    Hey guys, since my mantra is finished, ve decided to upgrade the frame. Gettin a Haro X2 Extreme frame, as some of you may already know 🙂

    Can anybody think of any problems i might have transferring the hardware off my saracen onto it, so far ive figure i’ll need a new gear cable/outer, bought an XTR teflon coated set.

    Was wondring if my BB will fit.. i hope so cuz i cant afford a new one 🙁

    The shell width on my Saracen is 68mm as far as i can tell, my chain should be ok as its the correct length to run an outer ring, which i dont run.

    Any input/help/advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂



    Oh, and my mantra 3 frame is up for sale in the Buyin section, soon to go on ebay if no offers 🙂

    Well, the frame is on its way, should get that by monday.

    Can anybody think of any problems i’ll have transferring or should it all go smoothly?

    My bb should fit, My old frame is 68mm and the new one is 68mm, so far so good.

    Lets just hope the subframe is wide enough for my rear tyre eh? 😛


    P.S. The saracen frame and some bits of the bike are on Ebay for a steal of a price me thinks 😀

    the chain might be a problem as your going from a hardtail to full suss it could possibly have a longer rear centre.
