I'm having to sell my beloved Pace to help pay for a road bike. Its somewhat of a 'Bitsa' at the moment, RC30 forks, pace stem, X - Lite flat bars & bar ends, USE post, Deore 26/36/48 cranks, slick tyres, XTR hubs, 8 speed XT mechs etc. I had it converted to take a disc at the rear (using Pace bits), but the Rc30s are v brake only. I've had it from new and it hasn't been off road for 7 years. That said. it has a few scrapes here and there, but no dents. The headset has seen better days and the rims are part worn, as is the rear mech. However, everything works fine. I'm looking for around £350, plus post if required, but I'd rather not post it. I can probably deliver to Cumbria, Lancs, N Yorks areas or maybe further afield. Pics available. Plenty of interest last time, but it is still for sale. a similar one went for over £600 on ebay last week, so that's where this one is going if it doesn't sell this time!

Think I have seen pictures of this.

Frankenbike doesn't come close. Ask for a close up of the disc mount for gawds sake.

No, you don't. The disk mount ruins the bike. The words 'barge pole' and 'don't touch' spring to mind....

Ah, ok. He made it sound like a factory bolt-on in the ad.

Not so. Pace did an drop out with disc mounts attached, this bolts on to the seat stay on a purpose built bottle boss bolt.

I have one for my RC200F6. Can be converted back to non disc with just a 4mm and 5mm allen key. I assume from the description that this is what we are discussing.

Doesn't sound quite the same.

There is a dropout with the lower disc tab on which looks reasonably 'stock' from the pictures'. The upper disc mount has been welded directly onto the frame......

Ahhh...

A picture tells a thousand words. I am working with a lap top and a Mobile from ship so it would take 2 days to get a picture up! :lol:

Sounds very dodgy in that case.
