After a suitably muddy ride last night

2006 Kraken frame, home painted Ford Metallic purple
Superstar stem, Bikehut carbon bars turning a Manitou Skareb elite set of forks

SRAM X7 (front) and Rocket (rear) shifters operating LX front mech and XT rear, XT cassette.
Truvativ Powerspline crankset running double and bash
