    Saracen Kili Team find!

    I found this 'old mountain bike, needs work' on the local marketplace for £20 It looked worth the risk ;) I picked it up from a lovely guy who had enjoyed it when he was younger, but it had recently been left outside for a few weeks to make way for a modern replacement. I got it home and it...

    Sunn Cycloss - a gravel design before it's time?

    Ah wow, just found the responses to this thread. That looks fab, and what a background! Your fork looks like it has less rake too.

    Wanted NO LONGER REQUIRED. 700c 1" touring fork with long steerer.

    Thanks for response, yes ideally with canti mounts. The current fork has good clearance for 30mm tyres plus mudguard so hoping for something similar.

    Wanted Mafac racer brake calipers

    I've got this set of Mafac centre pulls, with a non-matching but quite nice pair of brake leavers. It has the cable guide for seatpost bolt, and one of the straddle guides is original. Only thing to note is the two washers on the front brake holding the brake shoes got crushed in over-zealous...

    Wanted NO LONGER REQUIRED. 700c 1" touring fork with long steerer.

    Hello, I'm building up this Orbit frame as a flat bar touring bike. However, the fork legs are not straight, and both face 0.8mm off centre. Ideally i'd like to get them repaired but reading online suggestion is not worth it. Therefore, does anyone have anything similar that they no longer...

    For Sale 58cm Raleigh 531 "8806" with Sachs New Success, Campagnolo, Iscaselle Giro d'Italia saddle etc.

    Hello! I recently purchased a touring bike online, and the seller had this bike available too that had been left to decay outside so of course I took it too. My original plan was to canibalise it for parts, but after a full strip and clean it seems too good for that, so offering for sale...

    Saracen 1 and Saracen 2

    Indeed, original forks returned. The frameset is heavy enough without needing springy things :)

    Brian Rourke 731os race

    Very trick tubeset! The size makes it look fantastic, and very comfy ride. My experience on an old cougar was it was perhaps a little brittle (I got my frame repaired after the first crack, but not the second). However, that remains my favourite frame I've ever ridden

    Sunn Cycloss - a gravel design before it's time?

    Yeah, I've found those images. The catalogue image doesn't show any mounts on the legs though. However, either way, it adds to the weirdness. Why have mounts on the fork legs, but no bottle mounts?

    Sunn Cycloss - a gravel design before it's time?

    I've recently finished building this old Sunn Cycloss frameset up. It arrived in a very anonymous and rather neglected state (incorrect sized seatpost, seized stem, etc). I believe it is from 1998. The geometry is pretty special, with big clearance far beyond a 33mm CX tyre, so hopefully...

    Saracen 1 and Saracen 2

    Cheers, the forks must be at least 5 years younger than frame, and the brakes even younger still. However, it's getting built to be ridden :) I remember the fastest guy locally to me rode one of the pink Kilis with trademark toptube extending behind the seatpost - I so loved that bike! This...

    Saracen 1 and Saracen 2

    Back in the day ('94 ish) I wanted a Saracen Tufftrax (I'd hired one and had great fun), but was very lucky to receive a second hand Scott Expression. Lovely bike, with geometry ahead of its time, but despite its superior groupset, as a mostly road cyclist I found the super-sloping top tube...
