that saracen has similar characteristics but not my cuppa tea. for carbon i only like f1 bikes and trimble.

no pictures of the fs bike yet, needs to be completed which is far away now.

Hi think your right on that one - The saracen was the newer F1 full sus model but had saracen put on the F1 frame for saracens show bike at that show in 1994-95 saracen never took it on shame i think its a super looking bike all of them F1 bikes

Are you butting your full sus with the hardtail F1 in your photos 8)
