Jimi. The saddle is that low for the Mrs. Its a bit big for her hence low saddle and search for shorter stem. Could really do with a 17" instead of 19" but would need to be something nicely finished to swap as I've put some graft into this one.

Dynamo frame, chucked together on a budget/scrounge from whatever I could get hold of, so no classy period build and likely to stay this way for a while I'm afraid!

So just how many Oranges in the world have Pace forks on them?

Is it the 'just down the road' effect or are/were they the best forks out there? 8)


AFAIK, Orange had an OEM deal with Pace, so they got them supplied in bulk at lower cost. Whether or not there was any difference on spec, I don't know, but the dropouts were stamped with 'O' and another letter / number so Pace could make sure they weren't being sold separately from the Orange frames by unscrupulous dealers.

Probably worked pretty well for Pace, as Oranges were always well reviewed, so it can't have done them any harm to have their forks associated with Orange bikes, and vice versa.

Mine are stamped 'OO' as I bought them off an unscrupulous Orange sponsored rider about ten years ago ;-)
