    New Shimano Di2BS Hands Free Shifting!!!!

    Di2BS removes the traditional shift buttons on the levers, instead embedding a pair of pressure-sensitive switches in the saddle so, rather than tapping away with your fingers, now all you do is shift your weight from one side to another to change gear.

    There's also an upgrade if your a$$ is too fat to activate the small pressure sensitive buttons.

    Simple. You'd drop the whole cassette quickly to the smallest cog. You'd need the bigger gear to go with the sudden acceleration caused by the massive thrust released by the fart. Shimano always thinks of everything !

    I bet they could incorporate a thrust meter into the sensors to determine the amount of thrust generated by the offending flatulence and only upshifting the necessary number of cogs so not to alter your cadence!
