    No, but I've got a NIB 9spd ultegra that I need to get rid of if you're interested.

    I would say they are equally durable. The 105 gets some more advanced tooth profiling to aid shifting. It's also lighter.

    Would that even matter with 10spd bar ends?

    Absolutely. Bar ends are more tolerant of a bad setup but that doesn't mean they won't benefit from higher grade components. I rode a mountain bike a while back that was set up with 970 XTR drivetrain but it used pauls thumb shifter conversion. It was probably one of the best shifting bikes I've ever ridden.

    No. Friction shifters do not have indexing

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
