SRAM has cut into the component market but Shimano isnít going to be on the ropes anytime soon. Assuming that half to two thirds of SRAMís market share is suspension related, that leave 15 to 20% of the component market...giving Shimano 80 to 85% of the component market. And even that portion of the component market is mostly on the mountain bike side. SRAMís portion of the road component market is diminishingly small.
Again, thanks for continuing to correct your erroneous "SRAM's market share is "fairly small." bit.

Nope, I pointed him to the AXS link, he read the Shimano link (which you're now quoting too - please pay attention), and I pointed him once again to the AXS link.

It's right there in black and white, if you care to spend the time to actually read the article. No battery or software changes needed for AXS to mix road/gravel/mtb.

You're moving the goal posts.

Here is your false claim that I replied to:

"modern mountain and road shift and brake levers arenít compatible with the drivetrain and brake components."

To summarize:

Modern SRAM mountain and road shift systems and brake levers are compatible with the drivetrain and brake components.
Modern Shimano mountain and road shift systems and brake levers are compatible with the drivetrain and brake components.
