2008/2009 Carrera Vulcan 16" frame, bought off ebay with standard spec except from Syncros big box rims with M525 hubs, Deore XT M761 rear mech and Marzocchi Bomber Z1 Wedge forks.

Spent a bit in the past few days and have now upgraded a few bits and spec is now as follows.

Deore M590 chainset
Shimano HG 50 cassette
Shimano HG53 Chain
Deore M590 RH Shifter
Deore XT M761 Rear Mech
SRAM X4 front shifter and mech
Deore LX M585 front hydraulic brake
Shimano RT62 180mm centre lock rotor
Ritchey XC Pro 120mm stem
FSA XC-270 riser bar
Ritchey Truegrip pro Grips
WTB Graffiti SF 26x2.2 tyres
Shimano MT15 wheelset
Marzocchi Bomber Z1 Wedge

I've kept the seat post, headset, Marzocchi forks and Deore XT mech as they are all still in excellent working order, I am considering selling the forks though as I want a set that are geared more towards XCing with lockout for commuting.
Only bits left to replace are the SRAM X4 front mech and shifter combo and a new rear brake which will most likely be a matching Deore LX M585 with a 160mm rotor, with the front gearing replaced with Deore M590 shifter and Deore M591 mech.
