Does it have a 1-1/8" headset? And do you happen to know the weight of the complete bike? :)

Would you sell the frame only? There's too many components I'd want to switch when I build it up...

Carbon? Sorry but I want to stay away from carbon. Steel and would prefer the 853 flavor.

I wonder if the 20" frame suits me right....6" tall, I will measure my inseam and check Pace geometry :)

Current bike has a 20" frame but a high standover height. The family jewels almost got hit in my weekend trail ride.

Fair enough, let me know.

As a rough guide, if you have 30"+ inside leg you should be fine
