Personally if they're the same price I'd definitely choose etap.
To be honest, I prefer the way that Di2 performs (shifts faster and cleaner). The advantage with eTap is no wires. Which is why I have it on my Ritchey Breakaway, and then on the Madone I just set up (and part of that was just to make it easier build.
I'm able now to adjust to to the different shifter pattern pretty seamlessly. Not having tried it on the TT bike, not sure which pattern I would prefer. My guess is that like with road, I'd adjust to either.
honestly, I couldn't tell you (though I'm sure Google can). I'd imagine the battery is going to make it a little heavier, but I'd guess it's negligible.
Personally, I will never go back to mechanical shifting on any bike that really matters. I rode all winter on my CAAD10 with 10sp Red, and it was really nice to get back on the good bike!
