Electronic shifting is an upgrade forced on us like Shimano's Dual-Control and low-normal rear derailleurs.
Unlike, let's say disc brakes, there is no massive improvement to the performance or reliability of shifting. If you don't clean your drivetrain, it is not going to work well.
Believe it or not, this is the first forum I ever joined.
I was going to take Yojimbo, which is a much more popular Kurosawa film than Sanjuro, the sequel. For that reason, and that there is a bike shop in Chicago with that name, I ended up with Sanjuro.

Actually, there is some circumstantial evidence that there would be more gun restrictions.
The Assault Weapons Ban passed when Congress and the President were Democratic.
Obama has endorsed the Chicago gun ban. Holder said we should "brainwash" children about thinking about guns: 302 Found...
I remember my last regular exposure to stupid racists. He was a parts clerk in a small garage, and his racism permeated every thing he did.

For the winter when I can no...
Not surprised he poo-poo'ed Obama fighting skills.
Basketball is one of the few recreation sports with lots of movement and eye-hand coordination skills.
And I've seen bball games get down right nasty.
Obama has a huge physical advantage here.
I use Strava for another reason: scouting out new routes.
If you go it alone, knowing exactly how long a section is critical to route finding. And I can tell if a section is up or down based on elevation profiles.
Connie Anderson didn’t know what was bothering her 17-year-old son, a Baltimore-area high school senior with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. He was usually a diligent student, but his grades...
