Just installed one in my 8 year old's drop handlebar bike

I put one of these of my son's drop handlebar bike, I installed the twin strand version so he can shift from different hand hold positions. For kids manipulating drop bar levers is so difficult, he used to be reluctant to change gear and swerved around doing so. I feel this button shifting product is what Archer should have focused on in the first place. I wish it came with a gear number display, its hard to know when you are at the end, there is not even a noise, and there is scope I think for more, such as cadence sensor connection showing cadence in next up and down gear, and even auto gear changing, that would be game changing for kids and even many adults. Competing companies are not even offering button shifters, it's so sad, the only way to get buttons is to spend a lot of money on Shimano or SRAM, and they not for kids and no interest in cadence displays or auto changing.

new instalationthis

this is the fourth group i have installed.had a little problem setting the sprockets on the app but everything works ok now.the big problem is where i feel the most comforble with the blip buttons.this is a personal thing and i will have to work it out

Easy set up: Runs flawless

Everything was great except UPS. It will not affect you if you order on Monday. Takes Archer two days to package and UPS three days to get it to you. Otherwise weekends they don’t run. At least usps packages still travel during the week. Choose FedEx or usps. The components are awesome. Easy setup and truly a great idea. You keep all your shifters and just add this box and blips. I have four places to shift from. If you don’t plan to use but two shifter blips, don’t choose four. Hard to find two other places to use them.

D1x more accurate than index shifters.

From https://www.protomatix.com/EBIKE.htm
Allowed a short run of cable /housing. The favored and less expensive non electronic derailleur does not need to be changed and shifting performance was improved dramatically. The system was easy to set up with the Archer components app.

Works flawlessly!

I’ve used the D1X Gen2 with the MFR remote for about seven months. The D1X has been flawless, providing excellent shifts with no issues. I highly recommend this component; it just works.

I was running a stock SRAM Apex groupset for a 1-by-11. Pulling out the old shift cable, attaching the supplied D1X shift cable in the stock Bodden tube for my bike, and then mounting the D1X to the frame took about 10 minutes. 

I mounted MFR remote buttons by cutting appropriate-sized holes through the two hoods and slipping the buttons under the hoods. I then ran the cables to the middle and put the handlebar tape over the top, taking about an hour. Plugging in cables and attacking the remote took less than a minute.

I threw the bike in the stand, powered on the D1X, downloaded the app for the iPhone, connected via Bluetooth to the D1X, and selected 11 gears. Getting it fully adjusted via the app for flawless shifts took about 15 to 20 minutes, including setting the multi-shift option and default gear to limp home if the battery dies.

Disconnecting the app from the DX1 and then turning on the MFR remote and pairing it to the D1 X was straightforward and took less than a minute.

Overall, installing this component was very easy, required no special tools, and only took as long for me because I custom-fit the shift buttons. Dollar for dollar it was the best purchase I have ever made for the drivetrain.
