Titus 29er mountain bike with Di2

Fairwheel Bikes, a distributor out of Tucson, AZ has developed in-house a “brain” for communicating drivetrain controls via Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifters.  Built on a ti Titus 29er, the brain of the system is housed in the stem.

The brain takes care of the front derailleur.  When you get to the smaller cogs of the cassette, it will shift into the big ring for you, and bump the cassette back up a cog. Or whatever it “thinks” would be best for the given situation of effort. Same thing in reverse; start shifting up the cassette and it will drop the front back into the small ring and adjust the rear derailleur into the gear it has decided that would be best for you. And your family. And the world. Harmony through better computing. ;)
