Hydraulic shifter sys.

a 1/3 to 1/2 pound lighter then other cable shifter systems. Could be cool, just hope it's somewhat affordable.

Sounds cool, but at that price it will just be another boutique part that's obsolete in a couple of years.

... but cable shifting is so simple and cheap and easy to maintain and adjust.

Not sure too many people will be on board to pay more and then have to bleed their system and have difficulty making adjustments.

I'm sure people said the same thing about brakes when they started going hydraulic, and the original hydraulic brakes were crazy expensive too!

yup
when i first started riding i rode my ex-hub's bike, it was a dekerf, and had hydro disc brakes, and i seem to recall the cost per brake was $400. this was in .. 2000 or 2001

Hydraulic brakes on the other hand came with a significant tag line WAY MORE POWER and therefore way better.

The current shifting system works fine this only allows you to lose weight in exchange for lots of cash and some complexity. I think I, and others, would rather buy some carbon wheels once we get up to that kind of price range.

current trend in adjustable seatposts suggests you are wrong: gravity dropper is lighter, cheaper and more reliable than anything that's come on the market in the past 5 years, but no one's drooling over them like they are they for new heavier, pricey and high-maintenance options. new and shiny = teh best!
