I purchased this a couple of months ago and must admit I have found it hard to love, being used to my Pace RC300 as a daily rider the more compact reach and more flexile frame have not been immediately welcomed.
I purchased it with Sids and an old M750 XT chainset and have now made my mark on it in an attempt to see if I can fall for it, or whether it has to move on. So on went the Pace RC31 ti/carbon forks and the race face cranks.

(please note the photo was taken without the front brake, I had put the forks on last night, ridden it to work with the expectation that my new V brake mounts would be waiting for me at my desk, only to be dissapointed and extra careful on the way home too!)
