    Post hoc Ui2 shifting?

    I already built a cross frame and the person now wants to use Shimano electronic shifting. This is new to me so I didn't plan for this in the build.

    I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to accommodate this request without just saying they should tape the cables externally to the frame.

    Thanks for any advice...

    Is the frame already complete and painted? If not you could still remove unnecessary brazeons and drill small holes in the appropriate areas for internal wire routing.

    I just did a quick google search and didn't find any adapters for running Di2 wires through cable stops, so I'm not sure this is an option. Surely the market has found a need for this type of product before?

    Good luck.

    Thanks HoffmanBikes for the advice. I'm hesitant to take off the brazeons just cause that leaves the option to go cables off the table when the battery runs out and she wants to swap out
    I got some good advice from Engin on another forum and found the linked dealer manual from Shimano for this gruppo. It does almost spell it out even if i could use better pictures of the arrangement. It'd be ideal to have the gruppo in hand but I won't have that opportunity.
