It's a bit like going on Max Power with a classic car though surely? All the ASBO hoodie brigade are only interested in neons and bodykits, anyone that knew about cars would appreciate the heritage.

It's not like the RC100 got slated by everyone, and any bike in that size ain't gonna look pretty. People on this site go on about 17" (or whatever) being the optimum size for a frame to be aesthetically pleasing.

Getting into cross forum slating strikes me as one of the more futile past-times on the internet. Surely the whole point of differant sites existing is to cater for our differant tastes?

Many of us happily exist on both forums. There are good and bad on every site. At the end of the day a forum exists for people's opinions as much as anything else.

STW hoards mocking the Pace RC100


Poor title IMHO - having actually read the posts the vast majority are positive.

Tis a gate tho!!


Weren't they all gates? I think it's lovely and still lust after a Pace but they never made any small enough (reckon their trials frame would be classed as retro now though).
