I'm a self-teaching geek. teaching because that process is far from over. I don't know a ton, but what I know, I'll share, and I won't answer a question if I'm not confident I'm correct.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
For what it's worth, the GebioMized system is awesome. Michael Fuhrmeister at GebioMized has been very helpful with everything we have needed related to the pressure mapping software and the scanner. I think he would be happy to help with this, assuming the data isn't proprietary.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@jimirings That was my interpretation as well. I have nothing against the OP, and attempted to answer his question, but I don't think it will be useful to anyone else in future, which is my key metric as to its utility.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@Rider_X The OP did not ask a question about saddles or bike fit. He asked a question about a source of information for a research project. I did my best to supply that info, but I don't think that the question itself is relevant here.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@NeilFein The question is asking for a database of pressure mapping info on one particular brand of saddle. I agree that the end result of the research he proposes would be useful. I do not agree that the source for the database is useful to anyone not conducting that research.

Manuals for Shimano Di2, both road and mountain, are available at si.shimano.com.

The communication protocol it uses is ANT+, not bluetooth. Since there is a wire connecting the derailleur and shifter, there is no need for wireless communication there.

@PeteH Dura Ace 9070, the latest Shimano Di2, doesn't and can't communicate wirelessly between shifter and derailleur. There is an accessory called D-Fly which allows limited wireless data transmission to a connected cycling computer which has been designed to accept it. It also allows buttons on the shifter to control the screen on the cyclometer.

It won't affect the shifting.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the required knowledge to answer it is very specific, and not likely available to anyone outside of the Brooks or GebioMized companies. I would suggest directing questions about the data availability to Michael Fuhrmeister at GebioMized. The company was started as a research division of the Sports University at Freiburg in Germany, so I'm sure they would be interested in furthering the research in this matter. It also has no long term benefit as an answer for future users of this site, in my opinion.

While GebioMized is an excellent system for this purpose, I'm not sure this question is a good fit for the Bicycles.SE site. It requires specialized knowledge, and if answered will not benefit anyone on the site other than the OP. That said, I do think the research itself would be useful.

comment When truing a wheel, is it enough to only use a tension meter, and not a truing stand?
Add to this that a basic truing stand is usually cheaper than a decent tensiometer. I think that there is something missing in the premise here.
