If I go from the large ring to the small in front, the rear shifts automatically to put me in the appropriate gear so I'm not suddenly spinning air. It's slick as hell on hills. Well worth the investment.
That's interesting, I wonder if my older Ultegra DI2 can be programmed to do that? Will need to look into that.

you need to have the BT-DN110 or BT-DN100 battery in order to enable synchro shift or semi-synchro shift. Personally, I hated it and disabled it after trying it for a week or 2. You can tweak the specifics on the f/r shifting (as in when the front ring changes, or to what gears the back is changing), but I never found it as smooth as manual Di2 shifting.

..of course I like to shift my cars too (3 pedals!)...so maybe it's a mental thing

I didn't like the full sync shift because it would do so at times I wasn't expecting it. But the semi-sync works well for me. I don't go to the small ring up front very often as most hills here are doable on the large ring, but on the steep hills, it's nice to shift to the smaller ring and have the rear cog right where I need it to avoid spinning air. All a matter of personal preference, I guess.

Wifey says, "5 grand?!!? Ok, so for my 5 grand I want a vacation to Hawaii this year."

I'm thinking win/win.
So funny. Been there, but with guns because, well, my wife can't talk about bike prices.

Yes, you are winning.

When my wife was reconciling our books there was an $8k charge that wasn't accounted for. My stupid mistake for not hiding it better. But i was on the hook and told her it was my MTN bike. She must think like your wife.... She says, Ok, here is the new indoor trainer i want. Thanks. lol

Win for me too!

For the longest time M3post wouldn't let me log in due to an unverified email address. It kept telling me to enter a valid email address, but the email was always correct. I got a PM and boom. all fixed.

If any of you are on Instagram, i'm MrTonka.MTB.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to finagle the new Domane SL7 disc. Just my luck they'd come out with that a year after I bought mine.
