Headwinds are tough, but I've never had an infinitely long ride!

comment headwind when riding in a loop
I'm skeptical about the relevance of "sailing". For any significant power gained you'd have to lean over really hard to counter the sideways force. Land yachts have three wheels and a wide (6ft+) wheel base for good reason!

comment “Creaking” noise from headtube/handlebar
Put your head close to the head tube and try to recreate it. You may be able to locate the sound more precisely. I thought my stem/head tube was causing a noise, but when I listened closely discovered it was the QR skewer/fork interface. When riding these sound the same.

comment Shimano Ultegra vs Shimano Sora
I agree that 105 may be a good compromise, but this answer could be improved if you can describe the comparison to Sora (which presumably would be significant).

Well, 32 is between 28 and 42, so well within the range.
