    Scored a Blur XC frame looking for a full group..

    I am starting my first build and I have a few parts, set of wheels, and a shock but was thinking about getting a full 2x10 XT group. Brakes, cranks ,derailleur w/clutch, cassette, chain, BB etc. I am not sure which bottom bracket I need. And I am just assuming a full group is the way to go. Then I can save up for a better/newer frame. Any tips on the build are appreciated.

    I found a few groups on eBay for around $700, any one have any better suggestions?

    That is a smoking deal, only 11-32 cassettes, though.

    Anybody know if the M781 SGS derailleur is a clutch-style?

    No bb and it looks like the rotors are not six bolt. Still a screaming deal.

    I normally order in country, any guesses on taxes and fees coming from the UK?
