Default anyone know any auto-electricians

Hi, bit of a long shot, but I'm looking for someone to carry out some wiring modifications to electronic gears on my bike. Need some in-line crimping or connectors sorted. Quite a fiddly job that needs the hand of a skilled sparkie.

I'm thinking auto electricians are perfect for this kind of task, maybe you know one who would love a homer.

Cheers

You can't disappear for ages and then just swan back in asking for help.

Unbelievable.

Now, if you don't know of anyone, go forth and **** off

What about a standard 'good' garage like those Welsh lads at A2B in Al Quoz? I would have thought that a good mechanic would know his way around the electrical stuff?

cheers petal. that's more like it. Ive never heard of them. Ill look them up. Its just a pretty simple (for a good sparky) splice job of a few cables, but I would make a royal **** up of it and the electronic shifters cost a bloody fortune.

Why would you have electronic gears on a bike?

Honest question. I'm curious.

Saw an electronic seat post too in a recent mag.

I've got a lever that locks my forks but that's via cable

cause I can (honest answer)

Actually (and I know your a cyclist so go into a little detail) Di2 is pretty responsive and has a lovely auto/trim function on the FD. Saying that I also run 2013 SRAM red on my S-Works and it has a Yaw FD that also does the same mechanically as opposed to electrically.

Its all good until you get a flat battery or a short circuit climbing a hill

Yes, the ones who are sponsored by shimano do. Those who are sponsored by SRAM run the mechanical red.
