For those that care, here is what I am up to bike wise.

The Pace is my daily rider, M900 XTR and is as good as ever.

The Orange is hung off the roof of the shed while I collect the bits for it's eventual build. Deore DX and Maguras I think... watch this space!

The Dyna Tech road bike, my oldest bike, my daily roadie now with Shimano STI. Fast and comfy!!

My garage queen, Dyna Tech Ogre XT / MT4 Ti.

A aluminium, titanium and steel retro MTB. All British bikes (all bar the Orange actually MADE in England) what more could I want?? :D

Nice Fleet! What is the size are the chainrings on the Pace? Proper man sized they look. Always felt that bikes lost something visually with the coming of Microdrive systems. I know that gear ratio and things are the same, but it just doesn't look right. (In my opinion.)

You riding the Ogre a next weekend then Pete? :lol:

Not sure if that was a serious question or if I just found the phrase 'riding the Ogre' amusing. Probably best not answer.

I could not afford a Pace BITD either. That's why I have one now :D

Flite Ti on the Dyna Tech Ogre and the Pace, Turbo Matic on the Dyna Tech roadbike.
