Hi,

Just remembering my unicorn bike from an MBUK article many years ago. It was a Pace RC200 being used in an Iditabike event, rims where doubled up, one Magura HS33 on the back, Pace forks.

Does anyone have the article by chance?

Big cheese eating bearded hardcore bloke riding it.

Ta,

Probably not Brant then. Maybe his alter ego Zak Tempest though.

No way, that's mental! I've never seen that kinda thing before, would love to see the Pace too

How do they build wheels up? Looks like they miss every other hole out

Ah ok, I thought it must be a weld holding the rims together but couldn't see any evidence of it in the other pics. 8)
