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

First, glad he's ok - I'm too chicken to do more than walk in those scenarios. Ice doesn't play.

I don't "know" about the fix, but if the situation is that it's fixable or dead, there's at least no risk in trying. It should be possible to inspect the wire and see if the actual wire is damaged, or just the insulation stripped. I'd wager it's possible to either splice a new one in, re-insulate the wire in a durable way, or open the derailleur body and add a new wire from an eBay dead one.

I also wouldn't tell your friend this, but if he's upset at replacing a Di2 RD, either Di2 isn't really for him or should take out a cheaper bike in crappy conditions.

In happier news, Atomic Mom got me a 14 Pro Max for Christmas which arrived last night, direct from HK I think. Is beautiful, but not touching it much until the case arrives later this afternoon.

Chilly day here as well. Only about 50F. Had base layer, bibs, long sleeve jersey, jacket, gloves, ear muffs, and still never warmed up much. 😜

If your friend just broke the wire, the wire can be replaced. But, that would not explain the RD falling off. The wire only carries electricity, it is not structural. It plugs into the RD and is not hard wired. I’ll bet a new hanger and wire is all he needs.

Looks like I’m buying two 14 Pros this season.

61° and drizzle here. I put on my waterproof hiking shoes, wool socks, shorts and t-shirt, went down to the church for a latte and all the church goers were shocked, many asked me if I was freezing.

I'm not as dismissive of the base 14 as some, but the Pro really is much more compelling.

And nicely, the eSim did automatically pull the number from my old 11 Pro with no issues. I was pleasantly surprised.

Oh, he certainly needs a new hanger. He is upset he may need a whole new RD too. I advised I suspect not but outside my area of expertise.

Dropped the ritchey off at the LBS with the group. A buddy of mine that works there brought me a rear wheel to use until I get my new wheel set.
They didn’t have a front derailer clamp that would fit my bike, but they did seem to think that they could use the old clamp. I’m trying to stay optimistic.

Wish I had the funds to replace the bars as well, since the tape has to come off. Oh well.

Good lord man, mine are toast by then. My 7S had a dead board after a year and a half, and the 11 Pro is getting iffy. Really I want the bigger size.

Mine runs fine. The biggest issue is the battery life, which keeps getting shorter and shorter.

Daughter bought the 14 Pro for the camera before going to Africa. It is a lot better camera. Not sure what else might be better.

Son and wife now want the same.

Like my wife tells me, if you’re afraid of breakage or loss, then you shouldn’t buy it.

As someone who Stravas with a phone, the dual freq GPS of the Pro sounds good to me. But there are already phones with dual frequency GPS radios for half the cost of the 14 Pro.

I think it's possible a period correct phone would outweigh any of the bikes, and they're all > 21 lbs!
