Great thread - explaining as it does why my square Pace had to be anything other than an RC100! (I just don't have the patience)

That's probably because it is new. Looks to be one of the rerelease ones:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SELLE-ITALIA- ... _662wt_689

Key differences are black steel rails rather than silver (although some originals had black, alloy rails), vinyl cover and no stripes next to the word turbo (white stripes on early, rainbow on later ones.

Best way to check is to tip it upside down and look for the date stamp!

ok, when i took the pace apart i just put all the old bolts in a tub, so can anyone tell me where they go ? are the lime coloured bolts titanium ?
still waiting for the frame to be done from argos.
also i bought an xc pro hub and recently bought a 7 speed casette, only to find out today they are not compatible, is the hub for an 8 speed casette ?
nothing is straight forward with this build.

i thought i would try the cassette on the 36 hole hub i got and it fits,
so my next question is, can the bit that the cassette attaches to, be swapped between hubs ? if it can then problem solved.

Buy a spacer for the 8 speed hub.

The "lime green" or pale gold as most normal sighted people call them bolts are alluminium.

I'd be interested in whether the free hub from an 8 speed suntour hub can be swapped on to a 7 speed hub. I've some 7 speed xc pro hubs that I may run 8 speed on, so bought an 8 speed hub to do the swap, but for the life of me can't see how to get the free hub off. I'd be happy to have a go to see if it is possible if anyone can tell me how.

I'll report back once I've done it highlighting problems, pitfalls etc.
