Probably the last thing that should ever be said of a pace.

Quick update on this. The wife was after a new bike and I missed the C2W scheme at work because I was on holiday so decided to build the Pace back up for her.

Will be similar to the original pictures at the start i.e. wheels, forks, rear mech and some other bits till I get some new forks for my Trek and she can have the RC41s on it then. Will have some Hope Tech M4s on and managed to score a RaceFace Atlas AM crank on ebay in purple to go with the Atlas AM bars I got her in purple as well. Everything else will be black I think.

Looking forward to it as this was a lovely bike to ride and couldn't bring myself to sell it thankfully.

The purple is in homage to her Zaskar. Ordered a ton of stuff last night from various places. Only short a black stem but working on that.

Will be in touch sir.

Some bits for it that turned up today. Got the crank for 60. Surprised or maybe nobody likes purple.

Stuck some stuff on now. Short a mount fro the front caliper so probably going to leave it here as also waiting on forks for the Trek as it is donating its forks to this.

Brake isn't mine so not removing the hose to route it properly as it will be replaced shortly.

Bit more progress. Been too busy this weekend to get any further but at least the brakes are bled. Lidl stand appears to be alright as well.

Tis done. Rides odd but front end is a lot steeper than the bike I have been riding for the last few months exclusively.

Hope the old mare likes it.
