The eebrakes are great. Spendy but great. The cables and housing that will come w/ the levers are good quality Shimano, they should be fine. The braze-on derailleur is offered with a clamp because...

Frankly, I donít notice a difference. The big advantage of electronic shifting is that once you tell it to shift, it shifts quickly and perfectly. The same canít be said of mechanical, especially...
