Ultegra Di2 install questions
Maybe this need to go in the Electronics forum but thought will post here first.
Frame = Litespeed C1R for internal Di2/Ui2, BB30
Groupo = Ultegra Di2/Ui2
I think I got everything figured out but have a couple of questions. Internet search did not offer much help. Hoping some of you mechanics might have already worked with Di2 systems.
1. Do I need the anti rattle zip ties? The wires I got did not come with any but I see them in some images online. Since the ultegra cables are smaller than dura ace, maybe there is no need for them?
2. Do I need to cover the BB30 shell cutout that's used to fish the cables and connect? I am worried that the cables might creep into the BB axle area and cause a problem. I was thinking of using duct tape but was not sure if that was the right way to go.
Very excited and cannot wait to get it built up and ride. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
