There is a place for Sora! My road bikes have higher end brifters and I much prefer them. But my winter/commuter bike has Sora and I NEED it then. When riding with very thick gloves or mittens, I don't have the dexterity for the brifters, but the thumb lever on Sora is easy.

Just try shifting down to the small chain ring with, say, Ultegra brifters whilst wearing a thick pair of ski mittens.
