Both my AXS der's have taken a beating! Huge hits and gouges, and still shifts flawlessly.

Yep ive hit mine on rocks hard enough to knock the battery out and bent my derailleur hanger, and it shifts like new. Would never go back to mechanical.

How's the chain slap on it though? I always see the clutches wear out on any axs derailleur....

Mine is ok so far but ive heard similar things.

Would a Yeti SB140 be a good "jib" bike?

I agree with you completely. I think it is a dumb system personally.

Curious how long they plan on supporting the technology before it becomes obsolete.

Also if you are tying your fork to the app I would assume they would have your fork "usage" and maintenance history.

Not sure about minority status but I agree. I don't see appeal in having to keep things charged or installing updates eventually. Cables are fine.

I’m not quite sold on the flight attendant stuff just yet, but my AXS stuff is irreplaceable. Love my AXS!

Haven’t tried flight attendant, but I did try E:i a few years ago. From chats with sram reps it sounds similar, but the system is lead by the position/speed of the bike, rather than the initial hit to the fork.

Whilst riding it is wasn’t particularly impressed to be honest, didn’t feel like it was doing anything extra. Then I went back to a bike that didn’t have it and it was pretty clear that it was doing stuff, the bike just felt less efficient, as I was just leaving the suss fully open all the time.

Not sure I’d pay top dollar to have it back, mind…
