Topic - Electronic shifting

Indy - on 07 Oct 2012
Was in Evans yesterday doing some more research on my new commuting bike and while waiting to be served I heard a salesperson 'raving' about an own brand bike that had electronic shifters (di2?) but was under 2k.

I've seen people on here talking about it but the costs are astronomical with just the groupset costing more than twice my budget for the whole bike.

SO, can I ask.... does electronic shifting add anything or is it just companies desperately trying to get one over each other or just the need to provide something new to spend money on?

I've never found changing gear that challenging to be honest. Also I have to wonder about maintenance and repairs while on the road.
