Pace. Every retro collector should have one :D

Not even ridden mine yet, which I feel a bit bad about. Partly cos I dont trust the dodgy Quill/ahead adapter bollox on there at the mo.

f4 in bits cos its shocking to ride may try again and build it in retro gear
but until then it remains on the wall as sculpture

sorry guys but it's the truth

Mikee,

Don't think the F4 was meant to take forks with the sort of travel the ones in that picture have... That might be why you found it bad to ride - the geometry would have been shot...!

even with the origonal rc 36's on it felt odd
kinda hingey in the middle it's had about 6 different builds and
still feels crap
conversley old c/dale m900 built with random stuff feels perfect
with rigids/80mm/and current 100 mm forks ,maybe the pace is
that finley tuned that it needs the perfect set up but..i dont think so.
i realise i'm in a minority of one here.

still love it just for the looks.

Hi Kase,

Looks like an F6 there buddy..I'll not mention the SIDs you have attached to it :lol:

You know guys, it looks as if we might have enough for a geneology of RC200's, from my F1 right up to the F8, something I've been working on for a while...cool!!!

Mikee

The F3 geometry was designed around 55-65mm forks. When I up'd the travel of my RC36 Proclass's to 80mm mine was boat like so they went straight back to 65mm.
