Amazon is full of spare non-original cables for all my other electronic devices but trying to do a Di2 setup and the only cables I can find are originals from Shimano at a minimum of £22 each. Anyone know why?
All the cables are is a bit of wire and rubber coating, so there is no way they cost that much.
Is it that Shimano have patents and are very good at enforcing them? Is it that not enough are sold that it isn’t worth cloning them? I’d have thought if someone sold them at £15 then people would buy them and compared to cost price it should still make money.
