Hello,
I am looking for a little help here. I am confused. These 2 different bikes both have 105 gears, but one is silver and one is black. Which is better? Is one last years model?

I have checked Shimanos website and i am predicting that the Cell bike bellow with the 10 speed is newer and the 9 speed on ebay is last years 2004-2005 model.

Rear Derailleur Shimano 105.
Shifters Shimano 105 STI.
Sprockets Shimano 105, 10 speeds 12-25T

Their isn't any difference between the black version and the silver version, most people prefer the silver version but some people prefer the black so they have both. 2005 was the last year the 105 groupset was made in 9 speed. This year it's a 10 speed groupset. Therefore, yes, the cell bike is newer and the one on ebay is last years model.
