Ever so slightly OT.. Had this Pint Glass since '04 when I **borrowed** it from the Chelsea Surprise SW3 :wink:

Been washed a few times so the gold a bit worn..

Back on track.. Pace frames are becoming a rarity I rekkon.. Esp the RC1, and although Alu. have never been my bag, I wouldn't mind one just to try for a summer.. In pewter or black 8)

I was warned off Pace frames years ago when I had a wee shot and quite fancied one :oops:

I've also seen quite a few break :?

Good looking and nice to ride but perhaps a little delicate for the likes of me :roll:

mine has to be the klein adroit, still havent owned one, there should be a law stating that if you own more than two kleins you shouldnt be allowed to buy any more !! the super rich collectors are out bidding everyone else.

Back in 89 I dreamed of anything U.S. made with big fat tubes. They looked so radical compared to the stuff I had grown up riding (ie. racers with cowhorn handlebars) :lol:
Klein had it all for me as an unattainable dream bike. Then when I first saw the Clockwork I had to have one but the shop only had a Prestige in my size 17.5" so I built that frame up. I think that was a dream of a ride, when I get my Klein I'll decide which was best. :D

Growing up in Pickering, Yorkshire close to the Pace factory, a Pace has always been high up the list. Had a chance to buy a second hand RC100 team with additional milling over shop versions to save, ooh maybe 10 grams total, with mavic headset, integrate stem/steerer, bullseyes, Pace screw on hubs etc but it was just too small.. Not got yet.

Merlin XLM - I have a 1997 which I got second hand a couple of years ago but it's kinda on the edge of retro/not retro - lovely bike though.

Proflex - now have 4, oops!

Guilty secret - Cannondale Killer V/ Delta V, in polished ally. Not sure why, prefer the extra triangle to normal Cannondale hardtails, still debating whether to get onr and build with US exotica or not!
