comment Is it possible to buy a frameset from Trek that isn't listed separately?
@Batman: that Jake the Snake looks fairly close to what I'm after, thanks. I can't tell anything about Di2 routing on the 2016 webpage for it. As for touring with Di2, well, yes, it's not mainstream but that's OK with me. I'm not riding through India with this thing.

As for why put Di2 on a CrossRip, it's simply because I want electronic shifting on an aluminum frame usable for light touring. If you have a better suggestion of a frame to use for that, please do tell me. I strongly considered the Planet X London Road, which is sold as a frameset, but unfortunately that bike's smallest size is too large (I need something around 48cm). Thank you for your answer.

comment What size is the tiny ball bearing used in SRAM brake caliper quick release detents?
You're right that SRAM is an American company, but most (all?) of their hardware is metric-sized, because they're compatible with Shimano and the rest of the world. I'm sure a 5/64" ball would fit too, if you can find one--my local supplier didn't stock 64ths.

comment Is the XTR Di2 battery compatible with Ultegra Di2?
@TrevorH: I didn't end up trying it, but I think it will work. See my comments on Batman's answer below for more details.

comment How to tell if a new pair of brake calipers will fit my wheel, tire, and frame?
Whether they fit or not depends on the bike. The real question here is: "Does this bike require long-reach calipers?" You should be able to inspect your existing calipers (or post the exact model here) to find out.

comment Would a quality derailleur improve a cheap bike
@RoboKaren: you don't need to break the chain and re-connect it. You can instead remove the bolts through the jockey wheels to disassemble the derailleur cage enough to get it around the chain and then reassemble by putting the bolts back in. I replaced a derailleur this way as a child with little difficulty.
