Although I see a debate brewing, as this is a "Downhill Special" and not a "Full Suspension Special" ( i think we had that not long ago right?) then I would imagine the bike nominated would have to have been classed as a Downhill Bike when new? When did downhill specific bikes first appear?

Agreed on Jerky's Pace, it's simply stunning.


if I was going to race DH , the bike in my fleet I would choose would be this one . :wink:

Oh go on then. :lol:

I submit for consideration my 1998 Pace RC500 F1.
More pictures, full specification and information

It has been a time consuming, costly and challenging project with lots of problems to solve. I am still working on lacing the HED downhill rims though!

Thanks for all the comments thus far on it, I realise this botm is likely to have a lot of love/hate action, and fully understand peoples reasons.

What constitutes a retro downhill bike anyway?

A lot of race entries BITD entitled you to race XC AND DH. And most people did it on the same bike.

By that rationale, my Dave Yates was a DH bike, even when it had the original Project 2 forks.
