I take the criticism on the chin!
I know I have still got to make changes here and there - but I didn't think I had done too bad to say that retro bikes are new to me.
I love the wheels, I have only just bought them so they will be stopping on for now.
I still have all the original bits that I have changed, i.e. syncros stem,mavic headset,bar ends, both wheels etc....
Some stickers were off ebay as the ones on it when I bought it were rather tatty. The headtube decal is original as is the one on the seat tube.
The Pace F8 sticker was not put on to dupe people into thinking it is an F8.
I did not really know what model it was until later on after I had added the stickers! I know now that it is an F5.
The only reason the steerer tube has been left a little on the long side, was because I have also got a I beam square stem which I originally fitted and this was 15mm taller than the rc45. So I fitted a 15mm spacer to compensate for when I put the pace stem on, rather than shortening the steerer.
