I don't believe I said or implied what you claim. I simply offered my views on possible causes for the push for technological developments in bicycling manufacture. I gather by the tenor of you response that you neither agree or approve. That's ok with me.

Long story short, why do i want to spend 3k on electronics when im perfectly happy with my campy record and sram red mechanical.

problem with the moots was it was setup for electronic shifting only . Which i thought meant could do either mechanical or electronic… NOT!!

bottom line, ended up with a super duper deal leftover specialized Crux frame and sram reds. Im a happy camper.

PSA: When you pick up something at the pharmacy that says “External use Only”, don’t drink it.
