Funny how there seem to be so many (relatively) on here.

Getting as common as Konas :lol:

We must have at least one of each colour - black being the coolest 8) :lol:

Wish the seat posts were a more common size though, with mine I really want silver finishing kit but can I find a 30.0 Thomson Elite in silver? Can I fudge. :cry:
Might just shim a 27.2 but Pace seem to think that's a bad idea, anyone have any opinions on that?

Mines not finished yet either, but in this pic you can get some idea of the flavour.

Keep looking Jaz and a silver thomson will come up s/h. I would have prefered to buy new but I've got a s/h one now and the Kona post in the pic. It was supposed to be silver but actually matches the grey of the Pace decals really well. 8)

Oh, and everyone knows that Morris Blue is the colour. :roll:

:lol:

Please don't use those On one forks :(

They are a terribly harsh ride even for a rigid fork.

The ones I had were nearly 1.4kg too :shock:

I'm gonna try them. I have a set of suspension forks for it too, so I can chop and change if I feel like it. My eyes are still open for a better rigid option though. :wink:
