Personally, and I'm not a big Aluminium fan, I'd go the Pace.. 8)

Pace, join the club.

As seen on the Pace thread, every retro collector should have one :wink:

If you lean toward British bikes. Pace.
If American metal floats your boat. Cannondale.
If you have a very understanding Mrs. Both. :lol:

I love my Pace but I am very concious that it is a hard ride. For an all day ride I'd take my Orange every time. I cannot say if 'dales are more comfortable.

Split the difference - get an RC200 from the mid 90s!
