just did some quick math... by using a 105 groupo with an ultegra cassete.. the build of the bike would only be1/4 pound heavier then a full ultegra.. any reason not to buiild it up this way? i mean.. 1/4 pound more weight.. but a few hundred bucks more in my wallet too.. raceable? durable? honestly guys.. lemme know.. :) thanks

There's only about $125 difference in the price of the two groups. Any additional savings would come from other parts being cheaper.

Sure 105 is raceable and durable. But the cost difference is small.

Personally, I get campy daytona 10 speed in this price range. It's usually priced the same as Ultegra.
