Just thought I would stick this up here even though its built.

Got this off of Mark (letmetalktomark), It's one of thoes 96 Saracen Kili frames, the ones with the Ritchey dropout's.

Decided to put the forks I got off Mark a while ago back on it and set about building it up with XT, Magura and a smidge of XTR.

Love the ride of these and this frame fits my lanky frame perfect.

So guess what I went and did???




Yep bought another in the same colour and size :roll: This will be my SS project. Below 2 pics

Spec to follow.

Yes, I was very tempted by that but decided not to in the end - which you're no doubt quite happy about... :wink:

To be honest I put a bid in and forgot about it as was at a funeral until late on Friday. Got home and yes was a bit chuffed :D

Going to build the frame as is and look at maybe getting it powdercoated later in the year. Thinking a british racing green??

I've gone through a few retro bikes since being on here and could never get on with the geometry of older frames but these suit me perfect.

Love the seat stays and the Ritchey dropouts.

£26 was a bargain. Was also going to bid but thought it was pointless as knew a few on here were watching and rather it got used then sat in my shed for a while.
