Hi guys, just picked up a bike for a guy at work to commute on but its that new looking it would be a shame to abuse it like that when you saracen fans may appreciate it better. its a 1998 ( I think ) team saracen rufftrax and it looks practically brand new! hardly showing brake pad marks on the rims! all original, most parts saracen branded like tyres/pedals/stem/saddle etc absolutely no rust or wear whatsoever to anything. a few marks from storage and a bit dusty. I will give it a wipe over and put some picks up when I get chance. My first proper mountainbike back in the day was a saracen conquest elite so I have a bit of love for saracen! :wink:

As I said in my first post, I feel this is too good to ride to work for someone who wouldn't appreciate it. If any of you are interested in a swap for something more modern and preferably a hybrid type bike and cash either way let me know. Cheers, Rob.

It's not a high end bike mate so I'd just ride and enjoy if I were you. Looks tidy.

Agreed, it's tidy, but sadly not hugely desirable. Get out and ride it. :wink:

Takes me back though - attended the factory launch for that year (late '97), they had the whole range there on show, some nice top end stuff. Sold loads of them, and the abomination that is the 'Havoc' :shock:

Oh, I agree. it's just, you know, it's old but new and shiny! Might keep it myself for a pub bike and find my mate something else!
