Bit of a bet with one of my mates (sober I might add
) as to who can build the best budget XC bike, I know there are much better and more expensive options but where's the fun in that
And this way I get motivated to finish a build
The rules are as follows
Frame and forks prior to 1997
The basis for my build is a 1996 Saracen Rufftrax, Tange framed. Stock seatpost, stem and bars.
The bits I have so far are
Deore LX/chinook wheels
STX RC cranks, front and rear mechs
Deore V brakes with parts bin levers
Cheap unbranded beartrap pedals,
Budget £25 for tyres ?
Any suggestions on where to spend the next £25
My Rival has a Marin planned I think, all I have managed to find out is that it has a Grey and Purple frame.
