Finally finished the Saracen [enough to ride anyway]
I am still waiting to get a better saddle and the Thomson SP is 6 weeks away
Here is a pic I took on my phone while on a ride on Sunday...
I know I should have took some decent pics before I got her dirty but I could not wait to get out, even in the filthy weather.
Rides like a dream, very light too - feels much the same weight as my Scott Spark so I am guessing 22.5 -23lbs
I'll take some better pics this weekend.
Thanks to all for the advice about finishing kit, forks etc... and for following this build.
I think the bike really does pay homage to the latter part of the glory days of Saracen.
