I've had a Kiliflyer Pro for about 15 years and it's a great allrounder. It's the raised-chainstay model which avoids all of the mud-clogging issues - I had a Hillman MTB from Melbourne previously (which I used as a courier hack), and that had U-brakes which were great in Oz, but were truly appalling for 90 per cent of the year back in Blighty.

The Saracen has given sterling service, climbs like a mountain goat (with those short stays) and is still moreorless original - hydraulic Maguras never needed a service, good paint under stacks of insulation tape.

I'll get some piccies posted on the gallery shortly.

If anyone else knows about any raised chainstay Kili's gathering dust (and looking for a new home), I'd be interested in hearing from you.

Cheers, Mombee.
