Jeffr wrote:I had some leftover boards from the di2 project for last year's interbike linear shifting mountain bike. A few days ago I converted it to work on a road bike with a pair of shifters. Going between linear and standard mode with a button press. I had honestly not ridden the linear shifter more than 30 seconds on the showroom floor until two days ago. It was absolutely fantastic. I feel ridiculous for not having done it sooner. The linear shifting on the road feels very natural. I don't notice the front shifting at all. And holding the button down to shift multiple gears is very intuitive. It really freed my mind and my hands from extra complication. It was quite surprising.
Here's a picture of the final two boards. I'm now out of PCBs although I have some of the wireless proto boards left that I could hack into wired units with some extra programming.
Many people sent me emails about this project which I had at one time thought about commercializing. I'm sorry I did not reply. Life has gotten in the way. I will experiment with it more now that it is on my bike and report back as I have more information. Thanks to all of you who sent me encouraging words.
