Fresh Goods Friday 199

by 8

It’s here again! A veritable smorgasbord of stuff we’ve been sent this week – it’s feisty, it’s fabulous, it’s Fresh Goods…

Saracen Kili Flyer Carbon


Chipps’ latest playmate is this 2015 Saracen Kili Flyer, in full carbon. The 2014 model has a carbon rear triangle: the new one has gone all the way, saving a total of 600g on the 2014 Flyer.

Saracen Kili Flyer Carbon detail
Lovely linky bits, lots of carbon, some aluminium, and a wall.

It’s still 120mm travel, with Saracen’s ‘TRL’ (tuned ride link, acronym fans) single pivot, link driven rear end, same as this year’s model. Lots of lovely internal routing for us to drool over (and mechanics to cry about). This is one of six in the country (oooooh) – they’ll be about in the wild in October.

From Saracen bikes

Price: £3,699 for the Flyer Team (this one), or £1,999 for the X Carbon frameset.

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome. He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable. Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles. He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds. He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.
