Dudes, hereâ€™s the reason pace ditched the box section frames.
MBR wanted the â€˜303 built in a heavy duty trail bike specâ€™ . Weighing in @ 29.5lbs itâ€™s hard to imagine that the same frame can also be built into a superlight XC charger @ 23lbs. And for us it was important to show how much the â€˜303 has moved on from the RC300. The box section 100, 200 and 300â€™s were classics, but with a 15 year life we thought it about time those whippets were retired from racing
. Here is what MBR saidâ€¦â€™the RC303XCAM will, if the worldâ€™s fair, become as popular as the square tubed frames of yoreâ€™
â€˜It has the makings of a classic in waitingâ€™
â€˜The compliant rear end, spot on geometry come together in a bike we wouldnâ€™t fail to recommendâ€™
