Kick in a few more bucks and get a new bike with new 105.
That also would have been the 5700-series 105, which was the first year that it went to under-the-tape routing. 5700/6700 had a reputation for eating shifter cables and it doesn't shift as nicely as the generation before or after (which also made the jump to 11-speed).
