If I need a hand finding some?
Or if I need a hand getting them fettled?

I might try a "wanted" ad - you never know.

The manitou sxr from 2000 is disc compatible and 80mm or 100mm depending which model you can find,they are a great fork,but so are the pace,they both have grease injection and are easy to maintain 8) 8)


Yes but it's an Orange. Oranges only speak pace. They only speak tourist Manitou.

(Just kidding of course)

Red wouldn't look right on this build - silver with a hint of blue ano :)
There's some slinky looking SIDs out on eBay in quite a nice metallic blue - but non-disc

@DBMTB
If I could land a Pace RC?? to bolt on it - I'd be happy.
I've currently got some Maniou Splice on it - too long, too heavy and too WRONG - but it gets me out on it. I was only building it as a winter hack :?: :?:
Is that an RS2 in your pic there? 122mm or 124.5mm BB for you?

Cheers!

It´s an RS3 on a 113mm Royce.

But I have an RS1 on a 122mm Hope, on another bike if that´s any help to you.

I've got an Truvativ on the MrXC at present - on a 113mm.

But have a rather nice silver/blue RS2 to pop on there. I'll ride the Truvativ through the winter and then sort the RS2s out with a new 122mm BB when the weather's better.

They come around more often than you might think. Just hang in there.

Happy days!
I'm soon to receive some rather nice Pace RC36 ProClass II - from a very nice guy on here!
He'd put a FS thread up in April and they were still available!

Thanks for your help chaps
