Twelve-speed Di2 Front Derailleurs do not have any limit bolts, so installing the derailleur and setting the limits is different from what you're used to. Don't worry, though, it's easy! I'll show you how to install the 12-speed Di2 front derailleur, and set its limits and micro-adjustment.
The FD-R9250 is Shimano's new 12 speed Di2 Front Derailleur, to be used with the semi-wireless R9250 groupset.
Wireless, but wired
Twelve-speed Di2 components are wireless, so what is a wire doing here? The new Di2 system is only semi-wireless, meaning that the derailleurs are still plugged into the battery, but the shifters send their shift commands wirelessly.
This 12-speed front derailleur is meant to be used with a 12-speed road rear derailleur. It will not work with 11-speed derailleurs or MTB derailleurs.
