VIDEO: Dura-Ace Di2 9150 Unboxing

 Mar 28, 2020 article & images by Nick Salazar


We recently built up Joe Gambles' Omni with the latest Dura-Ace Di2, and posted both a gallery and a video of the rig. But what we didn't say was how much fun we had building that bike.

We've used Shimano Di2 groups before, and we've written a lot about Di2. But we'd never used the newest offering, the 9150 group. Shimano has introduced some very nice features into the Di2 ecosystem compared to the last time we used it, most notably the synchro shifting that is a very potent argument against the 1x trend.

So, being so thoroughly impressed with Joe's rig, we decided to build up a bike of our own, and let you in on the process. Here's a quick unboxing of some of the parts we are using on our own build, for your viewing pleasure. It's not meant to be comprehensive, just a tease. Stay tuned for the full build, coming soon. Thanks for watching!
