Just acquired this beaut
been properly wanting a Pace RC200 for years, and IMO the F8s were the pinnacle of Pace's proper bikes. The RC300 was cool, but I never dug the carbon seat-tube.
Here's some pics of the build so far.......going for a red (obviously!), silver, black build, with 1 or 2 touches of gold - chainring, QRs, handlebar shim.
Yes, the wheels need a clean!
