Yeah :shock:

I know mines a off brown at the mo... But as a colour range I think they all look really classy. I'd seen a Black one on STW and it looked average but Marks looks fantastic. I'd say they are the best hardtails Pace has pumped out since the RC200/300's :D
I'm happy with mine, can you tell?

Just received a Hope SS/Trials wheel for my Pace.

Going to fit the Alfine on my Genesis along with the rigid forks from the Pace and add the Hope SS/Trials wheel and a pair of Reba Team forks.

Plan is to regain the love of SS but if things go array then I will be going a retro tastic 1 x 6 as the Hope freewheel will take 6 cogs a la:

Will be different I guess :lol:

Rear brake cable routing needs a Mahoosive length cable/hose doesn't it!

Looks good

What are the forks?

I finished mine up a while back, even got one of those silver Thomson posts as well :lol:
I didn't like the brake routing under the top tube so got new long hoses and routed it under the downtube, it looks much neater that way.
I went with 1x9, straight bars, polished Ritchey classic stem, Fox RLT100's etc.
Will put some photo's up sometime soon and a full spec list.

Is it not meant to go under the downtube? Which would mean a massive length. :?

I didn't like it that way so went under the top tube meself. :lol:

Stem will be changed once I know what length I want but happy enough for now. A fair bit of the kit came off my Kona Blink including the forks, which are just Tora SLs I think. Not the most expensive of forks but pretty decent according to my retro standards. :lol:
