Hi, I've just bought a Specialized Roubaix with Di2 and want to connect to my Garmin 1030. I found the video most instructive, I don't know if you respond to questions, but could the problem illustrated in the video be due to installation in the seat tube? While it looks a very neat option, that I would like to adopt, the little I've read on the EW-WU111 units suggests installing on outside of frame and as close as possible to the GPS unit. Kind regards Peter

@Shane Miller - GPLama Many thanks for taking the time to respond. I'll try my seat post first, as battery is located there, do the the firm ware updates before putting post in frame than see how it goes. Thanks again Peter

The failure of the unit was an issue with the way in which they to the pairing over Bluetooth. It may have since been resolved with new firmware…. It’s not terminal either way. As for the location and signal strength - It depends on the frame and size. This worked well in the frame. I’ve put the module in the handlebars with follow up changes I’ve made. It’s also working well there.

Thanks for this video, it saved me a lot of hassle. Even in 2021 with a unit manufactured 19/01/21 I had the same issue apart from mine got to about 30% before it died and bricked my bike! I left it outside the bike whilst performing the update but it seemed to make no difference. Following the procedure here it's now all sorted and working. Phew!

@Shane Miller - GPLama good to hear. So i am currently installing the ew-wu111 unit. Had the same issue you did. Firmware failed to update and bricked the bike. Unplugged the wireless module and reattached the wire to the battery ( no wireless unit). Still a brick. Any ideas?

I simply replaced the EW-JC200 with the EW-WU111 at the stern. Perfect connection and updating without any bricking. If I had to install it in the seattube I would leave it outside till any updating is done.

!!Easier way to "unbrick"!! (maybe) I recently installed the wireless unit and it failed while updating the software as per video. After looking online, it seems the problem causing the bike to "brick" is the app not being able to disconnect properly. And when the app is connected you can't use the gear shifting. To break the connection I uninstalled the app and removed the wireless unit from the phone bluetooth list. The shifting would then work. I reinstalled the app and went through the connection process again and everything worked the 2nd time 😀. Not sure why it falls the first time for most people though. Shimano should have solved problem by now.

Good video. I tried something different that worked perfectly. Just plug the PCE1 Windows USB interface directly into the EW-WU111 on the workbench before you put it on the bike or connect it to anything else. You can do all the firmware update and unit configuration with 0 danger of bricking your bike. After setup, then install the EW-WU111 on your bike and it works perfectly first time!

Does the battery drain faster if EW-WU111 is paired with your bike computer when you ride? I would assume so, but by how much?

The ELEMNT units do not have a 'Di2 battery' field. This can be viewed under the sensor menu. Not sure on the gear ratio display... I'd have to check.

Carbon fiber absorbs RF bigtime so from that standpoint for BT connectivity, I would expect that putting a Bluetooth module inside a frame tube would not be ideal whether a metal frame or carbon fiber.

I did the connection from the junction box, not my battery, which was on my down tube (Pinarello). Followed the steps, and yes it crashed my system; nothing on my di2 worked. I deleted the Etub app from my phone. Downloaded the Etub software from Shimano to my computer, plugged the charger to the junction box and the other end (USB) to my computer. Right away noticed the software indicated my di2 battery was dead. Charged the battery. Re-connected to computer and was able to do an update to a derailleur that was needed and change what the buttons on top of the hoods do (paging back and forth Garmin pages). Everything works great. Thinking something drained the battery which caused the issue of di2 not working. Also, having these preferences on the iPhone app is nice but for peace of mind, if you can, do the connection through a computer (or tablet) with the Etub software.

@VeloNippon The signal strength is great. I even wrapped the unit in bubble wrap so it's not banging against the down tube. Maybe .1 or .2 seconds delay using top buttons, nothing that's irritating. I only use buttons to page through Garmin pages.
VeloNippon
VeloNippon 6 місяців тому
I'm also Pina owner and can't decide where to install the wireless unit. How is the signal strength from inside the down tube? Any delays when using the top buttons? My second choice is hide the unit inside the aluminum stem which is apparently Di2 compatible.

Great video as is all your instructional content. Just one caveat. You might want to add that if you have connectivity issues with your head unit when the EW-WU111 is mounted in the seat tube, as I did with my 2021 Pinarello Prince, consider moving it closer to the cockpit. Luckily for me, the built-in ETUBE junction A box is in the downtube and I was able to install the wireless unit much closer to my Garmin Edge 530. Once safely stowed there, I had no connection issues and no more "beep" each time the unit would reconnect as it was when installed in the seat tube. Thanks again for all the great content.

