Note: Nobody is asking Shimano to make a voice activated gear shift. Why? Because it doesn't really make any sense.

I don't believe I said or implied what you claim. I simply offered my views on possible causes for the push for technological developments in bicycling manufacture. I gather by the tenor of you response that you neither agree or approve. That's ok with me.

So it's decided then.

It certainly is for me. You can pay what you like.

absolutely.

when i retired last year i decided to buy anither frame from my buddy’s bikeshop.

so he had a leftover moots ti that i could have got an extreme deal on. As a retired racer, and and working and building bikes over the years, had to get smarter on electronic shifting. Long story short, why do i want to spend 3k on electronics when im perfectly happy with my campy record and sram red mechanical.

problem with the moots was it was setup for electronic shifting only . Which i thought meant could do either mechanical or electronic… NOT!!

bottom line, ended up with a super duper deal leftover specialized Crux frame and sram reds. Im a happy camper.

PSA: When you pick up something at the pharmacy that says “External use Only”, don’t drink it.
