Hi all, hows it going?
Just signed up as *thinking* of selling my beloved Saracen Havoc for a newer bike but can't find any info on it whatsoever - or anyone else selling one either as its about 14 years old if my maths are correct!
Figured that someone on here would have an idea of what its worth in its current setup.

I've had it from new (bought from john lewis when they sold them) and has always been well looked after and regularly serviced. I have also upgraded the brakes, wheels, and a few other bits since - the spec I know is below:


Frame: Saracen Powder Coated Y-Frame with Shock Works Coil Shock ~3.5" travel (dark blue frame/yellow rear triangle)

Fork: Yellow RST 281 ~2.5" Travel

Rear Mech: Shimano Acera-X

Front Mech: Shimano Acera-X

Brake Levers/Shifters: Shimano Alloy V-Brake Levers with integrated Shimano EZ Fire 7x3 rapid fire shifters (21 speed)

Front Brake (upgraded): Shimano Deore LX V-Brake with coated cables

Rear Brake (upgraded): Shimano Deore LX V-Brake with coated cables

Wheels (upgraded): Mavic D521 SUP Double Wall Rims with DT double butted stainless spokes & kevlar rim tape

Hubs: Quick release Shimano off road hubs

Tyres (upgraded): Panaracer Dart Front and WTB Velociraptor Rear with Specialized self-sealing inner tubes

Chainset: Saracen Alloy Cranks/Rings

Headset: GeForce A-Headset

Stem: Saracen Yellow Powder Coated front loading A-Head

Handle Bars: Saracen low rise bars with removable brace

Saddle: Ritchey with yellow Kevlar corners

Seat Post: Saracen Alloy Micro Adjust

Pedals (upgraded): Red anodised alloy pedals with ultra smooth bearings (the only reason I bought red pedals as the bearings were so smooth!)

Grips (upgraded): MaxPro yellow with forward facing knobs on the ends

Computer: CatEye Cordless 2 with stem mount (needs battery)

Mud Guards: Black Front & Rear Crud Catcher/Crud Race Guard


The only things that need sorting on it are that the forks could do with a service (they work fine but aren't as smooth as they should be/used to be) and the computer and wheel sensor need batteries as they are both dead. There are also a couple of spots of rust on the headset and on a couple of the bolts etc. but nothing major at all and nothing on the major components but want to be as accurate as possible.

It has been in my shed for the best part of 5 years (cleaned and oiled before I stored it) and I recently got it out, cleaned it and re-oiled it all and apart from the forks everything seems spot on. I only did about 10 miles on it as wanted to get it professionally serviced before pushing it too hard but now I fancy something a bit different so here I am!


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
