Can you fit mechanical group on Di2 specific frame? Specifically Azzuri Forza.
I want Ui2 group and buying a complete bike and swapping the bits and reselling the donor bike seems to be the cheapest way of doing it. I'd prefer not to do it this way but I don't really see an alternative. Not interested in keeping the Azzuri.
Alternative is to sell the Azzuri without groupset but I can't see anyone being interested in that as it will cost more than what the bike costs new to buy groupset. Maybe someone wants some art for their wall?!
I doubt it - it probably won't have the necessary cable mounts if it has internal wiring.
Cycle touring blog and tour journals: whispering wheels...
Merlin have Ultegra Di2 for a touch under 1.5k.
I'm sure some of the carbon bike repairers could add the necessary mounts for the cables etc, a phone call may give you an answer
It wouldm't be worth it.
I think they are currently out of stock anyway. Price would work out to be over $1800 once you add GST, duty and freight. still cheaper and less hassle I guess than buying a complete bike and swapping/pirating the parts I want.
I believe the giant tcr advanced 0 has a frame which has internal cable routing. From.what I understood, it is the same frame that they use for the mechanical versions of the tcr, just different colour.
Depends on the frame. Cables for gears require some specific attention to ensure lack of friction etc. It is NOT a given that your Di2 frame could take cables like that... that said, you could easily go the other way.
Yeah this correct, it has the mounts under the bottom bracket and plugs on the front of the head tube.
When I had a look they were only out of stock of particular chain set and cassette combinations.
Cecil Walker have the groupset for $1,749 with free shipping in Australia.
Bargin, I'll take two!
I ride, therefore I am.
...real cyclists don't have squeaky chains...
just watch out for the "Elglish" BB
It actually works out cheaper than buying from o/s once you add duty and GST