Hi Shane. I was watching one of those pro bike build videos on YT the other day & I’m sure that the mechanic plugged this into the rear mech somehow presumably not to add weight & leave it permanently on the bike. Is that possible?
Ian Brewer
Ian Brewer 7 місяців тому
@Shane Miller - GPLama Apart from the fact I don’t have a Windows machine (I’ve watched your video on that subject 😉) that sounds like the safest way forward rather than risking bricking it. Just need a couple more bits before install. Thanks Shane appreciate the replies 👍🏻

@Shane Miller - GPLama 1 more question (I’m not trolling you honest 😂) Isn’t there a way of updating the firmware on the unit before you install it on the bike to avoid bricking it? I’m buying all the Di2 bits separately so couldn’t I connect it to the battery outside of the bike & update it that way?
Ian Brewer
Ian Brewer 7 місяців тому
@Shane Miller - GPLama Thanks Shane 👍🏻 Seems like a good idea rather than bricking the system 😂
Shane Miller - GPLama
Shane Miller - GPLama 7 місяців тому
If they wanted to update/reprogram a Di2 system without leaving it installed then connecting it in-line at the rear derailleur is a top option. It’s the only place the Di2 cable is exposed on a number of newer bikes.

Great video. Thanks. I'm learning so much from you. Question: How is the connectivity with EW-WU111 unit inside the frame? Have you noticed any issues. My connectivity is "spotty" and so I'm going to move the unit but I wonder if others have had that issue. The instructions say not to put it there but I too like the stealthy "hidden within the frame" cleaner look. But if that impacts connectivity then I may have to stick with the instructions. Anyone else have experience here?
Terence Anders

@Tom Hunt, my solution was short lived and I'm losing connection again, will have to move my unit to the bars. Also an unwanted side effect is turning off the bluetooth means the phone app won't connect now and need the pc to turn it back on. So overall it was a failure.

Hi Tom. My wireless unit is in the seat tube and I was experienced dropouts like yourself. I set the wireless unit to transmit in Ant+ only via the app (Shane explains how to do it in the app update video) and it now works fine without moving it. Go figure.

Hi Shane, I'm trying to determine the right quantities and different lengths of EW-SD50 electric cables needed for a SM 2018 Giant TCR Advanced that I am upgrading to Di2. I won't be using climbers or sprinter switch EW-JC130 so it'll be straight setup R8050 with Junction A bar end EW-RS910 and Junction B down tube SM-JC41. I will use internal seat post battery BT-DN110-A. I will be, however, use EW-WU111 somewhere along the setup. (External as opposed internal setup probably ideal?!) I wonder if you can give pointers of where and how to determine the lengths? Thank you

Just wanted to thank you for all of your extremely helpful videos on Di2, adding the wireless module, E Tube project, etc. Everything you covered was spot on, and worked exactly how you showed it would, including the wireless module quitting part way through the initial update and bricking the bike! I would have been in total panic mode, but I just followed your steps and it worked the second time and all works great now. I had the opportunity to spend a couple weeks in Sydney and the east coast of Australia in late January just before Covid hit. What a beautiful country and such nice people! Thanks again!

i just bought a di2 8070 upgrade kit for my 2020 tcr pro ccc, and ordered also the ewwu111, as the firmware of this module still isn't renewed, i ran with open eyes in the same update issue you got back in the days of this video, only after disconnecting the module my di2 still was a single speed 😒, reconnecting the ewwu111 did the trick for me. usefull video Shane! it saves me a load of sweat buttocks 😎

I watched this before adding the wireless unit. Install went ok and then connected to the E-TUBE app where the wireless unit needed an update. Update was successful but I had a bricked Di2 unit. Having a canyon with it’s less than accessible battery I decided first to turn off Bluetooth on my phone. Doing that the Di2 on the bike came back to life. Whew, as I didn’t really want to access the battery. Also, for the password you can just X out of the reset screen and it will stay all 0’s.

Hi Shane, having just purchased my first Di2 bike, I came across your video on installing the wireless unit. In the video, you mention that you were going to see how good the signal was in the tube and that you may move it to closer to the headset. How did you get on with the signal strength?

