    Square taper Bottom Brackets for Di2 internal cable routing

    i intend to use square taper BB with Di2 internal routing. Those that should have enough clearance to run the wire in between the BB and the shell are -

    2) http://www.specialites-ta.com/gb/boitier-axix-rte.html

    Can anyone suggest others that can be used?

    Thanks for the advice. i don't think it's necessary to start another External Vs Square Taper BB debate

    I didn't know that anyone would debate it. The weight of that titanium Specialties TA is pretty impressive, though.

    If those work, you might also be able to get away with an FSA Ultimax or Shimano UN91.

    Appreciate the suggestions. I probably would ask the manufacturers if they can provide the diameter at the middle.

    My only suggestion is to use a good piece of duct tape and tape the wire to the frame to make sure that it doesn't come loose. It shouldn't be a big deal, just remove the bb from time to time to check to make sure the wire hasn't come loose.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
