Electronic Shifting On A Downhill Bike... Oh Yeah!

The guys at Madison, a UK based cycling company, have fitted the Shimano Di2 electronic shifting system to the Saracen Myst downhill bike. You might have heard about the  Di2 bodged on to some XC bikes previously but this is the first time the DH prototype shifter has been used.

Obviously a load of testing needs to be done on the durability the device for downhill use, but could this be the future of gear changing?

I'd be very keen to see if anybody has done this conversion in New Zealand.
