Having started the "Do I really want a Pace?" thread recently it seemed the answer was a resounding YES so much so that it was going to be very hard to persuade anyone to part with theirs ! But I have finally lost my Pace cherry and have acquired an 18" RC200 F2 in shiny silver and I'm in square love.
It has the 1" headtube of the earlier models and I have read that cracked headtubes from headset installation can be a risk. How best to avoid this ? Alloy or steel headset ? Any particular brands known to be problematic ?
Also I want to fit my White Industries cranks which are in keeping with the squareness so what width BB am I going to need ?
And one last thing
can I confirm its a 27.0 seatpost I need ?
Any advice would be most appreciated.
Old enough to know better but doesn't.
