Right ho, I have been meaning to do this for a while :oops:

1st bike is mine its a jack of all trades, its a 1998 Saracen Killi Team.

Its been well used and bits nailed on to keep it going, My cousin bough it brand new and basically ruined the drive train trying to do trials on it so once he lost interest probably about 2000 I bought the remainder for £60.

I then swapped the bits of my 1995 scott Tahoe onto it hence the earlier parts. That bike again started of as a cheap bike and as a teenager I spent all my money on shiney and new bits for it so here it is

I smashed my pelvis on it 6 years ago and got a new hip 5 weeks ago. so its been retired from proper riding as Ive bought a full bounce 2 weeks ago, but I still intend to ride it, I want some RC36 pro class

with avid speed dials 2.0

shimano lx silent clutch 36 spoker hub on a 517 rim

Image

stx rc parralex hub on a 217 sunrise rim

Image


oh and some sexy cnc stuff, a ballistic stem
Image

the other keeping it real bike is my missus's Sunn Vertik bough from leisure lakes bury for £100 which I thought was a bargain, she wasn't keen however I taked her into it. its a bit twitchy so Im gonna put a raiser bar and a different stem on it for her just to make it more stable

Image

its got coda bar ends on, hutchinson tyres
Image

Image

dodgy forks which I dont reconise

Image


stem and post which i think are sunn OE
