I learned to shift with downtube friction shifters, then went to DT index shifters, and now Record ergo 10 shifters. I have been very proficient in determining when to shift, how many gears to shift, and in executing the shifts. I do not have a bike with electronic shifting as of yet. That I happen to ask questions/make observations concerning how well the design of an electronics shifting system provides the flexibility that it could (under my proposed system, you can have as many or as few dump point as you want, so you wouldn’t lose anything vs. a system with only one dump point, as that could be one of your options) does not mean I don’t know how to ride or shift efficiently and effectively.

But thank you very much for your concern.
