What if I'm just thinking to myself to shift down at the start of a hill. "Get ready to shift around that section. I feel my cadence slowing but don't shift yet.....NOW!!!"
Will the neurotransmitters sense when I really want to shift? Or when it detects ANY thought of shifting?

Next they'll do automatic braking..... *shivers

Answer to a question nobody asked. "sometimes shifting gears is a drag" for who? I've been riding 40 years, and I've never once thought, "Wow, shifting gears is SO tedious."
