That is a new set of tires, an oil change and 3,000 miles worth of gas for the privilege of adjusting them with the push of a button.
I am one-up 99.5% of the time with the only real variables being panniers and luggage full or empty (100# of gear tops), and dirt or pavement.
Am I missing something here? Are there any significant problems going from ESA to the manual adjusters that I might not be considering?
Any advice welcomed.
This is precisely the direction I will be going when my ESAs shit the bed. Simpler, straightforward, and they meet 99% of my riding preferences.
