    im new to this stuff

    hey all.
    im just about to buy a carerra kraken and wanted some advice about modifying it.
    Ive been into biking a fairly long time and have looked around at some bikes and i dont have a large budget.the carerra looks a decent bike with decent components and wondered if its a good choice.
    If i do buy it........what would i want to change about it in the near future???what bits first??
    thx for any help.
    cheers guys.

    Google didn't turn up any bike related results. Do you have a link to the company???

    I've never heard of that brand of bike.

    With that, I'm going to say, "NO, it's not a good deal".

    Where are you looking at? A real LBS or a department store?

    Whatever breaks first.

    If you're looking to upgrade before you even purchase the bike, may I suggest applying that money toward a better bike initially?

    In canada we have department stores that sell high end bikes. They are like a LBS without the old guy in the back complaining about missing tools. ...
