the etube update, which takes about 3 months to download, seems to have the ability to do something with the SM EWW01 wireless unit. Does anybody know what this is?

I presume it can be placed anywhere on the e tube bus, so therefore it can be hidden. Only question is whether the transmit signal is strong enough.

But if the wireless functions stop here, with the basic gear selection and battery level functions visible on the SCIO, the development is far less impressive.

MORE wires ... more complications. True wireless electronic shifting is at least 5-7 years away according to Shimano reps.

I refuse to get on board until that happens.

In the meantime? My fingers still function.

The pavlovian response to every topic that mentions Di2, is the statement that mechanical is better.
