Hi Guys,

New here, looks like a great forum. Thought I'd start by asking a question, help needed.

Was just in the alps and a screw came loose from my front disc. Wore out the bracket holding the front pads 'unit'.

The forks a old school pace racing RC37 Dual Crown XC.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement bracket?

Can upload a pic if required.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Chris.

No idea what you are talking about...
Try http://www.pacecycles.com/?page_id=355 first and/or justbackdated on the forum.

Take a photo of the item and post it here so we can see what you are referring to.

If its an official spare from pace - as mentioned there is a member called Justbackdated aka Tim Price aka Fork English. He is an ex pace technician who obtained most of their spares after pace sold out to Dt Swiss. He will most likely be able to sort you out.

Ouch! That could have been nasty. Tim is definately your man - but be prepared for disappointment. Most pace disc adapters are quite tricky to get hold of. An ad in the wanted board on here or a long wait on eBay maybe your only hope - but see what Tim says first.

Or get one made, it's just a bit of CNC'd Alu in the end...
NOT that I can do that.

Was it PACE or HOPE that made the brackets ?

Don't know if these are too early ?

Sorry about. I've not sorted the order out yet and titles. There is a thread in the catalogue scans with them in (in higher resolution and possibly more)
