- Di2 Road STI mixed with MTB 1×11
I just impulse bought a pair of Di2 STI’s (R785) as the price was too good to pass on.
What I would like to do is combine it with a MTB rear derailleur and 11-42t cassette for use as a gravel drive train.
I’ve heard tell that this is possible but have no idea about what to combine and all the other Di2 bits n bobs required.
Anyone had success in this area, if so, what did you use??
Update* I see the specialised diverge s-works uses this rig, so that provides me with the majority of my shopping list (unless you can think of better pairings) but what do I need to hook it all together??Posted 4 months agocrazybaboonSubscriber
I’m using the same levers (r785) with XT Di2 rear mech, 11/40 rear cassette and 42t superstar front ring.
I’m using the XT m800 display/junction as well at the moment, although I’ve also used the normal 5 port under stem junction
No problems to report, you have to select mtb on the e tube software to update it not road, but you have to update the m800 junction by Bluetooth
ive done 6 cx races on it this season as well as training rides and can definitely recommend itPosted 4 months ago
