1997 Saracen Protrax.

Brought as a complete bike from Mark (legrandefromage), all I've done is sort some decals via Gil (gil_m), swap the saddle, fit a new rear canti hanger and polish it. The frame, I understand, is NOS.

Running gear is a mix of LX and XT.

I may swap the stem, and the mint Deore DX seatpost may be more at home on my Stumpjumper, but all I intend to do in the immediate future is put some SPD's on and give it a go.

First ride planned with the former owner on 05/05/10.

Cheers.

No, the decals arent foil, but a damn good replica though.

Thanks.

Initial spin round the garden gives an indication a slightly longer, lower stem is required.
