Now that is interesting. IMO, that beats electric on some levels, mainly not having to charge. And beats cables on responsiveness and cable stretch and wear. Low on ability to make repairs on the road (all methods fail this at some level unless you happen to have a spare cable and hey why did it break in the first place?!). Still a cable guy for now. I'm just not an early adopter. Or a middle adopter.

Do the weight savings really matter with the current min. bike weight?
