Straying off topic a bit, but I wonder if we will see mechanical (and rim brake) versions of the top tier group-sets go away completely?
Seems like electronic shifting is must-have on top tier bikes now,and nearly every top-end bike from big manufactures is disc brake. I know some pros are still on rim brakes (and maybe some on mechanical shifting?), but I'd be curious to see recent consumer sales numbers on mechanical & rim brake versions of SRAM Red and Shimano DA.

The mechanical Ultegra groupset will become the nostalgia build.
