Finally completed my Pace. I had an F8 for a while but it was too big (20.5" Frame). I picked up this 19" F3 from the forum (thanks burkeredh :wink: ). All it needed was some new decals and here she is. I'm aware the tyres aren't to everyones tastes, but i don't care.

The RC-35's have been pretty much completely rebuilt with new decals, seals, elastomers, brake fittings and even the dropouts rebonded! They look like new and are smooth as silk (as long as they don't get too cold).

The Brake booster is an addition due to obscene flexibility of the seat stays.

All in all as finished as these things get. Enjoy! :)

Let me know if those tyres ever become tiresome, I have a lovely metallic green bike that they would go a treat on! Beautiful bike, although I could stand under that top tube!
