shimano-dura-ace-di2-remote-shifter01NAHBS 2010 – Shimano, which stepped in a few months ago as the title sponsor of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, was on hand primarily to meet and greet all the small builders and show them different applications for Shimano equipment, in particular the electronic Dura-Ace Di2 group.  From the looks of things around the show floor, a lot of builders have jumped on the group despite the steep price…which you’ll see as we post more of the 1,300+ photos (and the show’s not even over!) we’ve taken.

Rather than miss an opportunity to wow folks, the big ‘S’ debuted their all new remote shifter for Di2.  Intended to mount on the handlebar near the stem for easy thumb shifting while climbing, the tiny remote shows future potential for the group and creates a pretty solid add-on.

Hit more for pics and details…


While zip ties are the best aesthetic, the remote shifter could theoretically be placed anywhere with a little wire splicing and creativity.


The remote shifter should be available mid-Summer, price TBD.

Yall should do a post with the Road bike from Ellis Cycles with the Di2, with the battery tucked in on the non-drive side of the chainstay, really cool design.
