Building a disc cross bike up from very little so need quite a bit :?

10 speed groupset everything needed so starting with what shifters I can get then go from there matching the rest liking SRAM rival or 105 ?

Cross or compact chainset 172.5mm

700c 135mm spaced disc wheels consider 29er wheelset

shallow short reach bars

Avid bb5 or bb7 disc calipers + rotors

Just about a complete bike really :lol: :lol:

I've got a single avid BB7, brand new never used, complete with all bolts, 160mm HS1 rotor, and adaptors.

I've only got one because I ended up buying a full set for my parkpre, and only used one of them.

actually after thinking about it, if you're going to use drop bar levers then you should look for BB5s, which I'm pretty sure are designed for drop bar cable pull - the BB7s need V-brake cable pull, so wouldn't work too well with road STI levers.

Same for the wheels , using mtb hubs and road rims .

And bb5 are rubbish compared to bb7 .

There was a guy selling a complete cyclox groupset including wheels on stw for £300 , but that was a bargain so probably gone .
