    There's some deals on https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/groupsets?f=2258 that might be some use to get a starting price and have a look around.

    There is loads of places, wiggle, crc, merlin cycles etc and even ebay to check

    Is it the full groupset you need including brakes etc?

    As you could shop around if its just the gears you need.

    Ah just depends now what the prices are, as really there isn't much in it between slx and Deore XT

    I myself use XT but I was at the time able to get a good deal on the rear mech and shifter.

    Im Seeing XT at £290 which seems to be the average i guess

    Is £299 for XT including brakes and cranks? If so that sounds a good deal.

    Both my bikes are running 11 speed gx and it looks like that’s £290 with cranks but no brakes. Planet X were selling Guides really cheap recently for about £35 an end - but you need handlebar clamps on top of that.
