My Pace RC36 Comp forks have a removable steerer tube. Shame those 31's don't. This allowed me to fit a 1'' steerer for my Merlin frame, which is only titanium plated.. not quite the same.. but the only reason they're not on it atm is because they have Magura brake mounts.

That's rock n roll. But hey, it's such a nice build, find where the sweet spot is for your handlebar height and hack off the top of that steerer. It's a much cleaner look.

You could do different stuff with that build, but you can't make it any nicer. And I mean that in the good way!

Looks incredible pencilman, nice use of yellow throughout and a spanking component spec.

The bike just looks 'right'. I want to take it for a bombaround!
