The photo would be pre Kelty then? Bit muddy up there I'd imagine.

Oh and there's a reply to your question in the post 98 forum.

With nil expectation of ANY votes I am obliged to enter my Saracen Kili - simply because it is my favourite bike of all the very many (c. 50) I've owned in past 10 years or so. It has stayed with me much longer than any other (usually much more expensive) bike and will almost certainly be the last to leave to me when I finally hang up my wheels.

Back trouble has recently seen it converted to butterfly bars, proving IMO the virtue of versatilty that "retro" A/MTB frames provide. So for those who have not yet reached bus pass age (lucky b*****s), a template for riding on and on....

And - obviously - Dendy's Kili is bound to get MY vote!

Is it just me or are we seeing more bikes that are obviously still well used this month?
