Re: Di2 battery draining

Your post said that the battery was at 75%+ when you reconnected the battery. If it was fully charged when you started and have done nothing, that is a power loss. Incidentally, the green light doesn't mean the battery is charged or at 75%, it just means there is sufficient charge for operation, ie...

Re: Di2 battery draining

have you got or can you get access to a DC current clamp meter? see if theres a measurable drain on a cable which would indicate the location of the problem. Try and get a meter with a hold function measure and record the current passing through each of the wires you should see higher readings in t...

Re: Di2 battery draining

Battery didn't seem to be losing charge after 36 hours when isolated (voltage remained constant) so I don't think it's that. Full drain normally only takes 36-48 hours for me. So, I've reconnected the battery to the system and disconnected the rear mech - just pulled the plug out of it so to speak....

Re: Di2 battery draining

Thanks, David. Good idea to disconnect the battery first (as that is the most likely problem). I'm not so good with technical things so apologies for the (probably inane) questions. I'm willing to learn as I'm loathed to have the LBS undertake these tests for me as I may well have to give the bike o...

Re: Di2 battery draining

Thanks for your help, all. I've charged it up fully, updated all firmware and am ready to begin testing tomorrow. Will take it out for a ride and see how long the battery lasts with everything connected first. Assuming the issue remains, as opposed to the 1 in 10000 chance that the firmware update h...

Re: Di2 battery draining

Thank you. I’ll try that. It seems as though it’s fine until I ride and then it’s like it doesn’t ‘disengage’ if you get me. I’ll charge it up full then take it for a spin then disconnect the junction box first.

Di2 battery draining

Morning all, I purchased a new bike with Di2 c. 6 months ago. It’s last years TCR advance 0. I’m finding that the battery is draining very quickly. Im charging it up, taking it out for a ride and then 2 days later, it’s empty. Nowhere near the 1000s of kms it’s meant to do per charge. I’ve read onli...

Re: In-between frame sizes - Giant TCR

Try the stem. It's £15-20 and if it doesn't work, so what (comparatively). It's exactly what I did too. The TCR felt perfect except towards the end of rides when I became conscious of 'reaching' for the hoods which exacerbate a pre-existing and chronic back issue I have (but am largely able to ignor...

Re: New Bike Advice - Giant TCR Advanced Pro vs Canyon Ultimate CF 8.0 vs Canyon Aeroad

Where did you snag that for £1800? Nice deal. I saw it on Pauls Cycles for £2k. Not keen on the yellow decals but they could probably be stripped off... Yes, yellow not ideal, but I can live with it. A bit of a hark back to the Once team edition ... or so i tell myself. Road it for the first time p...

Re: New Bike Advice - Giant TCR Advanced Pro vs Canyon Ultimate CF 8.0 vs Canyon Aeroad

I've just ordered my TCR Advanced 0 2018 (last years Di2 model) for £1,800 which I was happy with. Was about to purchase a Canyon Endurace 8.0 before that but, upon reading poor trustpilot reviews of the customer service, I decided to raise the matter with the online chat personnel. When I mentioned...

Re: New bike decisions (Geometry focused)

Thanks for the help thus far guys. Very much appreciated. TimothyW and PhotoNic69 - it's interesting that you feel one can, within reason, be set up properly on any bike to achieve a perfect position (more relaxed in my case) . I had, until this point, been obsessed by the frame's set geometry. On t...

New bike decisions (Geometry focused)

Hi all, First time poster, long time lurker. Apologies for the length of post, but I want to give as much info as possible for you guys to (hopefully) help me make my decision. Having recently written off my Allez (and being lucky not to have written off my leg!) I'm after a new bike. My budget is £...
