I saw this guy in the backyard about 5 years ago, and its always bothered me to know what it was as I've never seen a spider like it here in Saskatoon, and no of Google searches I do for spider identification lead anywhere.

It's legs were solid black, not striped like most images I'm finding that even slightly resemble it. The legspan would be about the size of a dime or nickel I would guess. The stripping continued all the way over its back to the other side, there were no breaks or dots or anything in the middle of its back.

Thanks guys, I will forever wonder what it was. Whistling

Like this maybe?

One of several thousand species of orb spiders, commonly referred to as "garden" spiders.
