Ooops! Sorry. Please move to the 'younger section'
:oops: :oops: :oops:
Posted before but has been tweaked slightly...
Here's my Pace, one of the last Rc200s

Frame Pace RC200f8 16 1/2" (non-compact)
Fork Pace RC38 Airforce II
Headset Hope XC with Hope Head Doctor and Hope spacers
Stem Pace RC 45
Handlebar USE Aluminium with USE bar ends
Grips Onza ULEs
Brakes XTR 960 Vs
Brake Levers XTR 952 STI
Shifters XTR 952 STI
Front Derailleur XTR952
Rear Derailleur XTR 952 short arm
Cables (both gear & brake) Stainless inners with Shimano outers (and added shiny red bits!)
Cassette Dura Ace 12-27 (9 speed) with SRP red lockring
Chain Dura Ace
Cranks Middleburn RS7, with Ti self extractors
Chainrings Middleburn Hardcote Slickshift 24,34,44
Bottom Bracket RaceFace Ti Taperlock
Pedals Time Atac Carbon
Quick Releases USE Ti spinstix
Rims Mavic 517 ceramics
Front Hub Hope Sus
Rear Hub Hope Ti-Glide
Tyres Michelin XC Pro 1.9
Tubes Michelin Latex (but red valve caps rather than the green ones)
Saddle Flite Ti/kevlar
Seatpost USE Ti alien cyclops (350 x 27.2) with a Pace shim
Weight bathroom scales puts it at 19lbs 4oz but I would question that, suggesting over 20lbs probably in the 22lbs region

Other info: Most of the stock bolts have been replaced with Ti e.g. bottle bolts and washers, seat clamp and seat binder. This frame has an RC300 headtube which is externally butted rather than the standard tube with the metal badge. Keen eyed British readers will note that the brakes are set up the wrong way round, this is so I don't get confused (my road bike has euro brake routing as it gives better cable runs to the front brake)

When building a Pace, most people like not to think about that one, its the only painful part of the build.
