    My budget bike build

    Hi all just wanted to share my bike build with you and get maybe get some advice later on.

    I spent months online looking for cheap ally full sus frame to start my build, originaly i wanted a Kona stinky or something with similar rear sus design as i love the look of it but when this one popped up cheap i couldn't resist.

    I had an idea of what i wanted but no decent parts so i decided to build it up with what i had and upgrade later.

    The seller said it had come out of a Saracen factory as a discarded concept, how true that is i dont know but with no other identification i bought a Saracen decal to go on it.

    After that i waited for cheap mid range parts and bagged some better forks, nice looking wheels, seat, brakes etc etc and so now she looks like this.

    she's not far off my original imagination of what i wanted but some upgraded longer travel forks are next on the list.

    Let me know what you think

    Definitely unique. What kind of riding do you do? Do you know how much she weighs?

    Building up a custom bike is so much fun. +1 for being different.

    i do all sorts of riding on it, i take it to work, along bridle ways and easy downhill, no big drops or anything like that. i don't know how heavy it is but it is heavy, feels like it could take anything i can throw at it!
