    So, I borrowed my wife bike that has Ui2.  You've mentioned being able to see the shifts and gearing and control what the buttons do.  Do you have a newer Di2 setup?  Did you by the kit from Shimano to get it to work?

    There are two separate topics there - one is display and one is control/mapping.

    From the real time display perspective, it simply requires a Garmin (or similar) that has a BT/ANT+ connection to the Di2.  I think the newest Di2 does this via the smart battery, but my older Di2 needed the D-Fly unit (the EW-WU101 or the EW-WU111) to talk directly to the Garmin. That transmits all sorts of info, so you just need to decide what you want to see.  I choose rear gear selection (on main screen) and Di2 battery level (on a later screen), and the front and rear shift totals are shown in the ride report summary.

    Likewise, the control/mapping portion is controlled via the main junction <-> USB cable <-> laptop OR the EW-U111 via BT ("the Inline Wireless Unit lets you customize your drivetrain and update firmware right from your smartphone or other Bluetooth equipped device"). Adding in Synchro shifting, which I don't use, also requires the newer battery (I think because it has extra memory???)  This video (and ones like it) help demystify it a little bit :D

    Couple things that set them apart, the soft stretchy shoulder straps, and their old chamois. They are so small, that it's made to order, so asking for a different chamois, or anything is no big deal.

    Is yes, then this thread should easily hit 100 pages.

    I've watched it twice.  If you haven't already seen it, it is a well done story of the 1936 Washington eight crew.  Based on the book, The Boys in the Boat, by Daniel James Brown.

    The "Rocky" story of rowing.  :)

    Here is a link.  53 minutes well spent.
