What's dropping wednesday?

Slowman's weekly e-mail references an anticipated component drop Wednesday.

Based on SRAM's already unveiling an XO Eagle AXS groupset I'm hoping for a Force AXS grouppo.

Any other potentials?

my main concern is that our sport is too cheap and too uncomplicated, so i'm hoping that garmin will introduce a new wireless disc-braking system that is controlled with a new watch that syncs with a new mobile app that is also a social network and a ride-sharing service.

Don’t forget drone delivery of your gels mid ride.

Something incompatible with anything that's gone before or will come afterwards. Just to try make us throw away more perfectly useable and efficient equipment.
If SRAM then 50% more expensive and 30% worse than Shimano's equivalent. If Campag, 100% more and 100% worse...

This seems about right if the leaks in the link above are true. Force AXS etap for $3k. Includes power but still. Pretty expensive...

LOLOL--for Australians, the SRAM Force AXS is $4300 for hydro disc! $5000 if you want the powermeter. Shimano must be having a good chuckle at this. Ultegra is TWO THOUSAND dollars cheaper at Bikebug.com in Aus.

At least for me, there are literally no positives in the new AXS groupsets over ultegra di2. Really can't figure out what SRAM is thinking with this. Don't see it going well long term.
