About groupset in my first CX bike.

Hi there. I usually do CrossCountry in my Mtb and a lot of urban cycling (i like alleycats), and I am building my first CX bike (moderate budget) and I have some questions about the groupset...I am buying the parts from diferent sellers (ebay), for now I have:- Gallardo Kong frame (bamboo frame)- Avid BB7 disk brakes.- Picasia carbon fork (good price)- shimano 105 FD 5700- shimano 105 shifters 5700 (2x10)I am going to buy:- shimano slx or xt 9 speed rear derailleur- shimano 12-30 (road) or 11-32 (mtb) cassetteSo.... I do not know what crankset to buy.... Maybe a shimano 105 50-34... Or should I go with a more specific cranckset for CX?Should I buy a rear derailleur like a 105 or tiagra short cage and a 11-28 cassette?I am totally new to CX and here in Bogotá it is a new sport... Very rare....Thanks for your opinion!See More
