Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Misanthrope would be much more accurate. I don't like you. And you have plenty of company.

Anything can have problems, but I've had far more of them with my Shimano 11sp mechanical bike's drivetrain than with my 11sp Di2 bike.

You probably shouldn't knock it 'til you've tried it...And I'll bet that you've not really tried it.
