Nice in an understated way.

I like it.

Good sourcing on the saddle too.

Must be the best specced Saracen MaxTrax ever - Chainset looks really cool as do many many other tasty bits and bobs, looks like you've done a lot of shopping!

What's it like out and about?

Not sure yet as I've not had chance to ride it!
Feels light, but I'll have to get used to narrow bars again as I've been riding with more modern, wide risers for the last couple of years.

First ride today.
Really pleased with it.
Light and flickable, V brakes really strong and shifts crisply. That 46T ring really let's you get some speed up!
There's still a decent amount of bounce in the forks as well.
That old technology stills does the business.

The narrow bars took some geting used to, but I really enjoyed it.
Was going to sell it on, but think I'll have to re-arrange the garage to make room as I want to keep it for a bit.

Very nice build, surprised at the weight though, I expected it to be lighter with that spec.
