What he said ^^^^^ – either it’s uneconomic to make, it’s not as good as Di2, or they’ve pulled apart Di2 and are still refining their system based on what they’ve found. Whatever, Shimano have stolen a march in being first (and second, with ‘Ui2’) to market and the Campag equivalent will cost a fortune if it ever breaks cover.Posted 6 years agoMister PMember
Ui2? You mean Ultegra Di2? The D in Di2 stands for Digital not Dura Ace – Digital Integrated Intelligence.
I hope that Campag do get their electronic group out, from what I have read it has some features that the Shimano system does not have. It would force Shimano to react and make an already impressive system even better.Posted 6 years ago

yes, yes – I know… and I know you know…. but it’s such an f’ing mouthful and you knew what I meant. Rightly or wrongly, now the mags have started calling it Ui2, I think the war has been lost!

speculationreview said as much…. but how long do we have to wait? Will Shimano have done a 105 release before that happens? I’m waiting for Ultegra to arrive and will probably take the plunge. <blows raspberry in Campags direction>
Campag to join the fun next year then….. maybe….Posted 6 years agosteve_b77Member
I’d love to be able to afford the Shimano version, my mate has it on his Dogma and has ridden 1000’s of miles on it with no issues at all including from the Canadian Border to the Mexican Border over 10 or 11 days – faultless.
I echo the thoughts on Italian electrickery though 😯Posted 6 years agowhatnobeerMember
Looks like its definitely happening (spring 2012) and it weighs less than Di2, not by much though. The only problem is they’ve called it “Campy Tech Lab” which is such a shite name.Posted 6 years agoMacavityMember
Not Campagnolo , but shows what can be done with electric gears
Although, as Valentino Campagnolo says:Posted 6 years ago
“Do you have an example of a product that took years to develop?
VC: [Laughs] This is a good way to arrive at the main topic, the electronic components. It has been particularly difficult. The company did not have the competence in that field; our company had its strength in metal engineering.”AnalogueAndyMember
Has anyone got Di2 (or tried it?)
I borrowed a Trek fitted with it. Not a completely fair test as the bike was new to me (I ride a Colnago which I chose to stick Dura Ace on instead of Campag after years of problems getting spares for old and not so old campag kit).
The Di2 was easy to get used to (more intuitive than any other ‘conventional’ shifter) and worked great.. if money was no object I’d have bought it.
There was an interview with one of the pro team riders (or was it a mechanic possibly?) that hinted at some reliability issues.. I guess the fact that I can’t find it and the fact that they’re bringing out an Ultegra version means if there was an issue they’ve ironed it out.Posted 6 years ago