You are a lifesaver! I bought my Di2 Dura Ace equipped bike from Canyon online so when I bricked it, I didn't feel I could take it to my local store. I had all the problems you had with adding the EW-WU111, with the firmware, with the Bluetooth-LE connection, etc. Without your videos, I'd still be on a 1-speed! After having crashed during the firmware update and then restoring everything with a PC, I was unable to connect over Bluetooth-LE. I kept getting and error. But your tip about going into the settings on my phone and removing the EW-WU111 was great -- that fixed it. Everything connected and then it updated the firmware of my WE-WU111 and bingo. Finally I am connected to my Garmin. Wow, this was a lot harder than with SRAM. I have a Shimano bike and a SRAM bike and I've become a SRAM convert through this. (BTW, I did not need to do the step of disconnecting the Di2 battery to get the PC to talk to the system after the firmware debacle. It is a good thing because on my Canyon the battery is not in the seat tube but rather down in bottom bracket and not readily accessible.) Thanks so much!!

Bluetooth through the frame (carbon fiber or metal) I would think would be reduced. Could explain the poor signal strength. Out in the air (up front near the bars) I would think would be a much stronger signal.

Regarding Torque listed on bike, my LBS told me that is a maximum torque, not what you should set it at. I always used to treat it as the required torque and set it to that with my torque wrench, but then the collar around the seatpost snapped...

Good morning Shane, thanks first for all the great video you produce. I have a question concerning Assioma Duo which I have seen in this video. I have as well a Wahoo Element Roam with Assioma Duo pedals. But on the Wahoo setting sensor Page only one pedal will connect. (L) On your video both pedals are connected. How you get the right pedal connected in the Wahoo roam sensor page? I tried and googled everything without success. Thanks for feedback.
Shane Miller - GPLama
Shane Miller - GPLama Рік тому
The left pedal is the master, so that's all you need to connect to. What you're seeing on screen is the two Bluetooth broadcasts from the pedals. ANT+ to the left with the ROAM and you're good. You'll get both L/R as expected.

I have had my d-fly connected and in operation for almost a year.When it stopped working 2 days ago I disconnected/re-connected the cables to the d-fly and the junction box. It worked again but now the hood-top buttons don't work. Could this be a firmware problem and how often does Di2 firmware need updating?

Any suggestions? Thank you

AAAARGH! I watched this video a half dozen times and decided to take the plunge tonight. What's the worst that could happen? I have to unplug the wireless unit and go back to a responsive bike with no bluetooth connection? Nope. Disconnected the unit. Plugged the bike back together and still no response. Nada. So I tried to plug the wireless unit back in and reconnect. I reconnected to the etube app and updated the firmware and then the components. The first component after successfully updating the lights on my bar end blinked but still the bike won't shift. Pressing and holding the button on the bar end doesn't turn the lights back on either :( - I'm not a PC owner so what can I do? Is my only option to take it to my local bike shop? BTW, I updated every component using the etube app successfully and the bike still remains unresponsive. I disconnected everything and then plugged it all back together - still nada. I already have a single speed. I don't need two. 10:46pm UPDATE It appears all may not be lost. When I am connected to the EWU111 unit on my phone the bike is unresponsive, but once I disconnect from the app, the bike shifts normally again! Prayer works! I'm now installing an update to my Wahoo unit so cross your fingers I'll get that connected to the EWU111 unit next.

Sounds like you may have an unresponsive EW-W111. You should be able to click on the Return to Preset and put the bike back to the original configuration.

Hi Shane, Longshot but I don't suppose you know what to do if the "000000" code doesn't work? My brand new unit won't connect to my phone but will do to my Wahoo Bolt?

You'll need a USB link/cable then to perform a few tricks with the E-Tube Windows software to reset that.

Thanks video was useful. I had the same problem with a Canyon bike but it was not possible to disconnect the battery (as in the downtube). Etube app was missing front and rear derailleurs after the EW-WU111 crash. After lots of head scratching, I disconnected the wires into the front and rear derailleurs for a minute and reconnected, hey presto then appeared in the etube app - all sorted.

Shane, as a Wahoo Bolt user would I be correct in saying that the extra data I can get on the head unit with the wireless module is pretty limited? Not being able to see Di2 battery level without deep diving into the sensor menu is a dealbreaker for me. Gear information is useful but not really essential either.

@Shane Miller - GPLama It's not telling that much more than the junction box really though. Not sure I potentially want to go through all the hassle you had just for that. Keep on at them, you did the trick with Varia Radar support!!!!
Shane Miller - GPLama
Shane Miller - GPLama Рік тому
Agreed. I'm always on their case for adding more info (and that Di2 battery field). It will give a warning when it's at 10% though.

Thanks so much - this helped a ton. I tried doing it without disconnecting my battery and it did brick everything. The battery for my Canyon Aeroad is in a super inconvenient place that requires taking the bottom bracket out to access, but luckily I was able to sneak some pliers in there and made it work without having to do major surgery. Thanks for the guidance!

