Nice 8) 8) 8)

The red ones seem to show off any scratches the worst but that looks mint.

The frame and fork represent an era, imho, when Pace were at the top of the game. The later frames and forks may have been improved upon, but by then other companies were doing it better and full sus xc bikes had arrived :(

I'm looking forward to seeing how it progresses but its still pretty nice as is :)

I agree with you fudd. F7/F8/RC300 definatly top of their game! I nearly had a red F6 but went for the silver F8. This looks mint. I'd not change much about it! Get it dirty n ridden!

Is yours a 16.5? The proportions of smaller Paces seem to work for me better. My old F8 was an 18' and from some angles looked like a gate.
This is a stunner. Pop up some more pics so we can have a drool over

I think you have put your finger on it there. I've always struggled to see what people like aesthetically about Pace frames - but this looks superb.
