Great work, glad you got it in the end. Been reading this but I know not much about Di2 so not much help, but very interesting.

That loks super clean. Love the wheels on it, and the BMW theme. Did the topcap come with the frame?

And a rear brake lever.

Long time ago I've seen those wheels :D Did you take off the rear brake track yourself or was there a version with a carbon brake track?

and answer to my own question Image

Which particular patent did this come from? I'm interested to see if there are schematics for the other wires for a project I am doing.

EDIT: Nevermind. I found it.

Another question, I'm a chemical engineer so all these electrons are confusing.

Using the colour coding above, what did you connect to each of your buttons?

I'm making my own satellite shifters so have bought some Omron B3S 1002 buttons (should I have bought the grounded version?), and I have also bought a spare cable so I have the plug that goes into the right hand shifter.

I figure I need the Red +7VDC going to both buttons, but after that I'm not sure what I connect the other terminal to.

rd:

black/green=up
red/green= down

fd could be

white/black= up
red/white= down

at least rd is correct and logically fd is correct too

i´m with electronics and i blowed my front cable set so be careful

I kinda need some help! I'm trying to hook up a climbing shifter directly to the front wire but i don't where to start. The climbing shifter has 3 wires (purple, grey and yellow) and the front wire has 4 wires for each side (black, blue, green and red).

For the 4 wires on the front harness, there are only 3 that you need to connect to: the common ground, then the positive one for each button. When I hooked up my custom buttons I just used trial and error to figure out which was which, although the diagram above can help you out. Actually, if you have the front harness plugged into the Di2 system, if you "briefly" touch pairs of wires together it shift your derailleur - that will tell you which wires do what. Then unplug the battery and connect your wires (just twist "em), then plug the battery in and test the buttons.

If there's any chance you are in NorCal I would be happy to help you in person.
