Thought I'd share my retro morning.
After breakfast my wife has gone Christmas shopping with her mum, so I move my Pace frame into the living room and start fitting the Stronglight X15 head set and RC36's to it. Put on the Manic St Preachers (Holy Bible) and realise that I am wearing a Kona 'rotary' tee shirt and a pair of jeans with the hole in the knee. I have just fitted the Purple ATac to see what it looks like. The '90's never ended here! :lol:

That looks superb!

If I was building it I'd probably go with a Salsa stem but I'm liking the A-Tac too :D

Cheers
Stu

The ATac is for sale as it is TOO purple for the pace!
I am going for a Salsa or a ControlTech in black.
It is a F6 (number F618-022)
The post is a Ringle (from Parkers of bolton) Not retro but I am 15st and haven't bent the one on my Orange so I bought another. Ideally I'd have a Syncros or a USE but I always bent USE's.

Just been for a 3hr ride on my Dyna Tech roadie, Brrr, winters here!

Nice! Looks a tidy example.

Is that disc mount an aftermarket jobbie?

I'm not sure, doesn't matter now as it has been modified into a non disc drop out! I have a pace disc mount and a pair of single speed drop outs spare. Does any one want them?
