Looks like a tidy spec, intrigued by that frame.....

Any guesses?

yeah i saw that, what he's done comic wise is actually quite cool although in the metal probably not great i'd imagine.

i was wondering about the frame aswel, i'd imagine it's something basic-ish though, the reason i say that is the sort of mismatching tube sizes, the front end looks massive by comparison with the rear which tends to be a feature of more basic frames.

Those dropouts and the overall geometry look quite neat though.
It's a cruel thing, this curiosity we all have... :roll:

I think its a y2k Saracen Kili flyer, they had Magnesium frames and were about £1k new. I'll try and find a pic online or in a magazine.

I'm also thinking Saracen Kili Flyer Magnesium, they had odd sized tubes but were very light and ride nicely :)
