    I've always used Campagnolo on my road bikes. But this might make me switch. Thanks for the post.

    Di2 is too expensive for cross, if your'e going to race with it. A muddy course with grass will rip out your derailleur, which is the weak link in a drivetrain.

    You're right. Don't buy anything you can't afford to replace.

    Ironic. At Masters Worlds this past January, despite having both disc-brake race and pit bikes, I couldn't help thinking during the final that a single speed or fixed gear with no brakes would have been a better choice in that thick, frozen goop!

    Those Di2 Hydro levers can also control an Alfine 11. I have big plans for my Vaya as soon as they become available!
