Not quite finished yet - the RC38s may well be going.... The rotors don't match and it'll be a 2X9 RS7, not the RS8 that's on it at the moment. Would like a shorter stem that matches a bit better too. And one of the earlier Hope headsets.... But for now, it'll do.....
Frame: Pace RC300, 16" serial RC30016212, formerly owned by Awkward Kid
Fork: Pace RC39, 100mm.
Headset: Hope (current model)
Stem: Pace RC45 100m, silver.
Handlebar: X-Lite XLR Pro Titanium that's been on my Dave Yates and my RC200 before this.
Barends: X-Lite Pro Stubbie
Brakes/levers: Hope Mini
Rotors: 165mm Hope 5-bolt
Shifters: SRAM Plasma 9-speed
Front Derailleur: Shimano M953
Rear Derailleur: Sachs (!) Plasma - probably predates the frame.
Derailleur Cables: Jagwire teflon coated, 5mm housing.
Chain: SRAM PC89
Cranks: Middleburn RS7 170mm
Crank Bolts: Middleburn
Chainrings: Middleburn 30T Hardcote, 42T hardcote slickshift
Chainring bolts: Middleburn
Bottom Bracket: Hope titanium, 113mm
Pedals: Shimano M540 SPD
Wheels (turn out to be JUST OK as hubs and QRs were discontinued 1 year after RC300 was introduced)
Hub Skewers: Original-type red Hopes
Rims: Mavic 3:1 UST (NOS from 2001)
Hubs: Hope Ti-Glide R /NOS F Titanium disc
Nipples: DT Brass
Spokes: DT Competition
Tyres: Racing Ralph UST
Saddle: Flite SLR
Comes in at just over 10kg - with no particular attempts at saving weight. Will probably swap the UST tyres for 1.8 Rocket Ron Evos which will save over half a kilo and give better fork mud clearance.
Some of the bits came off my RC200 pictured alongside - which now has red Renthal +130 bars (from Jez I think), an M-952 E-type front mech (thanks kiwideturin), USE titanium seatpost (used to be alloy), Selle Italia Novus Ferrari saddle, Pace integrated stem/steerer (thanks Tim) and RC36 Evo IIIs (thanks NorthernDave)
Everything except the front hub, grips, cables, cassette, tyres, saddle, rims, spokes, chainrings, chain, chainring and crank bolts came from Retrobike members. Thanks chaps, one and all.
