it's a classic design,and still viable today (not that i had the good fortune to own/try one) in my opinion.if they started to make their classic rc 200,it would still sell like hot cakes.i really think that they let go of a great frame (am not really into their new frames t.b.h).also while i'm at it,gt should bring the original zaskar back (as they did with the VERY ltd edition run of them,that they did) who's with me? :D

I might be wrong but I think Pace sold their factory and soul to DT and f***ed off.
Anyone got the facts?

Don't be surprised if you see something square from Pace again.

It is after all their 25th anniversary next year.

One of their postings on facebook was a "what do you want to see for our 25th anniversary?", responses to which led me to believe that it might be on the cards....

Didn't the know how to make square bikes go when one of the original owners (can't remember which one) got kicked out by the other?

if they are going all square again, which i don't mind, they should atleast go ALL sqaure like the Rc100, never understood why they changed to a round seattube on the RC200 - 300??

It will never happen. They guys who built the RC frames are no longer there and probably wouldn't go back for a gold pig. It wasn't a very nice ending shall we say.
