Frame difference between mechanical and electrical transmission
I am currently browsing around to find a new frameset.
I intend to use mechanical shifting only, not interested in electrical shifting.
I have never really seen an electrical shifting system for real so I never really witnessed how it is mounted.
I am a little confused with the frame specifications I see:
- some state they are "ready for electrical shifting"
- some state they are *designed* for electrical shifting (and there is another frameset from the same brand that states to be *designed* for mechanical shifting, all other specifications being identical)
- some state nothing at all
I wouldn't worry about getting a 3. since mechanical is still the default system.
I wouldn't worry either about 1. as it only states they are "ready" for electrical.
How about 2. ? in a perfect world I wouldn't worry and get the mechanical one but there are availability differences, several months difference, so *not* discarding the electrical model and using it with mech. is quite tempting...
