Yep - it's the colour that makes it so attractive, the dark blue version doesn't look nearly as good.
Everything looks cool in "Platsa Blue"...... 8)

Eh? You want internal cable routing, on a frame that is likely to be run as single speed?

They had to do the full cable outer solution to make it possible to run derailler as well as Alfine type gears. Don't see how they could have done it any other way TBH....

£600 gives you a lot of choice when it comes to hardtails these days. I'm not sure the Pace justifies its price.

......lol, perhaps thats the problem now.....!!!! trying to be to much to too many....., (and im a fan of pace then and now.)

Im not interested in whether or not its going to be single speed or geared, im sure that a better soloution could have been found... on a frame at this price, other than a cable tie??????, especially from a company with the engineering background that pace has......? after all they did bring us......iconic british bikes like the rc200 etc.

Well, I don't bother to use the plastic clips - I use cable ties. (doesn't everyone?)
They do a better job......
