Here is my 'new' Pace. The frame is NOS - never even had a headset in it!
To be honest it was a shame to build it up, but riding round it's native home of Bingley moor yesterday made it all worth while!

2 rides in and I am very pleased. I owned an F3 in 95 (when I was working at Pace in Wilsden) so now I am re-living my childhood dream.

Full modern XT build with a Disc mount (off ebay) - and RC31 C-types - naturally!

Rides like it should, but my hands hurt. Looking for some suitable disc mount forks to finish the job off. Any out there at a good price??

elements of the past and the present combined to make something not quite as good as either...

That's very nice. Good to see it built up, and glad to hear it's being ridden.
Nice mix of old and new.
