Buy a different colour one?

If not that plenty of steel xc frames out there.

What travel fork would you use?

i'd suggest an rc200. the old pace bikes are way cooler than the new bikes they make.

Hi,
I've got some 100mm fox forks ready to go on. Not a fan of the other colours, the white really caught my eye! An rc300 would be ideal but we all know how what they are like to find! Needs to be small as I'm only 5'7"!

Wanted one of those a while back until I heard about what went on at Pace. Kinda took the shine off.

Worth a look imo would be the Orange R8 frame. Not making them this year so a 2011 can be had for £399 (£599 rrp).

The r8's are really nice, cant make my mind up about the colour scheme though! Not to worry as ive just aquired a pace rc300 from another member and im chuffed to bits with it! :D
