Shimano Syncronized Shifting for DI2 Ultegra 6870 and Dura Ace 9070

New Dura Ace R9150 has bought with it Shimano's synchronised shifting... but there's some great news, if you're using previous generation DI2 Dura Ace or current DI2 Ultegra then moving to a new battery is all it takes to open the door to synchronised shifting.

Shimano Dura Ace R9100 Group Set

Silver linings. I’m a big believer in them. Sometimes, as I often see in my day job, bad things happen to good people. You can’t control them, often it’ll be the case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The thing you can control however is your reaction to the situation.

ZWATT Power Meter launches on Kickstarter

Danish start-up SENSITIVUS gauge has thrown their hat into the Kickstarter bicycle power-meter ring and they want you to join team ZWATT. This project is a little different to other Kickstarter-power-meters we’ve seen before. You aren’t just a backer; you’re a tester, a data source, a part of a democratic community developing ZWATT and choosing its future direction. In return, you get a competitively cheap power meter. ZWATT’s not to like about that?
