Sorry for posting such a silly question but i want some new calipers and the Ultegras are good value at the moment. I have a 105 Black groupset on the bike but the calipers are Tektros in black. Should i go Ultegra Grey or Silver or just get some 105s in Black that are only slightly cheaper to buy?

    Having used both, personally I'd go Ultegra as they do feel better, but 105 are also fine.

    Just change the pads
    Yellow is the new Black.

    is this just a cosmetic question?

    if you go for ultegra i'd go for grey as its quite a darkish matt grey so would probably look better with black 105.

    LOL - Yes not sure i phrased the question correctly but this is a question of cosmetics not functionality! :lol:

    I've got a mix of black 105 and glossy grey Ultegra on my bike and it matches up pretty well. The grey is pretty dark.

    Function over form so go for Ultegra in the grey.
  • Ive got 105 in Black on one of my bikes and Grey Ultegra on another. IMO the Grey Ultegra stuff looks nicer and will match ok.
