Saracen Myst; A New DH Bike From Blighty

Relaunched and revitalized UK mountain biking brand Saracen have recently released their new down hill bike, the Myst.

Quite a striking machine in the new Saracen colours... there is even the possibility of a factory sponsored team... just maybe...



The factory build of the new bike is as follows:
Frame Myst custom butted tube set featuring signature suspension design running on 37mm main pivot bearings and 28mm linkage bearings / CNC Taper 1 1/8″ to 1.5″ headtube / 203mm travel / 150×12mm dropout / Worldcup geometry Rear Shock Fox VAN R Fork Rockshox Boxxer Race 203mm travel Drive 9spd Shimano Alivio 9 Rapidfire / Shimano Sora RD Chainset FSA GAP Mega EXO DH with Gravity Guide Brakes Quad Duece hydraulic disc 203mm rotor F/R Wheelset KT Sealed bearing hubs 12mm rear/20mm front with Saracen DH 32h rims running Maxxis Highroller 26×2.5″ Cockpit FUNN RSX MKII stem/FUNN Fatboy 750mm bars with WTB Silverado Comp Colour Gloss White Sizes M and L.


Or if you have the opportunity, pick up a frame and build your own:
Frame Myst custom butted tube set featuring signature suspension design running on 37mm main pivot bearings and 28mm linkage bearings / CNC Taper 1 1/8″ to 1.5″ headtube / 203mm travel / 150×12mm dropout / Worldcup geometry Rear Shock Fox DHX RC2 Headset FSA Gravity SX PRO Colour Gloss White Sizes M and L.

Prices are GBP2,299 for the complete bike and GBP1,499 for the frame. No word on availability on Saracen Bikes in New Zealand, but rumor is that an Australian based distributor is keen, so watch out.
