I bought this at the weekend on a bit of an impulse.
It's a bit faded but otherwise almost unmarked. The build is still exactly as detailed on the sales receipt down to the original tyres except for a USE Alien titanium seat post replacing the original carbon post.

The first owner specified the frame as disc only, it looks really clean without the v-brake posts.

I might replace the bars for some Renthal SUB130s. But other than that I'll probably keep her as she is for the moment.

I'll post some better pics tomorrow.

That's purdy. I love pace frames.

Moar pics please :)

I'm liking the red & green mix, works rather well. So the frame was specified as "disc-only"? does that mean there is nowhere to screw the canti studs into???

I wish I could afford to 'impulse buy' things like that.

Right now, my impulse purchases stretch to a bag of crisps at lunchtime if I'm walking past the shop :lol:

Very nice. Good buy.
If they went to the effort to not fit the brake bosses they might have used that time to make some hose guides, bloody cable ties !
