Hello folks, :D
just thought I would post up some pics of this Pace I got off :evil: bay.
You may well remember this bike as it originally appeared, I read the posts on this site and as I remember there was alot of joking regarding its appearance! :roll:
I have changed it a bit, I hope for the better. :?
Does it meet with your approval? :wink:

Much better, thank the lord!

Yum Yum.....Mavic headset! :D

Only change I'd make is trim the steerer tube down a little, and change the bar to a black one. Just IMO though.

Thank you for rescuing it :lol: :lol:

I always thought they should be on some triathalon bike or something, not in the woods. They are are also the worst company in the world as far as customer service goes.
