Shimano's Di2 has taken one of the few traditional bits of the bicycle and slapped it about with some science. </p> <p>While bike materials have changed dramatically in the last few years (carbon fibre and titanium, for example) and brakes have gone hydraulic, suspension types have multiplied and even tyres have gone tubeless, the good old-fashioned gears are pretty much as they've been since the 70s. Enter Shimano's electronic gear-shifting tech to change all that.</p> <p><strong>Sci-fi cycling</strong></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £2,934.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">6 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The space-age gear shifters perform spectacularly, but at such a steep price </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/shimano-dura-ace-di2 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/shimano-dura-ace-di2/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/shimano-dura-ace-di2/review#comments Dura-Ace Di2 Shimano Sport Thu, 16 Jul 2009 05:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 12790 at http://www.stuff.tv
