    I have four SW-R9150 switches soldered into a single two cable wire that then joins into a single junction end. Four switches, one junction. It really feels like it shouldn't work but it does. There must be lots of brains in the system, because you don't have to use any.

    When you are programming it, the etubes software counts two lots of two types of switches (nominally left and right) but it actually identifies and assigns actions to each switch by your clicking on the relevant switch so the left and right thing doesn't matter at all in practice. Ask me how I know!
    Wow, so any number of switches soldered together will work? I was just going to add a second (albeit oversized) set of satellite shifters to the drops to replicate the SW-R610.

    Yep. Doesnít seem like it should but it does. As long as they all have chips (and the satellite things do) Di2 has the smarts to just work it out.

    And take the enormous plastic body off the SW 9150 satellite switches and they are almost small. Not sure what Shimano was thinking there!

    Good idea. How did you break them open without damaging them?
