    Ball park price on a 2007 XT groupset?

    Have not been able to find any info online...is it out yet?

    Idea is to build a 2007 FSR Stumpjumper pro frame with full XT and a Fox fork (not sure what model)....

    Thanx

    Use this link to see some M760 groupset prices including various wheelsets. Wheelsets probably included because the groupsets quoted include the XT hubs.

    I think XT didn't change and is still M760 It's the XTR that changed to M970.

    If you have the time, just get a piece one at a time on eBay and you will probably save $$$. That is what I did (except I got juicy carbons instead of XT brakes). I could total what I spent on what if you want.

    I think XT didn't change and is still.

    I just picked up my new ride with an XT crank and XT front derailleur. The fd has been redesigned and does not flex like it use to.

    I've been looking at doing this, also because it will be easier to put past my wife. I could spend $1200 on parts over a few months rather than all at once. I'm afraid of paying the shipping costs on each individual item though. I might wait for sales at my LBS's and pick up a few parts every time theres a special.

    Okay, I'm starting to sound like a shill for Mountain High Cyclery. I have no association with Mountain High Cyclery or Larry other than being a happy customer.

    I recomend you the following:
    - create a few wish lists that you are interested in buying. Basically separate them out so that you don't get any unwanted attention.
    - email them to mtnhighcyclery@comcast.net (or follow the link off of http://mtnhighcyclery.com)
    - get your quote back and you will find the prices to be very competitive.
    - He only charges you ACTUAL shipping cost and no more.

    I'm not the only one here who's bought from him. Scrublover has bought from him. Pete's new Industry9 wheels I believe come from him.
