Thought 105, being a roadie component, doesn't have disc mounts, the equivalent hub from the
hybrid sector uses an MTB hub, 700c rim.
Drop by the LBS and see what they can get for $100 a wheel. dont be too brand focused,
since the bottom line is as you say, economically dictated..
I see some well sealed rubber boot protected hubs on $400 bikes.
the shop should, if prompted, adjust the Hubs, add more grease, hand tension and true
the machine built wheels, and perhaps even offer a re truing in a month or 2..
