I've wanted an E-stay Saracen for a long time and this popped up on Ebay reasonably locally and the seller accepted my offer so here it is.
If I'm right the 93 Race Elite used the left over 92 Kili frames but was specced with a cheap groupset, this had mainly Altus A20 parts.

The only original bits left are the frame, forks, Zoom stem and Ritchey Logic headset.

I was going to put M735 mechs etc on it but Fluffychicken had some M900 bits that he wanted to see used so it seemed rude not to (thanks Ben).

What a gorgeous bike! there's something so visually appealing about Saracen E-Stays (well, all E-Stays in fact :)). I'd love to strike a deal on one myself. Enjoy it in good health 8)

There appears to be some sort of new fangled braking system on there - pray tell, what is that system you are using??

Mine has zoom stem. Various xtr bits and rocket rons. I have the graphite tyres which match the xtr colours.
I only recently joined the forum and am surprised to see how many of these keep appearing.
They ride lovely but have scars up and down my leg from that middle cable guide on the top tube.
