A Deeper Look at SRAM's Patent Application For a Wireless Automatic Suspension Controller
I wouldnt mind the batteries really. there are a few other things to think about. 1. price, everything with a battery for bikes is stupidly expensive. those AXS sets, the wireless dropper you name it. theyre making BIG money off you. If anything breaks you can forget cheap repairs as well. no cheap deraillers anymore. you have to buy the electric one. and they all cost a fortune. 2. standards. this isnt a problem today regarding batteries. but i bet in a few years there will be more groupsets etc in the market. I seriously question if old batteries will fit new components. knowing the bike industry by now. this isnt unlikely.

Review: SRAM GX Eagle AXS Wireless Drivetrain
@mior: i currently run xt 12spd. But if i ever mess up the derrailler for instance i could buy a deore level and itll work with my shifter and cassette. With this you cant. With gx eagle axs you allready have the cheapest part. And its a lot of money for a new one.

Review: SRAM GX Eagle AXS Wireless Drivetrain
To me its not the amount i need to pony up to get it. but what itll cost if something fails. sounds stupid but its something i think is overlooked a lot. you cannot repair your bike cheap if its fitted out with all this electric stuff.

Review: Nukeproof's $563 Horizon V2 Wheels
i checked the price for me here. about €450,-. If i wanted anything else id pay up to €650 to €700 for something hopetech with notubes duke or dt rims. so in the price department its not bad at all. thing for me is that 450 bucks is a relatively big spend anyways. so id rather save up a bit more for the hope hubs and the nicer rims. but if youve just fucked up a set at the bikepark or whatever and you need cheap replacement this is the set to go for i quess. theyre heavy, but you can trust them. having that said id never put enduro wheels on my bike. i ride XC
