Inspired by the recent disc brake release really. However, I was reading that they're an 11 speed shifter.
What makes them 11 speed? Surely, it's just an up and down button with nothing in there that makes it 11 speed?
Where's the "brain" in electronic shifting? The bit that says how much for each button press and when to stop?
Have people started "hacking" these yet? Surely a bit of software tinkering could make it 9 speed or any speed you want.
Or am I mad?
