Hello,

I have just purchased a Pace RC300 F1. What is the best way to clean it up so it sparkles?

Cheers,

Macscheen

What size? If it's big enough, just post it to my house .....

I used car polish on my RC200 and it comes up lovely after a couple of coats. Less wind resistance, too. I'm sure I'll notice that!

Sorry, it's a small!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll have a go with the car polish. Wind resistance isn't a consideration as I have just bought it as a turbo trainer bike. I was using

but I wanted something a bit blinger as it is going to be stuck in my lounge/dining room!! I don't think my proper bike would be suitable either due to bounce factor on front and faff factor of tubeless on rear and changing to slick every 5 mins -

All I need now is a set of pimped wheels that accept disks. Any ideas?

By all things square you really should have Hope hubbed wheels (or Royce or Middleburn).


First rule of squareness: make your bike as British as possible. Never ever fit not Pace forks to your bike, as that is a sin. :wink:
