You can run this poll as long as you like, but it's not gone be cool!
off course there are some very nice bikes, but the brand just isn't cool..... sorry!

Looks like a Kili Flyer from about 1997, with modified SS drop-outs and the original segmented Saracen forks.

I agree. Saracen will always hover just below being cool.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is that, I just love the wishbone rear and the aestheticaly similar and rather fetching front forks


Sorry for the tardy reply guys, DSPaul is right, a Kili Flyer Comp from the mid '90's, I have one hanging up in my garage, it's a really nice looking frame... in my opinion. :D

Bit late but stratospherically uncool ! (sorry).

Despite many shouts of 'they were sold in Halfords',
GT & Kona were both sold there but managed to retain some
of their cool image.

Obviously Saracen didn't have much to start with.
