It may never be affordable for us either but we know how easy it is for someone to build a bike from composite unobtainium and sell it to us because it is lighter and easier to form. If the system is dependable and affordable I am sure some riders will be willing to buy it simply because it is lighter. If it is out of our range then only a few will be showing up and I may never even see one in action.
My fridge is frost free, But the old ones do wear out and I do not believe you can not buy one that is not frost free anymore, If they were avaliable I probably would have, Same situation with television I do not believe there are any with knobs. and no my oven is not self cleaning. Like I said before I have never owned an auto transmission vehicle. I do not see anything at all wrong with improvement and advancement but I believe that people should always have a choice as to what they want. I think the new components are great and I can see where they would be good for some purpose, But I would not get them and would have no need for them. I just do not want things to get like they have with everything else and your choice goes away.
