    need advice on drive train setup

    I have just purchased an Avanti Ridge Rider frame that has a Shimano SLX front deraillier. I have also got Shimano MT55 rear wheel with a 10 speed cassette.
    Taking into consideration that I am on a budget, what would be my best options for crankset, rear deraillier, shifters and chain.

    Avanti. Your in Australia or NZ?

    Not really worth upgrading IMHO. Cheaper to buy a better bike.

    Deore 10 Speed Disc Brake Groupset sell what you don't want.

    Then you will want a fork
    Rockshox XC30 TK Suspension Forks - Poploc Lockout
    All adds up very quickly.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    Hi

    Actually got my bikes mixed up. Its my Norco EXC 1.0 FS that I am looking for the drive train components for. As stated I've got a MT55 rear wheel with the 10 speed cassette. Also have the SLX front deraillier, however I'm not sure its for 10 speed as it does not have the -10 on its part number.

    I'm located in Perth, Western Australia.

    You have a
    Frame
    Rear wheel
    10spd cassette
    Front derailleur possibly 9 spd.

    That group set is a good deal. E bay what you don't want/need.
    otherwise look at UK based online shops

    Also try ACF BNA forums, Huck to Flat forum (WA) and Perth Mountain bike club forum, rotorburn for second hand parts.
