Wondering if peeps would actually go for AXS if price was not involved? I see it from both sides
-You have to charge your bike - this seems really annoying. I ride my bike with stuff slightly out all the time and think...I better fix that when I get home. Remembering to charge your derailleur seems counter to the simplicity of a bicycle.
-If anything stops working on the trails it is an expensive and difficult piece of kit to jerry-rig
-If anything breaks, it will be almost impossible to find any replacement parts in any store anywhere
-1st generation kit often has serious growing pains. I know they claim it is future proof but I remember when XTR brake levers were also shifters (mountain STI). Where did that go?
