Tons of 10-speed Ultegra and 105 cassettes out there. Since cassettes are wear items, I rarely find it cost effective to get DA unless I find a huge discount.

Last race of Sac CX this year was on a beach that featured a dune run up. Probably 30m of carrying your bike up a steep dune with soft sand. It took a toll.

I don't think there's any reason you couldn't put a 7 speed cassette on an 11-speed freehub, as long as you had enough spacers. Or you could get a wheel-on trainer like a Kinetic Road Machine.

Love it. Our Monday night rides are done at “COVID pace.” For this group that’s around 2.5 w/kg.
