Di2 in the end, have to say, at the very least it looks sweet. Not tried it yet though, maiden voyage tomorrow Smile Had a play though and gear changes are silly quick at the touch of a button. Can change up and down the cassette in one fair swoop too, if you really want to. Also just fitted these carbon cages from Elite. Big fan of the plastic cages so snapped these up when I saw them on the bay..

Also managed to buy back my old frame for £50. I'm building it up into a winter hack/turbo trainer work horse. Will run it till it breaks!

Too right, ruddy lovely. Jealous does not describe what I am feeling.

Very Happy

Cheers chaps. Now I've done a few miles it is very nice. Instant changes. I have to fine tune the upchange on the back a little bit, it's all done electronically from the "ecu" and the levers. Quite cool. Cooler than me anyhow!
