Now as it happens I am an eBay beast and I've managed to pick up all the Dura Ace Di2 excluding wiring kit for not a lot of money. I also saw the below item which has appealed to my sense of "I want it, and I want now" so fingers crossed it'll be in sunny south London by my not so big birthday on the 8th June.
Mrs. Marat is obviously less than pleased so the Kuota Kom has to go and any spare bits lying around plus...............working like a dog on court til my Ventoux weekend in September. Hopefully it will be ready by then as I still need drivetrain, finishing kit etc Don't think I've the cash flow for it to be ready by the Etape.
At the price I paid if I don't like it, I'll be able to turn it round without losing any money, even making a little. Which is handy because it's entirely wrong for me.............................but it is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!
