    My wife’s (2014) Carrera banshee.

    It’ll getting a bit of an overhaul for the spring, she not ridden it over winter.

    Took it out of the shed and started stripping it this evening.

    It’s still in standard form so its in need of some decent parts.

    I have a few bits ready, some new, some taken from my bike ( I get upgrades 😆 )

    Sram Glide rs beakes

    Sram 10 speed shifter

    Nukeproof pedal’s

    Nukeproof warhead bars

    Raceface chester stem

    Shimano Zee Rear mech

    Shimano 10 cassette + chain

    Magic mary and hans damph tyres.

    I’ll post up some pic’s tomorrow after the wash.

    Not the greatest project but still fun to do.

    You are putting some nice gear on that but it will still be a Carrera Banshee.

    Lipstick on a Pig springs to mind.
