    Ahem. ;)

    Why buy the "best that you can afford"?

    I can afford DuraAce or Campy Record. I usually ride around on 105.

    Sapim CX Ray spokes are not worth the extra cost - their aerodynamics save you about 1W of drag at 30 mph.

    Yep. About the only difference I can see between Ultegra and 105 10-speed cassettes other than the color is the 105 uses a steel lockring while the Ultegra uses a lighter alloy one.
