Saracen Myst DH


“This one is the show sample (black one), with a premium build, but we are still looking at a raceable bike for around the £2k mark. We’ve got a medium (black frame) and large (white frame) that we will do shock testing on in March. The bike is the first sample and uses a conventional front section – We’re working on a front section with new tubes and these will be ready closer to the launch in July. At the moment the thinking is a mechanically formed tube–set as it allows us to better control the tube wall thicknesses than with a hydroformed tube. The weight of the bike in the picture was just over 38lbs. We’re serious about the future a wouldn’t rule out a Race Team for 2011.”
