Hi all,

I have for sale a set of Pace RC41 XCAM forks. I have not owned this particular set from new as I bought them as a spare set for my RC405, which in the end I sold. The forks have been hanging up in my garage for the last 3 years, out of harm's way, so are pretty much as they were when they were removed from the bike. These forks are the last of their breed of UK manufactured carbon forks and are increasingly rare.

Would like around £80 for them, but will accept offers!

Here's some pics:

The carbon legs are in good condition. They have a few marks here and there, but no damage to either the legs or drop-outs. Fork stanchions are unmarked and don't show and sign of wear discolouration:
Image

Stanchions have 140mm visible - I can't actually remember what this equates to in travel. Probably 120mm or so:
Image

The crown is undamaged apart from an area of cable rub (which wasn't my bloody doing!) which is cosmetic only:
Image

Again, back of the forks shows no damage, although there is some lacquer starting to peel around the fork brace area:
Image

Back of fork crown, nothing exciting to see here:
Image

Front of fork crown. No race is fitted to the steerer, so you can add your own as required. Obviously, straight 1 1/8" steerer - we'll have no tapers round here!:
Image

Lower magnesium alloy drop out and ISO disc mount in good nick:
Image

Steerer cut down to 213mm:

How light? 3.6lb:

Anyone know what travel these are ... as I need a 100mm travel fork and have no idea which to choose.
3rd dibs if there are!

Hi all,

Thanks for all of the interest. These are ace forks and I've had many sets and enjoyed them for years, but sadly the change to tapered steerers have ruled them out (they don't fit on my shiny carbon bike :) ) so, after procrastinating for years, they had to go. I still find it amazing that, in many ways, they are superior to forks being sold today and yet I bought my first pair over 10 years ago!

I can announce that jimo746 was the lucky winner and his prize is winging its way to him as I write this.

Thanks everyone,

Daern
