wouldn't knock it yet - battery tech is improving all the time - I suspect, like it or not, that in the not too distant future, the most expensive gear will be all electric and the bikes will have integrated systems.newridr said:So we spend thousands of $ on lightweight parts to only to pack on the weight with a battery to power all this crap?
Right. Great idea.
It's how we get great stuff. I understand how silly some things seem - I remember when clusters with more than 5 gears came out, many of us thought they were ridiculous. Does anyone who has ridden a 10 (5X2) speed want to give up indexed 10s to go back?millerinva said:I'm with you - looks like a solution in search of a problem, but engineers need jobs too.
