Anybody know if there is a difference in the longevity of these two different hubsets?

I think that Ultegra has a superior hub sealing mechanism but, with periodic care that costs next to nothing, either will last a very very long time.

lol......I just checked their weight. Ultegra hubset (32 hole) is measly 11 grams lighter than 105 (36 hole) hubset!
On weight alone.......105 and ultegra are basically identical. Unless there is something I don't know about 105 seems like a better value. Why pay more money for insignificant 11 gram reduction!!

Proper maintenance is the key to bearing life.
