This is intriguing. I've never seen a bike quite like this. Is it German?
How much travel does that rear shock provide? or is the spring just for show? The seat post shock seems a bit redundant to the shock built into the frame.

I really like the black and chrome. I think you need to lose the orange/mango front skewer and get a "plain" black seat post. The lack of identifying decals on the frame makes it look very clean. I think if you removed the decals from the fork and .... god forbid :shock: :shock: lose the Syncros decals it would look very stealthy.

This bike is very cool. I want to ride it :twisted:

good luck

I may have missed one amongst all the words, but I don't see a Saracen - and every competition needs one. So, one of my four - '91 TuffTrax Elite. Cheapest bike I've ever owned - even after all the "accessories". And for me one of the most comfortable. I was seriously considering dropping over a grand and a half on a Spa Ti Tourer, but the extra +1400 quid for a weight saving of just over a POUND didn't seem like a good deal.

So, mock away. I'm too old for vanity and far too old to get tense about a BIKE!

sorry, yesterday I forgot to answer your questions. Of course, the suspension is real and provides 40mm travel. :wink:
I've installed this seatpost, because I had no other in this size (25,2mm! :shock: ) ..but double the suspension is not too bad :D

Cheers

Poll now up > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=179404

Good to see some discussion on the merits of professional photographs. Makes a nice addition to the BSO / WDS / eliteism / garage queen / snob / inverse snob / it's all fun / it's all serious debate we have almost every month.
