Had a browse through Gumtree while having a cup of tea this afternoon and saw this Ti300 had been put on 10 mins earlier. I'd wanted to try some Ti out for a while, but not at Ti prices, so gave it a go and got it (not full Ti but you can't have everything). Only 10 minutes from my house so I picked it up straight away before he'd changed his mind. :wink: :wink:
Anyway here it is and it looks even better in the flesh. A bit too much purple bling for my taste inc purple Light, trip computer, water bottle and Crud Catchers but everything in good order - except for the RC35s as you can see in the pics - I think Tim, justbackdated might be getting a call soon. (Crudcatcher on top tube as collapsed fork doesn't allow room on down tube)

I think it's a 1994 but ready to be corrected if not.

Before and after tidying up pics shown

Oops. :oops: :oops:

didn't notice that as I've reversed the bosses on my RC36s and assumed the seller had done the same, but.....looking at the dropouts it's obvious.

I wonder how long he's been using them like that.

When I sort the fork out I'll have to check if there is a way of reversing the brakes so they fit on the front like I've done on the RC36s. I never have liked the rear facing brakes on Pace forks - no rational reason, they just look wrong imo - even if there is no difference in performance.
