cool! I have one myself, (I think) mine is a '98 with 853 tubing, it's superb frame and fuelled a brand loyalty in fact, I now have an '80s Kili and a '91 Sahara to go with it :roll:


I love em even if they are officially uncool in terms of brand cred..

I really want one of the 97 wishbone jobs.. Is this still in place in the 98 frames?

I saw your 80's kili and it is 8) 8)


my 853 is a wishbone - does that mean it's a '97 for definite? I don't know if mine is 97 or 98!?!


Not sure :? I know there were 97 wishbone frames for sure so yours could be a 97. Not so sure what 98 frames were like.

Awesome build, loving the tyres and grips too :)

I have the same Push seatpost on my Saracen Traverse, 2 mins polishing with Autosol and the Push text comes off a treat :wink:


Cheers.. I maybe changing the grips and tyres soon tho.. I like the look of the tiogas and they are nice and light but I just know I don't like them as a riding tyre. I never did when compared to other tyre choices although i never did try this kevlar version.

Is funny you mentioned the push logo. I got rid last night and as you say autosol works a treat. :)

You really have done a steller job. If I see a nicer Saracen build in 2011 then I will be shocked.

Absolutely brilliant build. Great choice of bits and just looks so good without being garishly flashy.

Dont forget to post up a post first ride comment.
