One of the advantages to electronic shifting wired or wireless is that it solves the crappy shifting some bikes have due to a tortured mechanical cable routing. My neighbours Trance and my Bronson work poorly with Shimano mechanical and need the fancy polymer coated Shimano cable to work well. Even my XX1 works a lot better on the Bronson with those slick cables. That’s a lot of coin though. I had DI2 on my cross bike and it was really good. But not that much better than mechanical other than you never need to change shift cables when they get dirty and cause slow shifting.
