I've had Dave Scotts with both the Ultegra 600 components and the Shimano 105 components. I've never had a bike with better shifting or braking than the 105 version. Shimano had studied customer feedback on the Dura-Ace and Ultegra STI shifters and brakes, and the 105 version reflected what had been learned. You would have to spend major bucks to buy a 2007 model road bike that has a better quality of ride, handling, braking and shifting than your "new" Dave Scott.
