Hey there Saracen Lovers, I understand this is the place to come to chat about my Kili Ultra.
It has been in storage for about 6 years and I am thinking it's time to bring her back into action (after loving a day in Coed Y Brenin on a rental bike!)
To get her trail worthy again I am going to need to do a couple of things to her. The main one being replace the crank, I think I put a new BB on it not long before it got stored. So that should be ok. The crank on it at the moment is an XT from the same time period.
I have no idea how old it is. I bought it second hand after the owner had had it about a year and never taken it on any real trails (more money than sense!) It was probably about 17 years ago?!?
I don't actually have the bike with me at the moment (it's over at my Mums) so I can't give you too many details or photos yet.
Is it going to be easy enough to find a replacment crank?
I might change the shocks on to, I think they are Quadra 21s at the moment. Could do with a bit more travel.
The gearset is all XT, gripshift changers, DX V-brakes and some nice riser bars.
I know it's not one for the purists, but surely bringing it back into commision must give me some retro cool points
