Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Di2 DISC Complete group?

Does anyone know of a retailer selling a complete build kit? Or do you still have to piece it all together? I can find the lever/caliper combo no problem, but with all these wires and whatnot I would rather buy a complete kit so I know I have everything.

Assuming your using mechanical discs, it's just a matter of getting the discs, calipers, and perhaps a longer rear brake cable, and deleting or selling off the road calipers.

If you mean the new Shimano hydraulic road discs then I personally have not seen it available after market yet built or sold as a kit but I only have access to a couple of distributors. But if you can find the new levers/calipers it would be very easy to build up the kit and any LBS can order either a custom kit excluding levers/brakes (assuming you want crankset, cassette, chain, and BB) or electronics only. It really is easy to figure out the junction boxes and wire lengths.

Below is a link to the manuals which have great diagrams, and I've seen some other threads/links which have simple to read flow charts to ensure you get the parts you need (internal, external, whatever)

Will the hydro levers work with Magura calipers?

Starbike.com sells Di2 6870 groupsets without the BR-6800 clincher brakeset. You would have to buy the mechanical calipers/rotors separately.

Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 groupset 11s internal cable routing without brakes 2014 | starbike.com

Cart prices are in €.

Only problem with buying a di2 kit is you have to sell the levers because the hydro kit has different levers. Also I believe the hydro kit does not include rotors.

Exactly, that's why you buy the Di2/hydraulic levers as one package since OP says he has even able to source them then have your shop order what's called a "custom kit" from their distributor where they can pick and choose the needed components and junction boxes. It's pretty simple. If the OP would prefer online purchases it's also pretty easy to figure the necessary pieces once he has the brakes and levers (need e- tube wires x 6, junction A, junction B, rear der, frt der, 11spd cassette and chain, etc) this also assumes he has compatible wheel set since the new hydraulic road disc di2 is only available in 11spd or so I've been led to believe

Wouldnt you have to reprogram the di2 for that? I haven't seen this option on my e-tube software. Very cool though

IIRC, the 10 speed vs 11 speed is determined by the rear derailleur. As long as the firmware on all the devices are up to date you can run 6870 on everything aside from the rear derailleur and the di2 system will still work fine.

Yep read der. I'm getting ready to take the 10 speed ultegra di2 off my roubaix and put it on my crux with the hydro brakes.

I guess I missed where the OP said he was looking for the hydraulics/shifters, but he won't find them in a groupset because those aren't Ultegra.

As far as a set with all the wires included, there's no way around it, different bikes will need different cable lengths.
