    UPDATE: After many thousands of kilometres, including a good deal of rainy ones, my original Luxos U has failed after a long day in the rain, just 2 weeks after my last post. It started flashing and...

    Good suggestions in both previous posts, I think, but before making gear or setup changes, I would suggest waiting a while longer to see if you get used to the recent change in your training regimen....

    FWIW, I have both the new and old models of the Luxos U. The new model doesn't have much mileage but the old model has performed flawlessly for me, including for 8-hour stints in heavy rain while...

    So, did you get the Secula? I use PD-8/Luxos U/B&M Toplight Line Break and PV-8/Luxos U/Spanninga Pixeo Xs combos.
    I'm wondering if the Secula is worth upgrading the Pixeo.

    Waow. Great idea Asi. Thank you.
    Tried a short prototype and your suggestion works great. Don't think I'll keep looking very long for something ready-made now.

    I have no idea, but given the size of the Shimano wires, I suppose it's minimal.


    I'll be using this battery.

    I'd thought of Cat 5 too, but its outside diameter is too big.

    I guess I should use multiple strand conductors then. But I need to find some that are as good as the one in the Shimano wire.

    Good idea. Might work. I'll see what I can find. Thanks.

    Yes, I did mean solid by "single strand". You're right, it is less flexible, but I've used some in my current setup (Northern Telecom phone...

    Thanks for the info. The gears don't seem to know this however, as they are currently working fine and I'm confident they will continue to do so when the new configuration is implemented.

    Di2 wire needed

    Hi,

    I wired a 7970 Di2 internally, bringing all the wires to the junction box under the BB. Works great but this winter I want to improve it to something more stealthy and secure, with the battery...

    Don't see why you need the Bright-Bike thing if you get the Luxos U. BTW, the Luxos U can also provide USB current when the headlamp is on (in my experience at least, using an SP PD-8 hub), although...
