I had an intense dislike for sram, used there parts under duress. Honest hatred! Rode shimano for 20 years, xtr, xt and dura ace. Moved to axs xx1 on my mtb, 30 days later sold my dura ace roadbike and now ride force axs. Trust me, I did a 180 turn to sram axs and won't go back to a cable. 1000km on a battery is not a plug in issue. It is life changing. Such evolution is like electric windows in your your car and v brakes on a mtb.
