It was intended as a fairly open ended query to spark a discussion. However the main idea was based around how technically 'good' the systems are.

I will bet a significant amount of money that that groupset is sram red.
I thought it was Microshift.

People can only judge your post, not your intentions.
As you're new to the board I'm giving this as some helpful advice, please take it as such.
Make your question clear.
Back to the OP. Please make your topic title and question more specific. Your current question is so broad that this will become an 80+ page mud slinging, dead horse beating contest.
'Tape was made to wrap your GF's gifts, NOT hold a freakin tire on.'
DI2 and EPS both will fail at some point like any other mechanical and electronic component.
There were plenty of failures before this and there will be more after this.
It's just that some failures happen at the wrong time to the wrong guy.
Would you have know about this had this been someone else on the team that was in the gruppetto just trotting along? The answer would be no. There are no cameras there and no one cares about 10-20 guys trucking up a hill at a less then stellar pace. A mechanical can happen there as well. A bike change occurs there, no one sees it, no one reports it.
Now if the team reports all component failures and the reason for the failure only then you would have some conclusive data of how well the component performs.
Everything else is based on hearsay, non-conclusive situations, random bits of information that do not offer conclusive evidence or patters of failures.
To the OP, I'd say so. Di2 I'd really good, but the EPS is, too. Between them, it would probably be personal preference. I tnink prefer EPS.
The company is also still a small family-owned affair. I would much rather support that type of company than an industrial behemoth like Shimano or a glitzy marketing-oriented company like SRAM. Considering how little Campy markets, it is a miracle that they are still around -- and probably a testament to their quality. An interesting article on them: http://www.bicycling.com/news/featured- ... talian-job
