I have a Vitesse frame and a Di2 7970 system I want to install as clean as I can without too many wires showing and hopefully install the battery in the seat post. I plan to run flatbars and use cateye buttons for shifters. Just wondering if anyone has done one...

Bike Friday's Beijing dealer has a couple examples on Taobao -- if you go to Taobao and search "Friday" and "di2" they'll come up. Installation choices are model specific but perhaps inspiring?

Edit: from another dealer one comes up searching "Ori" and "di2" -- haven't found examples for other brands but only did a cursory sampling
