Wasn't a fan of original eTap's reach adjustment, it just pre-tensioned the brake cable. Now that I'm on eTap HRD, I'm a lot happier. The brake lever reach adjustment actually just hinges the handle toward you, but the lever throw / contact point adjustment is separate.

Nothing aesthetic about SRAM stuff. Ugliest group out there along with the new Dura Ace with that hideously gigantic rear derailleur.LOL
Hate to agree, but i feel the same way. Whatever they come out with, they need help with its appearance. They need to black out E-Tap pronto.
eTap is actually the first SRAM road group that I find pleasing to the eye, the silver/black looks good and its obviously pretty clean without cables. I'm a diehard Shimano guy but I think its better looking than R91xx.

Agreed. The other problem is that while Force looks okay, Rival and Apex look awful. It's almost like they purposely made them look crap to try and push people to Red.
Even with the double with have compact, mid compact and standard.
I'd expect 3 cassette and crank sizes hopefully covering a similar spread.
I love the look of 1X.

So for mechanical Red I'd like to see it get lighter to maintain and emphasize its point of difference, but I don't see that happening.
What would be good would be an eTap v2 that undercuts the weight of mechanical... put the batteries on a cortisol diet.
