    Build up ?

    Going to build my first bike over the fall months. Going to go large hardtail Chinese carbon. Not sure which manufacturer yet, but from those who have gone down this rd b4 do you see any issues with me using one of these 2x10 xt sets from Merlin?

    Any other suggestions in that price range?

    I would prefer to just by a group set with least from a drivetrain perspective.

    I have pair of arch with hope 29er wheels already, so drivetrain and brakes, front fork, frame plus the extras (seat, handlebar, etc...)

    The front derailleur may not be the best choice for your frame.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.
