Surely a radially spoked front wheel makes up for it a little!!!

Pace frames - thou shalt not fit "not-Pace" forks - thou shalt try and be as British as possible


one of the first things mentioned in the bike building rules thread

still looks (& feels) wrong, could fit any raked alu fork and it would look the same as above - wrong.

Just my opinion

(do like the radial front tho :wink: )

Hehe,

I'm from Dorset originally and put a 150mm Orange Stalk stem on my Clockwork....urgh...it handled like a pig in a snowstorm!!!

Love the wheel, but yep, that fork and stem have to go...still, at least your Pace is being used, and that's a thumbs up in my book!!!
