    Saracen Excell

    I've brought one of the above mentioned Saracens a few months back and reading on here a few people say they have good frames, but bad components. I'm thinking of spending some money (not a lot - no more then say 100 on any one thing) so what do people think I should get?

    I've already added Crud catchers, DMR V8's and a taller seat post (and a new front rim and rear wheel due to crashes).

    Hey, Saracens are good bikes for the money, the frames are prettyu solid but they sell their bikes cheap buy providing low end components, if I were you, id upgrade the Fork next, or possibly the cranks...

    For 100 you could pick up a Marz EXR pro, or a nice new crank and bb...

    I've never heard of them but, then again I'm stateside... A cursory look at their website has left a good impression... They look like a killer bike for the money with a nice HARD look, sleek and not too flashy. They remind me of Trek's Bruiser series a bit. Nice Bikes.
