With an extraordinary spec list at a reasonable price, the 2011 Saracen Myst Downhill Racer puts the name Saracen back in the high-end bikes industry. A competition-proven veteran, the Myst features a frame of a single pivot design that comes with a linkage driven shock.
Both front and rear bases are well-covered. At the front is a Boxxer RC fork and at the rear is a Fox Vanilla R shock, which are both excellent units that only require the basic adjustments.
In terms of geometry, everything meets the requirements of a modern standard downhill bike. Designed to stand the test of time in the worst of cycling conditions, the 2011 Saracen Myst Downhill Racer features large bearings on the linkage and larger bearings on its main pivot.
