I borrowed my sister-in-law's Di2 bike. I liked it. It is definitely an improvement. I just can't afford that stuff yet. Maybe one day it will be the norm.

Agreed. A lot of "smart" gadgets are nice, and the enhancements help. But somethings don't need to be smarter. Imagine a bluetooth chef's knife. I can't, either.
