Do you have to use road 650c rims or do they make MTB tub rims?

those "DT" forks look like rebadged Pace ones to me, makes sense as Pace are owned by DT - wonder if Pace will be UK only or will dissapear?

nice to see Frischi still using a 2x9 setup 8)

I know this is a retro site, but pace have to a certain extent been bought by DT, which should hopefully improve on their frankly shoddy previous products ;)

a bit OT but are Pace bad? - I had assumed that they were good as the rigids were/are and the old suss forks were good... :oops:
for modern XC forks are SID or some Foxs the way to go?

I personally don't care for the company, but they're the only guys to produce rigid carbons in 1" steerer. Ordered in MAY, turned up originally in 11/8" and the wrong 440mm length. Finally got the correct ones at the weekend, only to find the crown race isn't big enough, so i've had to bodge it with a coke can shim, great quality for a nearly £200 fork :evil:
