I have just fitted a Hope headset to my Pace.

It is a beautiful quirk of fate that the gunmetal grey anodising I ordered is almost the same colour as M900 XTR mechs. And the same colour as the end caps in my X-Lite Ti bars.

Deep joy!

Yep, it's the attention to detail that can and does make all the difference.

I am now going to order the quick releses and headset spacers to match.
The Pace will then be as finished as any bike ever is! :lol:

Yup.

That is a lovely bike BTW. I always hankered after one, it was a toss up between a Pace and a Zaskar.

The GT won 'cos of durability worries. Still think they are one of the coolest Alloy frames around though 8)