Carbon Fiber is an insulator for wireless signals bluetooth, wifi etc. I was told by Trek dealer las year If the adaptor is inside the frame this may cause poor connection

Shane Miller - GPLama your reviews are valid though. So sadly instead of pushing you out they should be trying to address the problem and maybe Leverage your venue to spread the word on correction to their shortfalls. Given they don’t seem to be addressing their bugs at the least that means more ad revenue to come ;)

I'm not on the Christmas card list of Shimano. Their security flaws with Di2 and their poor excuse for a power meter have me shitlisted. Although these videos do well and UKposts ad revenue from them isn't bad.

Thanks Shane, great video. Are the DI2 fields that can be added to the head unit the same regardless of brand? it's just I noticed you added far more fields to the Garmin unit, is this because the Garmin supports DI2 better? Thanks

It's still pretty sad that even electronic shifting needs wires. IMO there should be an option with a radio in the shifters, wires optional. Brakes IMO should stay hydraulic due to better failure modes and better modulation.

Shane, this and the rest of the “Ewok” series of your videos were great help in getting mine installed configured. Just like yours, my configuration seem to have gone to a good start. Just after starting e-tube (iOS) app, it said it needs to apply an update without even asking for the default passkey and reported update was “successful”. Then it did not accept the pass key at all! I had to start the PC e-tube app, and was able to set my own pass key, and was also able to update the firmware via PC app. Then I was able to setup the Garmin head unit setup and the rest. One funny thing though, even though both iOS and PC apps see the crankset correctly, somehow it’s reported to Garmin head unit wrong (53-34). I’m hoping it will have reset to the correct crankset values in the morning when it has a chance to go to sleep and wake up for my morning ride. Thanks to your trials and tribbleulations ;), I didn’t lose my cool and was able to set the unit up. Thanks again.

Today I picked up my new bike from the local bike shop. Got the Ultegra R8070 groupset wit the ew-wu111 (in-line under the handlebar). After seeing this vid I got a little nervous about connecting and doing the ew-wu111 firmware update. So I decided to connect witht he e-tube program on a windows laptop first. All my components needed a firmware update (guess the LBS couldn't be bothered). I'm happy to report that the firmware of all components, including the ew-wu111, CAN be updated using the charging cable that comes with the R8070 groupset and the windows e-tube program (v3.4.3). Took 5 mins and 45 seconds and....happy days!!!

Shane, has the system been reliable from a connection standpoint? According to the instructions it suggests attaching the junction box up by the handle bars. I am like you and want this to be an internal route. Have you had any issues?

You’ll just need to install it in-line somewhere on the Di2 system.

Carbon fiber absorbs radio waves, so I'm not too surprised that the signal is sketchy when the unit is inside the frame.

I installed the EW-WU111 inline like in this video, the firmware updated, and then the system was bricked. I tried removing the EW-WU111 completely, and the system is still bricked. Anyone have the same issue? Any ideas how to un-brick my DA 9150 Di2?

Hi Shane, May I enquire if the Ultegra Di2 can be used without the ugly junction box (I plan to set it up as a 1x system)? Can one combine it with an XT Di2 rear derailleur (or, alternatively, will an RX derailleur work with a 42 (or 46) -tooth cassette cog)? Also, do you know if the right shifter of Ultegra Di2 can be used with a drop post like, presumably, the GRX? Thank you.
Leo_inter_Hyaenaem
Leo_inter_Hyaenaem 2 роки тому
@Shane Miller - GPLama Thank you, Shane. I hope, they do ditch the extant Di2 technology for something more akin to Sram's. I wonder if the GRX, too, will use cables & junction boxes… Also, a 12 (or more) -gear cassettes have been long overdue by now.
Shane Miller - GPLama
Shane Miller - GPLama 2 роки тому
Best check the ETube compatibility chart. I assume there needs to be a junction box for programming/charging and to manage the system.

Read that changing the password could causing the bricking. I X’d out of that part leaving at 000000 and it worked. Also did the firmware update with the saddle out so the phone was lying on the Bluetooth unit. Anyway - worked well. I like using the hoods to flip between screens and seeing my gearing on the Bolt, so worth it for me. After all that and the money for the unit and extra cable, it’s really is kinda ridiculous that it isn’t just integrated. Kinda cheap/greedy of Shimano. And confusing with the naming conventions. Thanks again for the walk through - not sure I’d have been able to figure it out otherwise
