Yeah, the Pace stem is more or less my favourite bit on the bike. It's just such a nicely made part.

Going to make some tweaks to it soon though. I've got a Flite to go back on it, and a GT Hadley hub to go on the rear - once I get around to servicing it. I need to sort out the front brake as well. The Hope XC4 is a bit rubbish to be honest!

are you thinking bar ends? some x-lite ones in pewter would look great, the ones with the weld at the bend and the round, spun ends :)

Mmmm.... was probably going to avoid bar ends for now. I've got Race Face Carbon risers on it, so best not.

That said, i've got some original X-Lite Stubbies in Silver, stuffed in a drawer in the garage........maybe when and if I move it to a flat bar !

well i have a confession to make...i have risers (x-lite low rise ones) on my karakoram which functions as my commute bike, and i have small bar ends on there (german made ones i have seen badged as 'pro' and 'cube' they have thumb rests on the ends and weigh 70 grams) and before that had the x-lite ones...i know it breaks all the rules but my GT is a bit small for me and i like to stretch out on the bar ends...i have ritchey WCS bar ends (the smallest ones) on my lucky strike...i also have a very low riser on that bike...ritchey WCS carbon bar...i actually like the look too!!! i should have my eyes burnt at a stake for such heresy!! :oops:

Nice one you have here, clean :D

Always keep on thinking about the way the toptube ends so short back of the seatstay.. Looks a bit weird ict the older Psyclones.

Sorry about the pic quality.

Built by The Guv'nor himself in 1998 I think.

Cool.

That's only the third white one i've seen - if you include mine. The other was being carried by some guy in an old issue of MBUK in some race or another.
