    Does anyone ride this bike?

    What size are you riding? Your height etc.

    I ask as its going for £270 but with only a 15″ frame left!

    I’m 5′ 6-7″ with a 30″ inside leg, I’ve got a feeling a 15″ frame would be slightly on the small size.

    I have one. 5″6″ with 80mm stem. 30′ leg.

    The reach is similar to a Cotic Soul small.

    yes have the 15″. I tend to look at the reach of a frame. I had a Cotic Soul in small (16″) before and they feel very similar. The Soul was stolen and I didn’t have the £500 for frame to replace it.

    The Kili is a great frame. The fillet brazing looks great and a lot of work has gone into the frame (all the little bracing pieces are curved rather than straight).

    I think you will be on the edge size wise. I wanted something quite compact and easy to get around tight trails.

    The bit I dont like is the fully integrated headset but it wasn’t enough to put me off. I’m in Bristol if you want to have a look.

    Many thanks, I reckon you’ve sold it to me!

    I’d love to come and have a look but I’m in Nottingham!

    You have a a1x9 setup? What sort of riding you get to do on her?!

    It’s now 1 x 10 speed. On one single chainring and Hope bash guard on front and SLX shadow+ rear mech and I have never dropped a chain. XT brakes. F120 forks. Wheels Stans 355 on XT.

    I have a full sus as well so this is for local wet rides (so have been riding it rather a lot this year). Mostly Leigh Woods & Ashton Court. Tight fast following single track. Did a day in the summer with Basque MTB near San Sebastian and I keep up with the Yeti 5s.

    The aqua looks great.
