Do you suffer more when you train, or cannot train?

The pictures are definitely photoshopped. The tone and shading of the buttons and indicators don't match the rest of image. Even if it were true, shimano wouldn't have such a 'finished' prototype at this stage. Also, the linguistics of the interview in the article don't make sense.

April fools. :lol:

You want a real automatic transmission bike - here you go... ready for a protour win out of the box:
