Honestly??? I've hardly used it. My commute to work takes all 5mins and I've not had the time to give it some hammer! I'm doing my normal thing of if I get a new bit of kit I'll use it more! Go figure?! All my spare time is taken up with the kids or boxing (not the kids)!

the badboy is the workhorse.

Its all over! :cry: She's winging her way to Denmark as i type.
The reason... just not used enough. I really couldnt justify having such a beast in the garage. Sad day but i know she's off to a very good home.

I hope you don't end up regretting this...... Better to have and not need it than need and not have it etc. And its not like you can just pick up another one if you fancy it in the future.

Whatever, good luck with the next build and I'll look forward to reading about it 8)

Cheers dude. It is a real shame it's going and out of all the Paces I've had so far, RC200 F6 & F8... this has been the best ride, as I'm sure you'll agree?!
It's a XC weapon and will be missed. There's something special about owning a Pace.

Indeed.... I've noticed a big difference swapping a 18" Pace for a 16.5". The 16.5" probably has a shorter wheelbase, so it will feel more lively as a result, but the 18" frames felt a bit dull and I really noticed it after riding my other hardtail, a ti Merlin. Maybe it felt dull because it didn't fit me properly but I now have one that fits and it might just be the best bike I've ever owned.
