I wait (for quite some time now) for new Canyon Aeroad, which is believed to come sooner rather than later now. One decision ahead of me, except of the paint scheme, is if I go for mechanical vs di2, which raises the price significantly.
I live in the place which is flat as a pancake and will occasionally travel to hilly areas, but have been using mechanical in high mountains already and there was nothing to complain about for me. One thing though - I plan to adapt the bike to triathlons with clip-on tri extension and i have been thinking with di2 I could perhaps mount additional di2 shifters on the clip-on, so I don’t have to change my position every time i want to switch the gear.
Please challenge (or support) my thinking, as the price difference is making di2 build a little stretch for me so I’m really looking for the value here (not only for 2% of smoother gear changes or easier gear alignment).
