How would a rigid single speed Pace fare up there? :?

Yes that sounds cool. 8)

Great idea and suits my new rediscovered love of Pace.

It all sounds a bit elitist to me. Why discriminate against those who prefer American steel frames :lol:

Pace have moved from Kirby Moorside,but that sounds like a good idea,from dealings with Pace in the distant past they always seemed like a good bunch.

Gil often rides Dalby Red on a singlespeed rigid 29er but he is an animal! I did it with a single front ring (38t) last week so if you pick the right ratio you will be fine.

Si, what are we talking in gear inches? Or ratio if you like.

Better off asking Gil about that. I had 38front and a nine
speed 32/12 on the back but probably only used half of the ratios- it's not too bad on the climbs up there.

I've got a mate who still has most of his Pace, not exactly sure which one but it's an early one. I'm trying to get him interested in our site, perhaps this might be the catalyst!

I'm tempted by this – haven't made it to any of the retrobike meets yet. What dates are being suggested??
