    You should probably level off the saddle though.

    nice one, carreras are very underrated, very similar looking to mine too (even got the juicy 3 rear and hayes front brake haha). Some decent spec on there, could do with some new forks though, i can't stand suntour! I'll be getting all SRAM X.7 stuff on mine soon hopefully and a raceface turbine crankset when i get some new rings for it (it's the old atlas)
