1x setup -- keep left brifter?
« on: September 20, 2012, 02:52:09 AM »
probably should have posted this here.

have an ultegra di2 FD, RD & brifters that i've been waiting to use. now thinking they will wind up in a 1x setup.

best to rock the 6770 left brifter (essentially just using it as a brake lever) and just scrap the FD... or should i find a 6700 left brifter... or is there a better (/lighter/cheaper) alternative for CX that won't look or be idiotic?

i see some people use inline CX brake levers (overkill?)....for a di2 setup, would it make sense to have the satellite shifter for riding in the tops?

ps if someone has a need for a ui2 FD and possibly left brifter, i might have something. :)

I'd go with a gutted (that was already dead) 6700 lever. It would suck to crash and destroy a perfectly functional 6770.
