Been after a nice ht for literally over a year and was planning a build for the near future when my path crossed with this.

I even have a spread sheet on my computer of the spec i was intending for the build and this is almost exactly that spec but already done.

So hopefully by the weekend i should be welcoming to the stable a new saracen kili flyer titanium.

Excited, giddy, intolerable dont even come close to describing it.

real pictures when i get my grubby mits around it.

Yeah i think its due to saracen getting a bad name a few years back (i cant remember how, bso rubbish i think) and trying to recover said rep.

I love Saracens. I think they let themselves down a bit towards the late 90's with bikes like the 'Havoc' and the 'Raw' (the havoc was green and yellow and the Raw black and orange) They had a real supermarket bike feel about them. I for one am glad that the likes of Mannon Carpenter are giving Saracen a good name again! ...and with bikes like these they deserve it!

A card through the door when i got in from work last night and then a quick dash to the depo passport in hand resulted in this:

Some lovely neat details in the frame, forks seem nice from a quick bounce.

Need to order some pedals but will pinch some from other bike atm, did i mention Titanium.

:D
