Next is my '06 carrera bought brand new a couple of years ago. I was very impressed with this bike for the price, but i've recently begun upgrading it. So far it's all stock apart from an avid juicy 3 rear brake, hayes HFX9 front brake and rockshox tora 302s. I'm planning on putting on the raceface turbines off my patriot once i get a new crank for that and upgrading the drivetrain to all SRAM X.7



So there's my modest collection, what do you think?
