Ahhhh, go away with your batteries Shimano. We buy bikes for more important trips than those we might make to the bike shop, to replace special batteries. We don’t want to hear the dream bike we buy this year, with your battery change gear hub, is useless 5 years from now, because you’re no longer selling that type of battery. I don’t care if it’s rechargeable, long life, harmless to landfill, cheaper on eBay. I just want to know it’s been shoved up all your executives’ nose holes, and can’t be dislodged. Pardon my uncharacteristic loss of composure, but cycling is my refuge from manufacturers’ schemes. This really has made me exceedingly cross.
