Tired of waiting for Shimano to come out with electronic shifting? Well Ki2Bikes have done it for you so you don’t have to wait. It takes factory Shimano Dura Ace Di2 shifters and mechs, pulls them apart and remakes them for mountain bike use. This involves a new cage on the rear mech, new springs and pivot points, oh and custom made shifters that use the Di2 buttons. This gives you push button up/down shifting under each thumb.
You’re going to be asking about the price for all this, aren’t you? Well, for a complete electric XTR kit, including brakes too, you’re looking at around $5000. For just the shifters and mechs, it’s a paltry $3500 or so.
More details from www.Ki2Bikes.com – form an orderly line then.
