    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    I also was suspecting the Shiftmate. I did reinstall the cable through it a while ago but will look at it again.
    I also wonder if those things can wear out.

    I see a few potential problems.
    48/30 is beyond the 16T capacity of the Di2 front derailleur.
