    Xtr di2 w/ sprint shifters??

    Ok so I'm sure we've all seen the video on YouTube of the guy who had an xtr di2 mech mated up to sprint shifters he put under the handle bar grips. Has anyone else tried this with success?

    Out of curiosity, what's the goal? Seems like normal shifters are in a pretty ergonomically correct position. The one video I found on YouTube had them in, what seemed to be, a fairly awkward spot.

    Di2 Dual Control though, that might be something. Or shifters on the bar ends...wait...

    My thought is to run one sprint shifters under each grip and route the cables through the handlebars to the stem and into the steerer where I want to put a junction and possibly the battery as well and the run it down through the down tube over the bb and through the chai stay for the ultimate stealth setup ever.

    Did I mention I'm a dumbass 18 year old lbs mechanic..? Why not right?

    Good decisions are made from experience, most of which is gained from bad decisions. Party on.
