Thanks everyone, aside from the back brakes and change of seatpost she's done (in my eyes at least! ) untill I snap, break or crash somthing.

Turner XCE for me and Zaskar for herself are up next. Cheers!

Interested in hearing more about your XCE. They are an awesome frame and I know I'd rather ride and XCE over the Pace any day.

Wheels tarnish the build for me slightly but I don't think Spinergys look good on any bike!

Are Spinergy's that unloved on here? The Marmite of wheels? : )

I know the various horror stories on breaks, snaps and well fairly dramatic face meets pavement type falls. But I always fancied a pair on a pace.

Had i gone the disk route, definitely a set of the Sage wheels by Crank Brothers or thrown the budget and got some Industry Nine wheels..

Anyway, cheers for looking!
