Surely the Nishiki above is a b-stay...

Got to be the Brave Warrior for me. Still on my hit list at some point! Ideally like this one below.

No cracking on these (as far as I know). Didn't Saracen also make the crack-tastic aluminium Conquest? :wink:

Never heard of a cracked Bigfoot / Smokestone / Ozone Co2 however that's probably down to the numbers made & since mine still isn't finished I really can't comment on the ride :facepalm:
Surely this is a question for incorrigible? :D

or the wedge, I find them both to be visually attractive bikes, although I have never owned one.

other than that, the Kestrel mxz is still a headturner in my book.

The problem with the above bikes is that they are so few and far between making them pretty much unobtainable either through fatigue or low volume builds.

At least with the STEEL Saracens, you got a quality frame and a decent ridable bike that you are not afraid to take out of the garage.

Pacific cycles knocked out a few

Plus, following the rope throws up all sorts of weirditties!
