Saracen is a nice brand and they do nice bikes! Danny Hart rides for them and if i remember correctly he rod a Saracen Myst DH this year! but sadly yeah, isn't such a publicized brand as others are..

Nice bikes, unfortunately they are still recovering from the damage that Halfords did to their brand name over the years.

Saracen are hopefully better than they used to be with regard to tolerances. Between that & their warranties, I am out

Was a fan once, not now

But, my opinion does not matter - key word from above ^^ 'recovering'

Does the Ti Ribble look like a Nordest or am I just seeing things?

Yeah maybe...but they ALL look like the very original Vendetta that was done and designed over a decade ago, when people used to say that type of (now hardcore-fun-long-slack-progressive-what else they can find) geo, wouldn’t work, that it needed to be XC rather than DJ, bla, bla...the Nordest one especially, is pure plagiarism...amongst others!

Yes,... To me.,the Ribble looks more like a Sick. Or even like an old Ragley. Same rear stays. Obviously regarding just the looks. All very different frames

This. Has Brant had anything to do with design or maybe made in the same factory as the on one barf/vomit/puke frame?? Either way £1300 for a complete bike with quality steel frame seems like a good deal....

You're right, but this is always happening ... the world is copying successful products, or solutions, for the sake of opportunity or necessity... yes, many are copying after Kingdom, BTR, etc... others have copied fire weapons after Colt or Mauser, chairs after Thonet.. I don't even know if you can call this plagiarism ...

Those Ribbles look nice. Listed as $1900 Canadian with a Reynolds 725 frame. Don't think there's much comparable to that.
