Hi Guys and Girls,

[this is also posted in general MTB chat]

This bike's a bit like me... old chassis, new attire [still quite nimble though]

I am sure you will agree, this Saracen now looks a mile away from the ebay Bankrupt-Surplus beginnings, as seen on this section some months ago.

Well I finally got around to having the 97 Judy's colour matched.

Kinda looks a bit like a Fat now eh?

The Judy's are heavily customized....

1. Respray Purple
2. Risse Racing GEM damper
3. Kronos coil spring in LH leg [rebound was still too fast with both fitted, even with new Risse damper]
4. Customized elastomer/spring stack in RH leg [I cut the spring stop shorter to allow more compression of small spring and cross drilled the elastomer]
5. Ti canti studs.
6. Enduro fork seals - no need to use boots now.
7. I had the steel steerer cut off and Ti one welded in it's place [Just kidding Wink]

Big thanks to Gil for his help with decals - again.

I also sourced a 3DV anno clamp for the Thomson SP and Stem!

Next on the list is to have the Mavic X717 Ceramics laced onto the Hope Pro III hubs.

Watch this space Smile

Cheers,

Chaser.

That is proper lush - I rarely give out praise but I think you have done an exceptional job.

It's looking good, Chaser. How much travel do you get with those forks?
