If you see the new SRM unit post some pics.

Shimano electronic shifting, very nice. How many are outfitted?

Radio Freddy said...

CAW - There were a lot of SRMs but none wireless.

Spokejunky - This bike belonged to Fabian Wegmann and was the only one I saw built with this version of DA. The mechanics said next season will be the season for electronic.

Very nice! I'm sure they will debut at an affordable price. It's also nice to see that the cables are all completely hidden.

I don't know how to send PM, so I guess I can only cotnct you through here.
I'd like to ask for permission to publish your shimano eda pics in arueda.com, of course I would quote this blog as the source.

electronic shifting is lame... A bicycle should be a stand-alone device. No batteries. I suppose SRMs, computers, etc take batteries but they are measuring devices, not contributing to the basic operation of the bike. I wonder if the UCI will get involved since they sometimes seem to introduce rules to preserve the "traditions" of the sport.
Imagine having to plug your bike in to recharge every couple days?
