    Electronic shifting?

    Have you guys read the big discussion going on in the mechanics forum on electronic shifting?
    Here!
    Trade your shifters and cables, for a battery, a couple sensors and motors, and switches!


    Next we'll argue the credibility of the XTR's digital bluetooth signal as compared to XO's High frequency RF signal.

    In some ways it makes more sense than the Shimano Airlines constant-loss system. Although I would think some sort of multi-position solenoid (if that's possible) would be better/lighter than a motor setup. I could really see it being the schizz for shifting a gearbox - - with a little wireless shifter pod

    Could you just see the fun some hacker could have with a trackside transceiver?

    Ha reminds me of the old CB radio days, we would clip the mod limiters, turn down the key wattage and get those am boxes spewing harmonics and spurrious emissions. Then stick about a thousand watt amp behind 'em. The poor kids in the neighborhood were wondering why their RC cars kept running into walls.
    Could even open automatic doors at buisnesses!

    For some reason, that brought back Charlie Daniels' Uneasy Rider to my mind . . . .

    Ah, the CB radio days; our first telephone 'system' on our property was a CB hooked to a regulated power supply - - so I could call my neighbor who had a phone.
